Barcelona v Real Madrid Preview, Primera La Liga, Saturday 26th October 2013

Barcelona have been in great form as of late and in the last 6 results have won 4 and drawn 2 and sit comfortably at the top of the Spanish Primera La Liga table on 25 points out of a maximum 27 and have an incredible +22 goal difference after just 9 games which is more than double of what Real Madrid have. But although they have high scoring games the last 2 results played have ended in a draw which includes this weeks Champions League game against AC Milan in which Messi rescued a point after 24 minutes after going down to an early 9th minute Robinho goal.

With the loss to Atletico Madrid now in the past the last 4 games have seen Real Madrid bounce back in style with 4 straight wins including this weeks impressive win over Italian Champions Juventus in which club favourite Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace in under the half hour mark. Llorente did manage to equalize in the 22nd minute after Ronaldo’s early 4th minute goal but when the Portuguese star was pulled down in the box he was there once more to convert from the spot to give them the lead.

Barcelona v Real Madrid Team News

Barcelona Team News:

Barcelona will be missing the Spanish left back Jordi Alba after picking up the injury against Ecuador back on the 14th of this month in which Spain went on to win 2 – 0. It is an injury he also had back in March so hopefully it wont be a reoccurring strain. Good news is that Lionel Messi is still fit after scoring an impressive 8 goals in 7 games making him the clubs expected top scorer above Pedro who himself has an nice tally of 5 goals in 8 games.

Real Madrid Team News:

With the main headlines on Welsh winger Gareth Bales hopefully being fit for Saturdays game against Barcelona it will be a long time coming for the player who signed this summer for a reported £95 million record deal. He has only mad 3 appearances this season after a few niggling injuries which have now hopefully passed as fans are very excited to see Bale play in the same side as Ronaldo in which the two could potentially terrorize and world class team including the likes of Barcelona.

Barcelona v Real Madrid Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Well regardless of the history between these two giants in the last couple of seasons the results have been dominated by Real Madrid and with the possible appearance on Gareth Bale that could also give them another edge if he is indeed fit enough to play like rumours have it. But then you have to look at how well Barcelona are playing and the fact their goal difference is incredible which clearly says there are few teams able to stand in their way right now. Real also have lost to 2nd placed Atletico Madrid in recent weeks which could indicate they could struggle against better opposition if the confidence is not right.

So with that said I feel it will be a Barcelona win but not by much, I can also see Real Madrid scoring 1 or 2 goals but still feel the home side will out score Madrid on the day. So I am going for a 2 – 1 win by Barcelona and also another prediction for Cristiano Ronaldo to score last.
