It’s time for El Clasico.
Saturday sees Real Madrid and Barcelona go head-to-head but with both teams looking out of sorts of late, could we be in for more of a snoozy siesta than a football fiesta?
Another Madrid setback here will ramp up the pressure on coach Zinedine Zidane, and new Barca manager Ronald Koeman would no doubt be happy to add to the Frenchman’s woes.
Read on to get our thoughts and top Odds Picks for the match.

|How to Watch||La Liga TV|
Our Top Odds Pick – Under 2.5 match goals – 6/5 at 888sport
Zizou is a man under pressure and a heavy defeat here could spell the end of his reign at Madrid.
Hot on the heels of last weekend’s defeat by Cadiz, Madrid then suffered a Champions League doing by Shakhtar Donetsk.
One positive for Zidane is that Barcelona have also looked below par recently so this match reeks of being a cagey affair.
Four of the last five clashes between these two have seen under 2.5 goals land and it looks a good call to hit once more.
Our Extra Pick – The Draw – 11/4 at Betfair
The two Spanish giants come into this following dismal performances last weekend and neither team will want to taste defeat against their bitter rivals.
If you offered both teams a draw right now we’d think they’d snap your hand off, and with goalscoring chances most likely at a premium, we’re also happy to side with the stalemate.
Long Shot – 1-1 Correct Score – 6/1 at Paddy Power
If a low scoring affair is on the cards, the 0-0 and 1-1 correct scores come into the reckoning.
It’s rare that these two battle out a 0-0 so we’re taking a chance on the 1-1 correct score this time around.
