Real Madrid vs Barcelona Match Prediction

With top spot in the league on the line, this El Clasico match-up halfway through the season is as big as they come. Barcelona has dominated Real Madrid the last half of this decade, going 6-1-2 against their biggest rival, including three wins by at least three goals.

Both teams have made easy work of their competition their second, combining for just four losses in 30 games. Real Madrid is winning with a near-historic level defence, allowing around 0.7 goals per game, while Barcelona has scored at least four goals in seven of their 15 games.

The offensive production by Barcelona and their recent success against Real Madrid make them the wager to place on the first leg of the 2019-20 El Clasico.

Pick: Barcelona to Win (-132)

Real Madrid vs Barcelona Prop Bets

As the biggest rivalry in the soccer world, online sportsbooks open up plenty of El Clasico betting odds on the El Clasico. Here are some of the most popular bets to place on the contest.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals

  • Over 2.5 -213
  • Under 2.5 +179

Whether it is the talent or the rivalry, the El Clasico is known to produce goals. Going back to December 2011, over 2.5 goals has hit 14 of 16 games. While the juice on the under is tempting (their last match ended 1-0), the historical precedent of the over is too much to ignore and is our best free pick on this match.

Pick: Over 2.5 Goals (-213)

Will Both Teams Score?

  • Yes -213
  • No +163

Like the under, clean sheets in this rivalry are a rare occurrence. Going back to December 2011 again, only in three of their 13 matches has one team failed to score. While Real Madrid is the best defensive team in La Liga this season, allowing over 11 goals through 15 games, Barcelona is scoring at nearly three goals per game (a more impressive feat).

Real Madrid ranks second in scoring this season behind Barcelona. Expect both offences to show up at least once in this game.

Pick: Yes Both Teams Will Score (-213)
