Real Madrid edge Barcelona as Goal readers' favourites to win El Clasico

Los Blancos have edged the voting with 46.5 per cent backing them for three points at Camp Nou, with only a fraction predicting a draw
Real Madrid have edged our poll on who will win Saturday's Clasico, garnering just over three per cent more votes than Barcelona.

Los Blancos were tipped for success by 5,706 Goal readers - 46.5 per cent of the overall tally in our 24-hour poll - while just 10.5 per cent of voters are predicting a share of the spoils at Camp Nou.

The Catalan hosts, on the other hand, bagged 43 per cent (5,282 votes) despite having only failed to win one of their last nine La Liga matches.

Carlo Ancelotti's men head into the game behind three points behind Gerardo Martino's side, but they will be buoyed by their recent record against their arch-rivals, having picked up seven points from their previous three encounters in Spain's top flight.
