Bet Of The Day October 24 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

We’re off to the La Liga for today’s best bet as Barcelona and Real Madrid collide in the El Clasico at Camp Nou.

One of the greatest showpieces in world football, the two juggernauts of Spanish football will once again square off for supremacy in the first El Clasico of the season.

Both teams aren’t the dominant powerhouses they were a decade or so ago, but we’re liking Real Madrid at odds of $2.40.

Barcelona have struggled considerably under Ronald Koeman this season and have only won four of their 11 matches in all competitions.

They are yet to win consecutive La Liga games this season and haven’t won three matches in a row in all competitions since April.

By contrast, Real Madrid have won seven of their 11 matches this term and are coming off a crushing 5-0 win over Shakhtar mid-week in the Champions League.

Real Madrid have won the last three El Clasico’s, scoring at least two goals in all of this victories – including a 3-1 triumph at Camp Nou last season.

Additionally, Real Madrid haven’t lost back-to-back La Liga games since the 2018/19 season and went down to Espanyol in a shock upset in their last outing.

Overall, Real Madrid are simply playing the better football this season. Barcelona have faltered and failed to score when coming up against top-tier opposition such as Bayern, Atletico and Benfica and Real obviously have the class to continue that trend.

We’re backing Real Madrid to win their fourth consecutive El Clasico and put Koeman under even more pressure on Sunday.
