The first El Clasico of this season takes place on Sunday night as Barcelona welcomes Real Madrid to Camp Nou.
This time both teams missed the title last season, beaten by Atletico Madrid. Also, after the loss against Atletico Madrid, Barcelona is no longer the favorite for the Spanish title, but their victory over Valencia is a big boost ahead of this crucial game against the biggest rivals. Real Madrid is currently in second place, while Barcelona struggles at seventh place. After all, maintaining a high standard without Messi doesn’t look easy. With Messi and his record 18 league goals in El Clasico gone, Benzema is now the leading active scorer in the rivalry with 7 goals total.
On the other hand, Real Madrid lost the first place in the table after failing to impress in a 2-1 loss to Espanyol in their last league match. Real Madrid are eager to make amends for the shocking defeat. El Clasico has always been one of the most unpredictable game. This time, Real Madrid looks like the stronger team, while Barcelona have been going through the toughest of times in their history. An early-season win over their main rival would be a great boost for the Catalans. This promises to be a thrilling contest on Sunday.
According to our predictions, Real Madrid is the favorite to win this rivalry.
