The game widely recognised as the biggest in the world takes place this evening with Barcelona hosting Real Madrid in El Clasico.
Just a point divides the feuding pair at the La Liga summit, with Los Blaugrana slightly ahead of their capital-dwelling foes.
However, this margin will probably widen if the bwin odds moguls are to be believed, going 67/100 about victory for Luis Enrique’s men, next to the 15/4 that says Los Blancos will do the business and 33/100 on the draw.
If the match-betting smorgasbord can’t sate your punting cravings, we’ve sounded out a great-value alternative option to guide wager-makers along in their quest to snare a Clasico profit.
In order to land a 6/5 payday, simply back Real Madrid to win or draw in the double-chance stakes.
All of those who invest their £30 free bet for opening an account at bwin.com in the outcome will pocket £36 if Carlo Ancelotti’s men return unscathed from their Camp Nou venture, a feat one significant stat in particular says they’ll achieve.
Prior to this season, 17 Clasico renewals have heralded just five defeats for the away team.
Real have fallen just three times in Catalan country since a 5-0 demolition suffered in their first meeting under the command of Jose Mourinho.
This was the last time Cristiano Ronaldo and co failed to find the back of the Barca net, with an average of two goals scored across their last seven visits.
The hosts have only conceded as many once in their entire allocation of home matches this campaign, while four of their last seven wouldn’t have yielded victory if they’d shipped as many.
Real haven’t been the same imperious force they were at the start of the campaign of late, especially on the road, but they have still managed to rack up three wins to nil across their last half-dozen sojourns.
Also, in Ronaldo, Los Merengues have a forward who has scored seven in his last seven starts against this adversary so they can be relied upon to register here.
The Portuguese ace is 5/1 to score the opener here and the opportunity to back the Ballon d’Or holder at such a sizeable price is a rare one punters can’t afford to pass up.
