Barcelona welcome Real Madrid to the Camp Nou on Saturday afternoon with both sides aiming to improve their respective recent scoring records in La Liga.
The Blaugrana, meanwhile, have gone 170 minutes without scoring in the Primera Division and this weekend’s Clasico could provide both teams with a chance to get back on track.
The most prolific scorer in the history of this fixture is the shortest-priced player to net at any time on Saturday with bet365 pricing Lionel Messi at 4/5 (1.80).or3/1 (4.00) to break the deadlock.
Messi’s sole goal in four La Liga appearances this season came from the penalty spot and the 33-year-old is yet to reach top gear after a turbulent summer.
Next in the anytime scorers market comes Karim Benzema at 5/4 (2.25), with the Frenchman having also netted just once this season.
No player in either squad has scored more this term than Ansu Fati and Barca’s teenage prodigy can be backed at 7/4 (2.75) to add to his total of three league strikes, while Antoine Griezmann is offered at the same price and Vinicius Junior can be backed at 12/5 (3.40).
Real will be desperate for Sergio Ramos to recover from a muscle injury to feature on Saturday, not just for his leadership skills but also because of his impressivegoalscoring ability.
The captain was the side’s second top scorer last term with 11 league goals, with six of those coming from the penalty spot.
Ramos trained with the rest of the squad on Friday morning and will hope to be involved in a fixture in which he boasts four goals.
Ramos is offered at 3/1 (4.00) to score at anytime which looks like a tempting option given not only his record but also the kind of game we might expect on Saturday.
This weekend’s Clasico could be a tighter affair which could be settled by a goal from a set-piece, where Ramos is extremely dangerous.
The Madrid captain also takes directfree-kicks and penalties, which only adds to his goal threat.
