A succession of accomplished showings from the Real Madrid defence has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 4 from their past 6 fixtures in total. In that period, their forwards have scored 11. Let’s find out whether or not that trend will be sustained into this next match.

📰 Team News: Barcelona

Moussa Wagué (Patella rupture), Martin Braithwaite (Knee Injury), Eric García (Hamstring Injury) and Sergi Roberto (Hamstring Injury) will not be taking part for Barcelona manager Xavi Hernández.

📋 Team News: Real Madrid

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Mariano Díaz (Pelvis Injury) and Gareth Bale (Back trouble) will not be playing here.

🧠 Prediction

Our feeling is that Barcelona should get enough chances to score a goal against this Real Madrid lineup, although one goal probably won’t quite be enough to give them the result that they want.

We are therefore anticipating a narrow 1-2 winning margin for Real Madrid when the full-time whistle blows.
