Barcelona take on the visitors Real Madrid in the round 26 match of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Sunday, February 19th at Camp Nou (Barcelona).
Barcelona is confidently moving towards the championship, currently leading over the reigning champions by 9 points in the table. The advantage is very comfortable, and it's unlikely that Xavi wants to see this lead shrink. Although his team hasn't been scoring as many goals lately, they've been doing so consistently. In 25 rounds of La Liga, Barcelona has scored 47 goals. Only twice have they left the field without scoring a goal, and only once has this happened in their 12 home matches (in the very first round). I think the Catalans will score at least one goal against their historical rivals at the Camp Nou.

Real Madrid's attack looks even stronger this season than Barcelona's. In 25 La Liga matches, they have scored exactly 50 goals. Like their opponent, they've been scoring consistently this season. Only in three matches did Carlo's team leave the field without scoring a goal. Barcelona is always a more than formidable opponent for Los Blancos. Their motivation to win is already huge due to their position in the championship and their two previous lost head-to-head matches. Goals are needed for victories, and I think we can expect at least one precise strike from the visitors.
In El Clasico, it's always difficult to predict the outcome, regardless of the teams' standings, physical condition, and other factors. Both Real Madrid and Barcelona will give it their all in this battle, as it's too important and historic. Currently, the reigning champions are trailing Barcelona by 9 points in the table. Even in the event of a draw in this match, Carlo Ancelotti's team will have practically no chance of catching up to their opponent. The capital team needs to take risks and win to revive the intrigue in the fight for the title. I expect at least one goal from the visitors, while the hosts rightfully considered favorites, should also respond with at least one precise strike. They've already beaten Los Blancos twice in 2023, and another victory will practically settle the championship question. Based on everything mentioned above, I think there will be an exchange of goals in this match. The teams have already played each other three times this season - in the championship (1-3), the Spanish Super Cup (3-1), and the Copa del Rey (1-0). As you can see, the bet on Over 1.5 goals worked in two of these matches. I think it will work again now.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score – yes.
