Barcelona vs Real Madrid predictions and betting tips ahead of this Spanish Super Cup first leg, kicking off at 9pm on Sunday, 13th August 2017. Who will come out on top in the first Clasico of the season?
Having such a huge game early in the season is a great way to kick off the campaign in Spain. These two played out an entertaining friendly in Miami in the summer, but we expect bigger things in a competitive game with a trophy on the line.
There are few better spectacles in the sport than the Clasico, which has a trophy on the line this time. With both competing for pride here, expect a full bloodied affair with plenty of goals. These two have gone full throttle in recent clashes, and we expect plenty of goals. They both averaged around four goals per game last season, so we’re backing over 3.5 at evens with BetFred in our first Barcelona vs Real Madrid prediction.
Given that Real have lost just two of their last six trips to Barcelona, we see Los Blancos getting something here. We think the best way to go on this clash is to back the European champions at 6/4 with Bet365 on the Draw No Bet market. That’s a great price considering Barca have won one in their last four Clasicos at the Camp Nou. At that price, we’re adding Real DNB to our Barcelona vs Real Madrid predictions.
These two rotated heavily for their clash in Miami, but both take the Super Cup seriously and they should be back to full strength here.
In their two meetings in 2017, there have been a total of 10 goals scored between these two sides.
Given how these pair enjoy goals, we are going for a big bet to round off our Barcelona vs Real Madrid predictions. We’re already backing at least four in the game, but we see Real Madrid edging this one. A 3-2 win for the visitors seems like huge value here at 22/1 with William Hill.
