Real Madrid vs. Barcelona: El Clasico Preview

Barcelona nosed past Real Madrid in the La Liga standings last weekend, setting up an El Clasico this Sunday which could decide a particularly keen title race between the two Spanish giants.

The first leg of the annual two-leg matchup was delayed due to political unrest last fall. It finally got an odd Wednesday time slot the week before Christmas and ended in a scoreless draw. The Real-hosted rematch should be more lively. However, Eden Hazard’s untimely broken fibula certainly puts a damper on things for the home fans.

Real Madrid vs. Barcelona in El Clasico: Recent form, summary of last match, odds, upcoming fixtures

Barcelona (last five La Liga matches: LWWWW) won going away 5-0 over Eibar last weekend for its fourth straight league win. Lionel Messi was brilliant with the first four goals for the new league leaders, with Arthur Melo slotting in a fifth goal as an afterthought. Then, in Champions League play on Tuesday, Barcelona managed an away draw to set up a Round of 16 concluding match back at Camp Nou.

Real Madrid (last five La Liga matches: WWWDL) lost to Levante 1-0 over the weekend. Then, just when it looked like it was going to recover with a midweek Champions League win over Manchester City, the Cityzens scored two late goals to take a lead in the Round of 16 matchup. And, to make matters worse, Sergio Ramos was awarded a late red card to limit options on the return leg.


According to the DraftKings Sportsbook oddsmakers (as of Feb. 28):

  • Real Madrid, +118 (wager $100 to win $118)
  • Barcelona, +210 (wager $100 to win $210)
  • Draw, +270 (wager $100 to win $270)
