Real Madrid, 5 points clear in La Liga, are 9/5 with bet365 to snatch the advantage in the Copa del Rey quarter finals by beating Barcelona in the 1st leg.
With plenty of goals coming Mourinho’s way, Madrid backers will be happy with that but Barcelona, available at 13/8 with Betfred, are very unlikely to draw a blank, especially against a Madrid defence that has not kept a clean sheet at home in 7 games. Following a draw at 12/5 (Stan James) may be more prudent.
Goals may be the bet then. Boylesports are 4/5 for a game with 3 or more goals which seems generous considering it has happened every time at the Bernabeu this season while brave punters should perhaps look to the 2/1 at Ladbrokes for four or more or even the mighty 5/1 (William Hill) for five goals or more. The last three meetings have produced 13.
