BARCELONA v REAL MADRID BETTING PREVIEW
Barcelona, who will be desperate to close the gap between themselves and Real Madrid, have now failed to win either of their last two La Liga outings, stuttering to a 0-0 draw with nine-man Malaga, before going on to snatch an equaliser to earn a point against Real Sociedad. They have dropped 12 points in their last 11 games and trail their opponents by 6 points.
The return of skipper Andres Iniesta from nearly two months absence will be a major boost for the Catalans. He's expected to initially sit on the bench as the midfield line is likely to be formed by Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets and Denis Suarez. The likes of Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano will start as centre back with Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba a full backs. Of course, the MSN trio Messi-Suarez-Neymar will spearhead the attack.
Real Madrid is enjoying a superb run of form as they are yet to lose a single match this season. Actually, the Blancos are undefeated in their last 25 matches. Zinedine Zidane's men have won four consecutive games and they know a victory would see them opening up a commanding nine-point lead over Barcelona. The last time these two teams met at the Camp Nou, Real Madrid defeated the host by 2-1, thanks to a late winner scored by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Gareth Bale will be on the sidelines until next April as he recently suffered an ankle injury and Lucas Vazquez will again replace the Welshman on the right-hand side of the attack. Dani Carvajal is expected tp be preferred to Danilo at right-back, with Raphael Varane expected to start in defence over Pepe. Casemiro is close to full fitness, but he is unlike to walk straight into the starting line-up. Zinedine Zidane will be also without the services of Toni Kroos while Raphael Varane is major doubt ahead of the trip to Camp Nou.
