Barcelona 12/1 to complete a famous quadruple over arch rivals

| 16.04.2011

What a few weeks we’re in for in Spain as Barcelona and Real Madrid prepare for a run of four games which will not only define their seasons, but will also define whether or not Jose Mourinho remains in charge of Real next year.

Having humiliated Real Madrid 5-0 at the Nou Camp earlier in the season Barcelona have the upper hand entering the first of the four matches at the Bernabeu on Saturday and this is reflected in the Premiera Liga odds.

Barcelona are slightly favoured at 6/4 to hand Jose Mourinho only a third home league defeat in nine years and start this four game run with a huge psychological advantage.

Ladbrokes are offering a football specials betting market on either side winning all four games and Barcelona are available at 16/1 with Real Madrid a huge 50/1.

Barcelona are clearly the side to beat as they currently dominate La Liga at 1/66 to claim the league title, are the 10/11 favourites in the Champions League betting and the solid 8/15 favourites to lift the Copa del Rey.

The two Champions League legs represent Barcelona’s toughest ask of the four matches, and Barcelona are 6/4 to win the first one at the Bernabeu.

But Real Madrid have kept just one clean sheet in their last nine home games with Barcelona and should Barcelona win at the Bernabeu on Saturday, the odds on them winning all four games will shorten dramatically.

Jose Mourinho faces a real fight against the side that are considered the greatest team of this generation and he will be hoping that his strong home record continues on Saturday in the first of a difficult run of games.

A £10 stake on Barcelona winning all four games against Real Madrid would return £170. New customers sign up here to take advantage of a free football bet worth up to £30.
