Barcelona vs Real Madrid on bet365 live streaming service
posted on 25-10-2018 by Gurusoccer
Another weekend with some fantastic games streaming live on bet365. The first 'El Clasico' of the season and some of Europe’s top domestic clashes to look out.
There’s only one way to start this week’s preview and that’s in Catalonia, as table toppers Barcelona host an out of form Real Madrid, in the first 'El Clasico' of the season. With Barcelona having confirmed Lionel Messi will miss the game with a fractured arm, this is the first time that neither him nor current Ballon d’Or holder, Cristiano Ronaldo, will have not featured in this match since 2007! Interestingly, there is only one player from the starting line-ups that day that remains in either squad and that is the Real captain, Sergio Ramos.
The Ronaldo v Messi debate has marred this fixture for over 10 years now and so it may be quite refreshing to see a battle between two teams, as opposed to 2 individuals. Barcelona go into the match as even money favourites, which some may see as a big price for a team that has only conceded one goal at home all season, against a team that have lost 3 of their last 4 domestic matches.
Elsewhere in Spain, Atletico Madrid will look to capitalise on the meeting between Barca and Real, and could go top of the table, should their city rivals cause an upset at the Camp Nou. Atletico’s resolute defence looks to have continued into this season, having only conceded 5 goals in their opening 9 league matches.
Moving across to America and the MLS, Wayne Rooney’s DC United play their last match of the regular season this weekend, following their victory on Sunday that secured a playoff spot. The former England captain has been a huge hit since his move across the pond, with 12 goals and 6 assists in his 19 matches.
Another former Man United forward looks to propel his side into the playoffs this weekend, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s LA Galaxy take on Houston Dynamo at the StubHub Centre. The Swede has scored 22 goals in his first season in the MLS and with rumours of a potential loan back to Old Trafford in their offseason, he’ll be looking to add another trophy to the many he’s secured in his illustrious career.
In addition to football, bet365 will also bring you a number of other sporting events, none more high profile than the next installment of Lebron James’ LA Lakers career, as they have matches against the Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets in the next two days.
There are some interesting matchups from the Eastern Conference to look forward to this weekend. The Boston Celtics travel to the New York Knicks, while the Cavs host the Atlanta Hawks in their first game without talismanic player LeBron James, who left the team this summer having delivered on his promise to bring a Championship to Cleveland.
Some highlights to look out for are as follows:
