Real Madrid v Barcelona Betting Tips
You would think that the players of Real Madrid and Barcelona would get fed up of playing each other. Not only do they face off twice in La Liga each season, they regularly play each other in other competitions both domestically and on the continent. However, such is the size of this fixture that it’s taken seriously each and every time they play.
This weekend’s fixture in the International Champions Cup is far from the most important Clasico of the season to come but it still offers both teams the chance for a very welcome morale boost before their meeting in the Spanish Supercopa in August. For new Barcelona manager, Ernesto Valverde, it also provides a relatively low key introduction to the Clasico.
The Neymar Show
The Barcelona manager’s job may be one of the most coveted in world football but it’s a role which has been too much for some of the best coaches in the world. Valverde has already had to deal with the pressures of the job with Neymar being heavily linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The former Valencia and Athletic Bilbao manager has already seen his new charges beat both Juventus and Manchester United in the International Champions Cup and he’d dearly love another big win before flying back to Spain. However, that’s easier said than done against a team of Real Madrid’s calibre. Truth is, this could go either way so the best bet for the match could well be both teams to score which is 4/11 with Betfred.
By looking at Neymar’s demeanour whilst he’s been in America you wouldn’t know that he is the subject of what would turn into the biggest transfer of all time. He’s been relaxed with his teammates in training and has been right at the top of his game during his time on the pitch during Barcelona’s two International Champions Cup fixtures.
Neymar scored two brilliant goals against Juventus and followed that up with the winner in Barca’s 1-0 win over Man Utd. The future of the Brazilian forward is still up in the air but there’s no doubt about his ability to score against even the best opponents. Every player who takes to the field at the Hard Rock Stadium will want to shine but it’s Neymar who looks best placed to steal the show. So, have a bet on Neymar scoring for his third game in a row at 7/4 with Ladbrokes.
