Real Madrid have the chance to close the gap on La Liga leaders Barcelona in tonight’s El Clasico encounter at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Jose Mourinho’s men are currently eight points behind their bitter rivals and have lost each of their last five league games against the Catalan outfit.
That stretch of defeats includes the 5-0 drubbing dished out by Barcelona at the Nou Camp last November, in which David Villa netted twice.
A bet on Barcelona to continue this impressive run over their opponents could be tempting, with bwin rating them as 13/10 favourites.
La Liga betting enthusiasts can get odds of 5/1 for the former Valencia striker to open the scoring tonight, meaning a successful £10 bet on Villa would return £60.
Pep Guardiola’s side have been on a high since losing to Arsenal in the first leg of their Champions League tie in February, going on to win ten of their next 11 matches.
However, Real Madrid also find themselves in fine form and Mourinho has a potent strikeforce to choose from, with Karim Benzema and long-term absentee Gonzalo Higuain both fit.
Odds of 9/5 for a Real victory are available at bwin, meaning a successful £10 stake on Los Merengues would return £28.
They head into the fixture off the back of three successive victories following their shock home defeat to mid-table Sporting Gijon, with this run including two Champions League wins over Tottenham Hotspur.
Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo proved influential against Spurs, scoring in both legs. The ex-Manchester United favourite has struck 28 times in La Liga this season, just one less than leading scorer Lionel Messi.
Punters can bet on either Ronaldo or Messi to net at any point in the match at 13/10.
Alternatively, Emmanuel Adebayor can be backed at 17/10, meaning a £10 bet on the former Arsenal and Manchester City forward could result in a return of £27.
