Real Madrid vs Barcelona betting tips: Barca to end Real's Copa bid?

Ben Darvill 26 Feb 2019

Will it be Real Madrid or Barcelona celebrating victory in the semi-final second-leg between the two great sides on Wednesday? 

What better way to mark the second-legs of the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey than with El Clasico. Barcelona arrive at the Santiago Bernabeu with the scores standing at 1-1 after their home leg, and they know they have some work to do. Lucas Vasquez had given Real the lead at the Camp Nou inside 10 minutes before Malcolm struck in the 57th minute to make it 1-1. Despite Barca playing at home in the first-leg, they could not break through for a second time as they were held at arm’s length by Real.

Now, Madrid will fancy their chances of beating their fierce-rivals in the second-leg in order to make it through to the final, but we do not think they will be on the winning side this time. Barca have not lost in any of their last 13 games, drawing three times and winning 10. Real on the other hand have not been quite as prolific. While they have won six of their last seven, they have been wobbling at different points throughout the season, with the best example of this being their five game winless run during September 26 to October 28 where they lost four times and picked up just a single point. 

In this one, we think the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez will once again step up as they so often do in these big games, allowing Barcelona to win the match and consign their rivals to another defeat. 

Of course, there is something to be made of Real’s impressive return to form, and they do look like a genuinely good side once again. However, in the league, the last time the two met saw Barca hammer their opponents 5-1, and with another Clasico this weekend, the home side may have one eye on trying to claw back Barca’s advantage in the league, and we are therefore backing another Barca win with bookmaker Paddy Power.
