He has completed 31 dribbles at a 53% completion rate and created 27 chances.

Likely Winner:

The RM vs BAR Today Match Prediction is a very important one in terms of the La Liga title race. A win for Barcelona will take them to the top of the table with a 2-point lead. A win for Real will take them level on points with 1st placed Atletico Madrid. Both sides have a great defensive record as well with the home side conceding just 23 goals and the away side conceding just 24 goals. Real Madrid might slightly have the edge as they have been better of late. The Blaugrana will know that despite beating Valladolid, they weren’t as good as they should’ve while the Los Blancos comfortably saw off Liverpool.
