Real Madrid v Barcelona tips – Ronaldo can inspire El Clasico win
Real Madrid are great value to win Saturday night’s El Clasico against Barcelona
October 24th, 2014
Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez will get their first taste of an El Clasico encounter on Saturday evening, although these players can make a positive impact in a match being watched all over the world.
Kroos was a World Cup winner with Germany in the summer, while Rodriguez was player of the tournament and they can combine with Cristiano Ronaldo to ensure that Los Merengues get an important three points.
Coral offer 7/5 about a ninth straight win for Real Madrid who will have noted that Barcelona were stunned 3-2 in the Champions League by Paris Saint-Germain a few weeks ago and could be vulnerable defensively in this game.
Real were at their devastating best when beating Liverpool 3-0 on Wednesday night where they took the game away from their English opponents in the first-half of the Champions League encounter before closing the game out after the interval.
Ronaldo is a 4/1 chance to score the first goal, with Winner offering this excellent price about the former Manchester United man finding the net first and he’s likely to be a threat throughout the contest.
Barcelona are sitting pretty at the top of La Liga although Luis Enrique’s side have had a fairly easy run of games thus far, with 888sport offering a best price 39/19 about the visitors claiming all three points in this game.
The draw can be backed at 14/5 with Sky Bet and we have seen lots of goals scored in previous encounters, something likely to be replicated here.
Luis Suarez could make his Barca debut although he’s unlikely to dislodge Lionel Messi and Neymar from the visitors’ attack as the Catalan side look to avoid defeat against their arch-rivals and keep them at arm’s length in the table.
