Who will win El Clasíco?

After Lionel Messi’s dramatic off-season, when he seemed destined to leave before opting to stay for likely one more year, Barca have slowly turned their form around. They currently have 65 points from 20 wins, 5 draws and 4 defeats. They have closed the gap on Atletico to just a solitary point.

Real Madrid, who lost Gareth Bale to Tottenham during the transfer period, also had a poor start. Yet they too have struck form, sitting on 63 points for the season. So this is a massive clash for the title hopes of both giants. We’ll lean towards Real just shading this one at home and doing the double for 2020/21.
