The Real Madrid vs. Barcelona match will be played on Saturday, December 24, at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Madrid. Real Madrid is currently 4th on the table with 31 points, while Barcelona is currently 1st on the table with 42 points. Real Madrid has a game in hand. This is the derby match of La Liga round 17.


  • Real Madrid is currently in a series of ten victories in all competitions. However, their last two victories came in World Club Cup, where they won the title.
  • Barcelona is in a series of 24 matches without a defeat in all competitions. In fact, their last defeat came against Real Madrid in Super Cup.


In their last ten meetings, Real Madrid recorded five victories, Barcelona won four matches, while only one match ended in a draw. In eight out of those ten matches we saw over 2.5 goals. Real is in a series of two victories over Barcelona.


Real Madrid is 11 points behind Barcelona at the moment and if they fail to win the upcoming match they will have no chances to defend the title in La Liga whatsoever. In the last two weeks Real Madrid was away with FIFA World Club Cup tournament which they won, but it will be interesting to see them against Barcelona in the first La Liga match after the break. We don't know if they are prepared to face their arch rivals and Barcelona can take advantage of their fatigue, after a long flight from Abu Dhabi.
