Barcelona vs. Real Madrid: Predictions, Madrid, Barcelona Battle to 2-2 Tie
It may seem outlandish to predict anything but a Barcelona victory, but Real Madrid have been in top form in recent matches.
Los Blancos are fresh off of a 5-0 dismantling of Tottenham in the Champions League and finally resembled the team most figured they’d see after all of Madrid’s high-profile purchases. They finally appear, at least, to be clicking on all cylinders and barely resemble the team that was thoroughly destroyed by the Catalans in November.
That said, Barcelona have absolutely looked like the side everyone has expected them to be. They currently lead La Liga by eight points (over Madrid) an appear poised to make their third Champions League final in four years.
Quite simply, while Barcelona is the superior side, Madrid have way too much to lose to allow another disastrous outing against their biggest rivals. Their coach, Jose Mourinho, is rumored to be headed back to England and the board will likely be unhappy with another second-place finish with how much cash they’ve injected into the product. That, and they’re playing this round in Los Blancos’ home, the Bernabeu.
