Barcelona vs Real Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
The Spanish Super Cup is at the doorstep, which gives the football fans the second El Classico in a still very young season. Only a few hours remain until referee Ricardo De Burgos, the two teams FC Barcelona and Real Madrid on the field asks. The first leg of the Super Cup will be held in the home of FC Barcelona, Camp Nou (capacity of 99,787 spectators). The first encounter between the two giants took place on July 30, within the framework of the Champions Cup in North America, which FC Barcelona had just won with 3-2.
After two successive championships (season 2014/15 and 2015/16), the arch rival, the white ballet, had to be given the lead, and the season humiliated as a second place finish. You could not forget this disgrace in the Champions League, but in the quarterfinals they were singing and playing against Juventus with an overall score of 0-3 (away 0-3 and home 0-0). Even the win of the Copa del Rey could not hide the fact that Barcelona were in the shadow of Real Madrid in the past season. A repetition of such a scenario should be avoided as much as possible during the upcoming season. The Catalans strengthened both on the defensive with Nelson Semedo (EUR 35 million from Benfica Lisbon), on the offensive with Deulofeu (EUR 12 million from Everton) and Munir (Leihende with Valencia). The preparations took place with four victories in five preparatory games, where opponents such as Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid were beaten.
But just a few days ago, a bad news came for every Barcelona fan, actually buying Paris Saint German Neymar by EUR 222 million from his contract, via the exit clause. To date, one or more suitable successors are still being sought. Due to the fact that Neymar (45 games, 20 goals and 27 templates) played a big part in the success of Barcelona last season, they are visibly weakened in the Super Cup final where no one is less than this year’s and last year’s Champions League winner, Real Madrid is waiting. At least, Neo coach Ernesto Valverde can take on almost all players, only Andre Gomes is questionable due to an assault.
Real Madrid :
For Real Madrid, the proverb “the one joy of the other suffering” was more than ever. While one of the season’s goalscores were missed during the archrival, the championship and the Champions League trophy were held in Madrid. The main contributor to the success of the white ballet was Cristiano Ronaldo, who proved his skills and talent once more in the hot league fixture (6 Ligatore in the last 4 seasons) and in the Champions League knockout phase. Particularly the performances in the quarterfinals game against Bayern, semi-finals against Atletico Madrid and in the final against Juventus are to be emphasized, where he has scored ten goals. In the summer transfer window, there are still no transfer workers from Madrid reported. There were only two investments in the future with the commitments of Dani Ceballos (EUR 16.5 million from Betis Sevilla) and Theo Hernandez (EUR 30 million from Atletico Madrid). With the sale of Alvaro Morata and Danilo both the necessary small money as well as the place in the squad would be available, in order to land another transfer coach. The preparation for the white ballet was not made to measure, but you lost all three games of the Champions Cup in North America. However, Real Madrid managed to secure the first title in the first season’s fixture, finishing just 2-1 against Manchester United (a couple of weeks later with 2-3), thanks to the goals of Casemiro and Isco, in the UEFA Super Cup final. Coach Zinedine Zidane has to do without Jesus Vallejo, who is threatened with muscular problems for both games. It is questionable whether Cristiano Ronaldo will get fit in time, after he has just entered the team training last week. He has already booked a short game in the UEFA Super Cup final against former club Manchester United.
