Barcelona welcomes Real Madrid
Barcelona welcomes Real Madrid at the Camp Nou in a first leg from the Copa del Rey 1/2-finals. This clash is going to be played on Wednesday night. Let’s talk about it in our vip soccer bets for today.
Barcelona are the current holders of the trophy. Los Cules reached the 1/2-finals this season, thanks to their 6-1 win over Sevilla in the second leg during the 1/4-finals. Barca lost the first one with 0-2, but in the rematch they showed impressive strenght, tearing apart their opponent. Philippe Coutinho scored a brace for Barcelona, while Ivan Rakitic, Sergi Roberto, Luis Suarez and Leo Messi also scored for Ernesto Valverde’s side.
Meanwhile Real Madrid had to go through Girona in order to reach the 1/2-finals. Los Blancos did a good job, beating the Catalans in both games – 4-2 at home and 3-1 away. Karim Benzema scored a brace in the second leg, proving that he is in a fantastic form at the moment. Marcos Llorente also added one goal for the winning side.
When Barca and Real Madrid met for the last time in La Liga, things didn’t end well for the current European champions. Barca won this game at the Camp Nou with 5-1, even without their missing star Lionel Messi. Now it’s expected to see Messi back in the starting line-up, so for Real Madrid it’s going to be even more difficult.
Real Madrid are finding a good form lately. Santiago Solari’s boys are in a run of four consecutive wins in La Liga. In their last league game Los Blancos enjoyed a comfortable 3-0 win over Alaves at home, thanks to goals from Benzema, Vinicius and Mariano Diaz.
The games between Barcelona and Real Madrid are always offering much of spectacle. We don’t have any doubts that now it’s going to be the same. This is our conclusion in our vip soccer bets.
