The Spanish classic will be the most important in recent times

For the 27th date of the Santander League, the derby will be played between Barcelona and Real Madrid, who will face each other at the Camp Nou on Sunday, March 19.

For football lovers, it is a true dream to be able to see them face to face in the middle of a match that will be decisive. It is that the Catalans arrive as leaders and with a considerable advantage, but they cannot relax. In fact, the key will be to win this match and they both know it.

If Barcelona is left with the victory, it will escape and head towards the championship, but if it is the people of Madrid who manage to add three, it is clear that there will still be a tournament ahead.

Given such a previous size, everyone is waiting for what will happen, and obviously those who are in charge of sports forecasts are waiting to see if they can get their predictions right.

This is how Barcelona arrives

Xavi Hernández's team is going through a very good moment in local football. They have been leading the championship, have won the Super Cup and want to win the Copa del Rey.

It is true that at the continental level luck has not been on their side, but they know that they can crown a great season if they prevail in the classic against their lifelong rival.

The forecasts of the Spanish League expected performances up to what the Barcelona Football Club requires, and for now they are achieving it.

The "culés" will try to keep the three points and thus head towards a new championship title for their country, showing that they are back on their feet and that everything is ready to face a new football stage as happened in previous years.

This is how Real Madrid arrives

The "merengue" team is always fighting for the titles, although in this 2022/2023 it has unexpectedly left several points on the road and that means that it has not lived up to the predictions of the Spanish League, at least until this moment.

On Sunday he will have the opportunity to redeem himself and, if he wins, he will show that he is still planning to fight against an opponent who will do his best to eliminate him from the competition.

With this previous panorama, it could be said that Real Madrid will play its last card in this league match.

Background between both

Talking about what these two Spanish teams represent in football in their country and also worldwide, is practically unnecessary. Soccer fans know that mentioning these clubs refers to the largest and most significant.

Counting different tournaments, they have met a total of 252 times, of which Real Madrid won 101 and Barcelona won 99, in addition to 52 draws that complete the statistics.

Not only are those figures even. It should be noted that the people from Madrid scored 419 goals for their rival, while the "culés" scored 413. In addition, the Catalans won 62 times at home and the "merengues" did the same 65 times.

This makes it clear that it really is a very close derby, in which anything can happen, so sports forecasters will have a hard job ahead of them when deciding on a favourite.

The magnifying glass on...

Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, who is the competition's top scorer so far, and who will try to celebrate in the classic.

This distinguished footballer has shown that he is in force and that he has a lot to give to the team. That is why in a duel of such relevance all eyes will be on him.

It is that if this gunner has a chance of risk, the Barcelona fans will be able to celebrate and their rivals know that they will have to serve again from midfield.

The magnifying glass on...

The Frenchman Karim Benzemá, who is always up to par in these football events and shows, season after season, that converting into the classics is usually his specialty.

This footballer has a remarkable goalscoring ability and everyone knows it, but no one can stop him.

His presence on the pitch will represent a threat to Barcelona's defenders, and a lethal card for the "merengue" offense.

Sports bets

The people who usually play their chips, and also the fans of these teams, already analyze the sports bets that they will be able to place.

The sports betting sites also make their premonitions. Barcelona arrives as a favorite and its victory is quoted at 2.22, while Real Madrid's victory reaches 3.30. Meanwhile, a draw appears to be the least likely, and therefore most profitable, climbing to 3.70.

To all this we must add the possibility of choosing the result with which the first half will end, the exact score at the end of the game, which team will score first and other issues that will allow one to choose different plays that give good returns in case of hit.

That is why those who usually play their chips on these occasions will have a difficult task because what one can analyze in the previous one will be of little use once the ball starts rolling.
