History between the two
Before jumping into the statistics, possibly the two greatest rivals in the sporting world are Real Madrid and Barcelona. Apart from sharing a total 51 Liga ACB trophies between them, it was last a surprising finish to last season’s league with Valencia Basket winning their first Spanish Championship title. On a run of 5 straight wins, Madrid are 8 points clear of Barcelona with only one loss.
Why a Bet on Barcelona could turn out for the better?
Online sportsbook sites in Spain have ranked 5/2 odds for Barcelona to win the championship. Those odds are justified by their performances of late but should the Catalan side regain their form, the tables could be turning. The one loss Real Madrid suffered came at home to Barcelona when the managed only 80 to Barca’s 84 points. The Catalans were victorious in that battle but will they win the war?
