IT’S TIME FOR EL CLÁSICO! Football free tips

The hype among football fans is reaching astronomic levels as we enter matchday 10 of La Liga, because it’s time for the most anticipated crunch clash the beautiful game has to offer – Barcelona versus Real Madrid! For fans of the Catalan club, this will be the first Clásico since Messi’s departure for PSG, while supporters from the capital will be feeling the absence of Sergio Ramos, who has also made tracks for Paris.

The start of this season couldn’t have been more different for the two sides. After grinding out a pair of unimpressive draws against Granada and Cadiz, Barca fans were calling for manager Ronald Koeman’s head on a platter, just as Karim Benzema had come into his own and, backed up by a resurgent Vinícius Junior, was leading Real to victory after victory. However, Real have hit the skids in their last two games, just as Barca are rising toward the top spots with their win against Valencia.

Blaugrana’s future attacking strategy seems to be centered around Ansu Fati, who has already scored twice since his return from injury. The issue in the meantime is that Ansu is still very young and Barcelona lacks a strong leader. Two potential candidates for this role could be Gerard Piqué and Sergio Busquets, but Piqué commits too many blunders in defence and Sergio doesn’t spend enough time on the pitch. Los Merengues, meanwhile, have a few options to fill the Ramos-shaped hole in their team, prime among which are Benzema and Modric, as well as the team’s nominal captain, Marcelo. In matches like this, where both teams have an incredible wealth of talent at their disposal, it can all come down to who has the more effective captain. Keep in mind that Real have won the last three Clásicos, whereas Barca have failed to win the last two meetings between these sides at Camp Nou.

The pragmatic Carlo Ancelotti also looks like the stronger manager when compared with his Dutch counterpart in the Catalan camp. For these reasons, we suggest taking a punt on a W2 bet at odds of 2.46.
