Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting: Catalans seek Clasico respite after Neymar departure

The world's biggest fixture tends to produce goals and we have found an attractive angle to back another high-scoring game at the Camp Nou

There can surely be no better way to kick off the season in Spain than having two Clasicos in the space of four days, with the winner receiving the first piece of domestic silverware of the year.

Of course, Real Madrid have already claimed one trophy in the 2017-18 campaign, with their UEFA Super Cup win over Manchester United on Tuesday evening ensuring a successful start for Zinedine Zidane and his men.

The Spanish Super Cup is perhpas less presitigous than it's European counterpart, but given the fact that Barcelona are the opponents, Sunday's first-leg will be equally as important - if not more so - for Real Madrid.

These two sides met in Miami a couple of weeks ago in a pre-season friendly which saw Neymar play his final game for the Blaugrana before his high-profile departure.

The tie in Miami finished 3-2 to Barcelona, which was the same scoreline the last time these sides met in a competitive game back in April at the Bernabeu, and the Catalans could dearly do with a victory to stem the negativity surrounding the club following Neymar's departure.

dabblebet offer Barca at evens (2.00) while Real Madrid are priced at 23/10 (3.30) and the draw is available at 3/1 (4.00).

Lionel Messi's dramatic late strike claimed that 3-2 win for Barca at the Bernabeu, yet at the Camp Nou Real Madrid have only lost once in their last four visit.

Los Blancos have also scored in each of their last 66 matches in all competitions and they will surely contribute to another high-scoring and exciting game. Over 2.5 goals is offered at just 4/9 (1.44) while both teams to score can be backed at 2/5 (1.40).

Of more interest, however, should be the price of 2/1 (3.00) for both teams to score in the first half, which has paid out in six of the last 10 Clasicos (inlcuding the meeting in Miami).

Another appealing option is backing both teams to score and either to win at 19/20 (1.95) which has proved the correct selection in 16 of the last 21 encounters between these two eternal rivals.
