Live on Skysports 4: Sat 19.00 & 21.00: Barca head to Mallorca with another 3 points in mind as they look to hold off Real in La Liga.
Barcelona have dropped just two points on the road all season and remarkably have only conceded five times in eleven away matches. It’s hard to see patchy Mallorca halting their momentum at the Iberostar Stadium then and unsurprisingly bookies are treading carefully where Pep Guardiola’s men are concerned, 2/5 the best price available for a Barca triumph.
That’s one for big hitters but the visitors’ stout defending on their travels allied with the hosts’ lack of goals of late means there is value to be had with an away win ‘to nil’, which is chalked up at a healthy 13/10 by Coral. 888Sport meanwhile, price Barcelona at 6/1 to notch twice without reply.
Deportivo’s poor form doesn’t bode well ahead of the visit of Real Madrid to the Estadio Riazor and it’s Jose Mourinho’s men at 4/9 with William Hill, that should emerge three points better off. The home side have been shipping plenty of goals lately and although they have only lost twice on their own patch this term, they’ve done little recently to suggest they can repel Real, who are 13/8 at bet365 to find the net at least three times.
