Real Madrid vs Barcelona Betting Tips: Benzema set to strike in El Clasico
class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Lionel Messi is the favourite to find the back of the net in this historic La Liga clash but our tipster has found better value in the hosts' forward
La Liga’s top scoring side Barcelona visit the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano on Saturday evening to face the division’s second-most prolific outfit Real Madrid in the second Clasico of the season.
Lionel Messi is leading the scoring charts in the Spanish top-flight with 24 strikes, yet Los Blancos’ Karim Benzema is in superb form and has netted in each of his last six league encounters.
Real Madrid vs Barcelona Latest Goalscorer Odds
It is not a surprise to find that the two top scorers from each respective side are the shortest priced players to score on Saturday.
Messi is offered at 8/11 (1.73) with bet365 to score at anytime and the Argentine is the most prolific player in the history of this fixture, netting 26 times in 44 games against Real Madrid, although he has failed to score in each of the last six Clasicos.
Benzema, meanwhile, is priced at 6/5 (2.20) to net, although the Frenchman only has nine Clasico goals to his name with his last La Liga strike against the Catalans coming back in April 2016.
Elsewhere, Marco Asensio is enjoying the best scoring run of his career with goals in each of his last four matches in all competitions, including on Tuesday night in the Champions League against Liverpool.
The attacker can be backed at 9/4 (3.25) to find the back of the net while Vinicius Junior notched a brace against Jurgen Klopp’s men and can be backed at 7/1 (8.00) score first as he did in this fixture last season.
Barca had Ousmane Dembele to thank on Monday evening as the Frenchman scored a 90th minute winner at Camp Nou against Valladolid and the former Borussia Dortmund forward is priced at 7/4 (2.75) to score.
Real Madrid vs Barcelona Goalscorer Tips and Predictions
Backing Benzema to score at any time looks like an interesting option especially given the absence of Sergio Ramos.
The Real Madrid captain is usually on penalty and free-kick duty but with him missing, Benzema will have even more chances to extend his scoring run to seven consecutive league matches.
