Andres Iniesta said that it is vital that Barcelona beats rivals Real Madrid in the Clasico on Sunday so they can keep the Liga title, and pay per head sportsbooks can’t wait to see what will happen on the pitch when this game gets underway.
Price per head services can see that Barca, reigning champions, are third on the table, and behind Carlo Ancelotti’s players by four points, with 10 league matches left.
The Catalan giants face a very difficult task at the Bernabeu, where Real was able to clinch nine consecutive league victories.
In fact, pay per head sportsbooks saw that the last time that the league leaders lost in Spain’s top flight was in October’s reverse fixture.
Barcelona, in contrast to Real’s fine form, was stuttering lately, and had lost three out of six league matches before Sunday’s 7-0 thrashing of Osasuna at Camp Nou.
But midfielder Iniesta believes that his side will succeed, and said that the Osasuna defeat is proof that Barca are able to win, and pay per head sportsbooks don’t doubt their abilities on the pitch.
Speaking to Spanish radio station SER, he said: “The truth is that if we want to maximise our options of retaining the league title, we have to win at the Bernabeu.
“Madrid are the leaders and have some of the best players, but form doesn’t always count in these games.
“It’s always more positive to go into a game like Sunday’s after a good result – it helps you believe we can go there and win.”
Pay per head sportsbooks know that tensions between both sides often spill over in the hotly contested match, but Iniesta believes that on Sunday, both sets of players will keep themselves in check.

“They are always a difficult team to beat,” he added. “But I don’t think that we’ll see the same tension of a few years back on the pitch. It’ll be a war, but a footballing war and we mustn’t step over that line.”
