Barcelona vs Real Madrid 2-3

Liverpool vs Manchester City 3-3

Real host Barcelona at the Bernabeu in a meeting between the top 2 teams in the La Liga with Madrid as the slight favorite. Both teams sit at 22 points with 7 wins and and a draw through 8 matchdays. Barcelona sit top of the table on an amazing +19 GD (20G, 1GA). The last 13 meetings between the rivals see them have 5 wins a piece and 3 draws. Barca must concentrate on the league because of near certain champions league elimination. Barca have injuries to Erikson and Araujo which will force them to field a weakened back line featuring Pique and likely Marcos Alonso. Madrid’s front line of Benzema, Vinicius, and Rodrygo/ Valverde should be able to expose Barca’s shaky back line. I’m anticipating an entertaining match with plenty of chances and cards created by both sides. I trust Madrid and Ancelotti to navigate this classico at home and defeat Barca in a thriller 3-2.

Manchester City welcome a Liverpool side that is struggling for form in the EPL. Liverpool sit in 11th place with 10 points from their first 8 games. A stunning 13 points back from 2nd place City. Manchester City has been in absolutely imperious form. They have scored 33 goals and conceded 10 in their first 9 EPL matches. They go from strength to strength with Haaland having an astounding 15 goals and Foden has quietly has 6. They have creativity and depth in every position and are healthy as can be. Liverpool are desperate to at least challenge for a champions league spot and have 2 games in hand on most of their competition. I believe Klopp and the pool will put in an inspired display against their rivals and will find a way to score. However, Liverpool have leaked so many this season that I cant see them keeping out City. I like a classic draw in this fixture that will be great for the neutral supporters.
