Barcelona led twice in the recent Clasico match but were unable to get over the line, getting undone by a Jude Bellingham late winner at the Santiago Bernabeu. Despite this defeat, Xavi will have been encouraged by the overall performance which saw the team register six shots on target, with the Catalan side also dominating possession.

They also had eight corners to Real Madrid’s two although there have now been seven goals conceded in the past two encounters. It should be noted that there were previously six successive victories and there was an element of misfortune when it came to their Champions League reverse against PSG.

Valencia were able to hold Barcelona to a 1-1 draw earlier in the campaign, with Ruben Baraja’s side having avoided defeat in 50% of their away matches this season. Before a recent 2-1 home defeat against Real Betis, there were successive victories away to Granada and Osasuna along with a clean sheet against Mallorca.

Barcelona are likely to be a popular accumulator selection when it comes to Monday’s clash and we might see Robert Lewandowski bolster his goal tally. While the bookmakers anticipate that there will be Over 2.5 Goals in the game, the majority are anticipated to come from Barca considering that BTTS No is trading at a short price.
