    Cape Town - Close out 2017's La Liga action with a few tasty BET Boosts from BET.co.za! 

    Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique both to be carded - 9/2

    The relationship between these Spanish teammates has always been a tenuous one. While the rivalry between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is one sprinkled with mutual respect, Pique and Ramos simply don’t like each other. That tension usually boils over into something a bit more sinister when it comes to the Clasico, with Ramos’ red card in the last meeting a case in point. With so much at stake on Saturday’s match, there are bound to be a few more cards dished out.

    Paulinho to score and Barcelona to win - 13/2

    Few would’ve expected us to be heading into the first Clasico of the season expecting Paulinho to impact on the biggest of stages. Widely ridiculed following his move from Guangzhou Evergrande, Paulinho has become an integral part of this Barcelona side. Only Messi and Suarez have notched up more goals this season. With Madrid expected to be on the front foot, his box-to-box approach should see him presented with a chance on the counter. If he can take it this bet, and his signature, could look like a masterstroke.

    Cristiano Ronaldo to score first from outside the box - 15/1

    This one looks a bit of a long shot - excuse the pun. Ronaldo has failed to reach the heights of last season, but his brace in the 5-0 demolition of Sevilla might be the spark Madrid need to get their title challenge back on track. There’s no better player for the big occasion than the five-time Ballon D’or winner, whose career has been littered with wonder goals. Zinedine Zidane’s side have struggled for creativity this season and it might take a moment of magic from their talisman to break the deadlock on Saturday.
