Barcelona vs Real Madrid Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Wednesday night sees Real Madrid travel to Camp Nou to face Barcelona in a Copa del Rey Clasico.
The two sides meet in the semi-final of the competition with the second leg to be played three weeks later.
Ernesto Valverde's men triumphed 5-1 when Los Blancos visited Barcelona in La Liga back in October and clear favourites for this week's game.

Latest odds 

Odds to victory for the Catalans at 8/11 (1.72) while Santiago Solari's men are 16/5 (4.20). Prior to October's home win, the previous two league Clasicos at the Camp Nou had been draws and another stalemate is offered at 3/1 (4.00).


Team news 

Lionel Messi picked up a thigh injury in Saturday's 2-2 draw against Valencia, and although it is not thought to be serious, February is an extremely busy month and Ernesto Valverde is not likely to risk him unless he is 100 per cent fit.

Elsewhere Barcelona remain without Rafinha and Samuel Umtiti, while Ousmane Dembele is doubtful despite returning to training.

Real Madrid have no major injury concerns heading into the clash, with Solari boasting a practically fully fit squad.

Preview 

Real Madrid come into the clash on their best run of form of the season, having won five successive games in all competitions for the first time in nearly a year and there is considerably less negativity around the club than there was a month ago.

Getting an away goal on Wednesday evening could be vital and Madrid have scored in each of their last 14 visits to Camp Nou in all competitions.

The last time Barcelona failed to score in a Clasico in their own stadium was in 2007 and generally this fixture produces plenty of goals at both ends.


Tips and predictions

Both teams to score has paid out in 24 of the last 27 Clasicos in all competitions and is offered at 4/7 (1.57). For higher odds, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is available at 4/5 (1.80) and has landed in 21 of the last 27 meetings.

Clasico doesn’t always impress me, but today there were no simulations, so you could only watch football
