The first El Clasico of the 2016/17 season kicks off this Saturday at 15.15 UK time. Given current broadcasting rules this means the game will not be live on television for the UK but fear not though as the live action will be available to stream with bet365!
Real Madrid take the trip to Camp Nou in a bid to further extend their current 6 point lead to a 9 point lead with a win against Luis Enrique’s team. On the other hand, reigning La Liga champions, Barcelona will be looking to take advantage of home soil and in turn keep their title aspirations alive by closing in the gap between the two top-table teams despite only winning 3 of their last 6.
It’s with no doubt that Barcelona haven’t been at their best form in recent weeks and Madrid will be hoping this continues as they enter the fixture without Bale, after he suffered a bad ankle injury in last week’s Champions League game against Sporting Lisbon. Despite this, Barça are set to take the win at 17/20 with Madrid penned as outsiders currently at 11/4.
