Controversial midfielder looks a good bet to see a card this eveningBarcelona's Sergio Busquets is attracting punters who reckon the midfielder will pick up a caution against Real Madrid. The 22-year-old has made the headlines for alleged racist comments in last week's game and is 2.70 to be cautioned tonight.
Busquets was involved in controversy during last season's semi-final at Camp Nou against Inter when Thiago Motta was given an early bath. He was roundly criticised for play-acting before referee Frank de Bleeckere handed out a red card in the contest which Barcelona went on to win on the night.
De Bleeckere is also in charge of tonight's game and is 1.40 not to give Busquets a card of any nature. The Blaugrana star has so far only been given one yellow card in the competition back in November against Copenhagen.

Yellow or red card - Yes @ 2.70/No 1.40

The likelihood of a red card is 2.30 to occur compared to 1.55 against. At least one player has been sent off in every single Clasico this season.
