Spanish football betting fans have Saturday October 25th circled on their calendar since the announcement of La Liga’s 2014-2015 season fixture. This Saturday we will see the ever so anticipated match between Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The heated rivlary between these two teams will have a new chapter written, and soccer fans everywhere will be watching this exciting game. Once more superstar players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Iker Casillas, Luka Modric, will face Lionel Messi, Xavi Hernández and Andrés Iniesta.
So what can we expect in this Saturday’s game? The Liga has just started, and a win from either side can set a precedent and give them a good boost to reach the top of the table. So far Barcelona is on the top spot with 22 points so far, and Real Madrid is third with 18 points, one point less than second place Sevilla (19). Should Barcelona win, they will get a very important and considerable early lead at the top of the table, but a win from the home team, will narrow down the lead and make it very close. Spanish football betting enthusiasts can expect a great match.
This match will have that extra factor that will give the match that certain special flavor is the added value of the new signings both teams have. On one hand Real Madrid will have wonderkid James Rodríguez and recent World Cup Champ Tony Kroos. Barcelona will have Rakitic, and the most controversial footballer in the world today, Luis Suarez returning form a four month ban placed by FIFA during the last world cup. Suarez, despite all his controversies, is one of the world’s top strikers and should he see action this Saturday he could be that decisive factor on this game. And almost equal but opposite effect, is the absence due to injury of Real Madrid’s Garreth Bale. Although Real Madrid’s offense is filled with amazing talents, the Welshman will be missed on the attacking line.
Our Spanish football betting Pick for this Saturday’s game is that it will end up in a draw. However, we believe this game will end up with more than one goal scored per team. We predict an exciting 2-2.
