Real Madrid hosts Barcelona in round 29 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Sunday, March 20th at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu (Madrid)
Real Madrid tops the Spanish LaLiga standings with 66 points after 28 rounds. Carlo Ancelotti’s team gained 20 victories and six draws and suffered two losses. Ten rounds before the end of the championship, the Whites have practically removed a point about who will get the title. They are ten points ahead of Sevilla and 15 points ahead of the bitter rivals from Catalonia. Real Madrid can afford to focus on the Champions League, where it has already advanced to the quarterfinals. On March 14, the Whites hammered Mallorca (0-3). Karim Benzema became the man of that match. The French striker scored a brace and made an assist to Vinicius Junior.

Barcelona is ranked third in the standings with 51 points after 27 matches. The Blue-Garnets gained 14 victories and nine draws and suffered four defeats. But due to a terrible start to the season and large-scale changes within the team, Barca doesn’t claim the champion’s title. The Catalans are faced with the task of gaining a foothold in the Champions League zone. In addition, they participate in the playoffs of the Europa League. Now Barca is on a streak of 12 games without defeats, and all the last four matches ended in victories. On March 13, the Catalans hammered Osasuna at Camp Nou (4-0).
Real Madrid and Barcelona have crossed paths two times since the beginning of this season. On October 24 last year, Ancelotti’s team dealt with the Catalans in the LaLiga home match (2-1), and on January 12 it was stronger in the Spanish Super Cup semifinals in Jeddah (3-2 after extra time). Along with Sevilla, Real Madrid is still undefeated at home in La Liga. Ancelotti’s coaching staff has almost a week to prepare for El Clasico, while Barcelona visited Galatasaray in the second leg of the UEL 1/8 finals in the midweek. On the other hand, Xavi’s team has been on a good run lately and has become stronger since the last game with Real Madrid. Predicting the outcome of the upcoming match is difficult, and it’s worth betting on production. Estadio Santiago Bernabéu will see two of the three best Spanish teams in terms of scoring. Real Madrid scored 59 goals in 28 matches, and Barça delivered 52 accurate shots in 27 games. The last El Clasico was remembered for its high number of goals. And we are likely to see another productive game with an exchange of goals scored.
