Barcelona vs Sociedad – Barca to extend eight game winning streak

| 11.12.2010

When Barcelona play at the Nou Camp it usually only means one thing, and at 1/10 to beat Real Sociedad the betting market suggests that this time it will be no different, Barcelona will win.

Despite Sociedad sitting sixth in the league and enjoying a season which is exceeding all expectations, the San Sebastien side are as big as 20/1 to beat Barcelona, a ridiculous price whichever way you look at it.

However it seems to be a case of how many Barcelona will score and Pep Guardiola’s side have scored 27 goals in last six league matches at a rate of almost 4.5 goals a game.

Over 4.5 goals is as short as 6/4 and a 5-0 Barca win is also ridiculously short at 9/1.

However, in their last four home matches with Sociedad at the Nou Camp, Barce only managed to score more than one goal on one occasion, and punters looking for a bit of value can back a 1-0 Barcelona win at 8/1, and under 1.5 goals at 15/2.

Real Zaragoza vs Real Madrid

With Barcelona looking good for the three points this weekend, Real Madrid will continue to play catch-up but Jose Mourinho’s side can be expected to take the three points in Zaragoza.

It’s been 13 games since Zaragoza last beat Real Madrid and since Javier Aguirre took over four games ago, they are yet to win.

It seems unlikely that Aguirre will guide his side to a victory over Real Madrid and Los Blancos are 1/4 to win away from home.

But away from home Real Madrid take a more cautious approach and have scored just eight goals in their seven games.

Under 2.5 goals is the pick of the market at 11/8 although a 1-0 Madrid win is also temptingly priced at 6/1.

A £10 double on Barcelona and Real Madrid winning 1-0 would return £630. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
