Barcelona Looking for 4th Win Over Real Madrid in 2023
In 2023, Barca really looks like Real Madrid’s kryptonite. So far this year, they’ve defeated them three times – 3-1 in the Spanish Super Cup, 2-1 in La Liga, and 1-0 in the first leg of the Copa Del Rey semifinal.
Barca have a 1-0 advantage from the first game, meaning that if they don’t lose on Wednesday, they will advance to the final of the Spanish Cup. That seems like an easy job for them, especially considering the fact that the game is played on their turf.
Spain’s largest stadium, Camp Nou, is where Xavi’s boys are undefeated since October 26, 2026, when Bayern Munich beat them. Most of the home games they’ve played in 2023, they won – they’re 6-1-0 this year at Camp Nou.
Los Blancos Know How to Upset the Odds
Real Madrid are trailing by double-figure points behind Barcelona in Spanish La Liga, meaning that it’s close to impossible that they’re going to retain the domestic title. They do, however, stand a chance to win other competitions. In the Champions League, for example, they’ve reached the quarterfinal stage, where they will play Chelsea.
In the Spanish Cup, they’re still in the game. In fact, if they knock Barcelona out of the competition, Los Blancos will take over the role of the No. 1 favorite for the trophy. This is because their opponent in the final would be either Osasuna or Athletic Bilbao.
So, the big question is whether Real Madrid can beat Barcelona for the first time in 2022? Bookies see Los Blancos are the underdogs in Wednesday’s game, but these guys know how to play when there’s a lot at stake. Just think of their 5-2 win over Liverpool on the road, in which they were 2-0 down at one point in the first half.
Barcelona vs. Real Madrid Prediction
If there’s a team that can end Barcelona’s superb run at Camp Nou, it’s Real Madrid. Carlo Ancelotti’s boys have everything needed to grab themselves a win on Wednesday. Whether it will be enough to advance to the next stage of Copa del Rey straight away or the game will see extra time, we can’t say for certain.
