The Real Madrid vs Barcelona match will be played on Sunday, April 23, at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Madrid. Real Madrid is currently 1st on the table with 75 points, while Barcelona is 2nd on the table with 72 points at the moment. Real Madrid has a game in hand. With only six (seven) games to go, the El Classico might decide who will be the next Spanish football champion.


  • Real Madrid is currently in a series of 12 games without a defeat in all competitions. In 11 out of those 12 games, Real Madrid scored at least two goals.
  • Barcelona is not in a great form at the moment. They won only one out of their last 4 games in all competitions, and they recorded 2 defeats during that period. Also, Barcelona failed to score in all those games they didn't win.


In their previous 10 meetings, Real Madrid recorded 5 victories, Barcelona won 4 games, while one match ended in a draw. It is interesting that the last game was the one that concluded in a draw, and it is also the only game that ended with under 2.5 goals scored.


After they had eliminated Bayern Munich in Champions League, Real Madrid is one step closer to become the first club which defended the Champions League crown, but they will have to eliminate their big rivals, Atletico Madrid, first. In Primera, they have 3 points advantage over Barcelona and a game in hand. Besides, after El Classico, Real Madrid will face only one team from the upper half of the table - Sevilla. Therefore, if they stay undefeated against Barcelona, it is very hard to imagine the scenario where they won't win the title.

It is always hard to predict the outcome of one of the biggest football games in the world. Barcelona will have to attack Real from the beginning of the match, while Real will probably wait for the chance to hurt them on a counter-attack.
