It’s the biggest game of the Spanish Primera Division season as two of the country’s most successful sides go head to head

Real Madrid and Barcelona battle it out in El Clasico at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday afternoon.

It’s not been a fine season for the reigning champions so far as they sit in fourth place, a massive 11 points from the top.

It’s as good as saying that any chance of Zinedine Zidane’s men retaining the title is over but it’s not over till it’s over and LionsBet offers them at odds of (2.15) for all three points.

For the Blaugrana, they are the ones sitting pretty at the top, five points clear of closest challengers Atletico Madrid. Barca are yet to taste defeat in the Spanish top flight this term and look good for victory in Madrid at odds of (3.05).

Draws have been prominent in this epic fixture in recent times and it’s (3.95) for that to happen at the Bernabeu.

Los Blancos could become the first team to score 400 goals in this fixture in all competitions and have the privilege of scoring the game’s opening goal at odds of (1.70).

Real have won their last two Clasicos by a two goal margin and this match going that way again is available at odds of (6.25).

Ernesto Valverde’s side have the chance to win three consecutive games at the Bernabeu for the first time in the club’s history. Either team winning is valued at (1.20).

Both teams have scored in 20 of their last 22 meetings and YES is priced at (1.35).

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in each of his last four games for Real Madrid in all competitions which is his best run this season. The club’s all-time leading scorer is tipped to score first at (3.05) and (1.35) anytime with LionsBet.

Paulinho has scored six goals in La Liga this season which is more than any midfielder and the exact number scored by Ronaldo and Karim Benzema combined. The Brazilian can be backed to score anytime at odds of (2.15).
