Midweek dominance for Messi and Premier League Specials
El Clasico takes place on Wednesday evening and with Madrid currently decimated by injuries and suspensions, Barcelona are 6/5 with William Hill to win the match with the home side, Real Madrid, 19/10 and the draw 14/5.
The match not only sees these old rivals come face to face, but also sees the two best players in the world lock horns. William Hill are offering 8/13 that Lionel Messi scores more goals over the two legs of this tie than Ronaldo does, although the Portuguese maestro is 11/4 to come out on top.
There are rumours in Madrid that Jose Mourinho has fallen out with some of the big names at the Bernabeu and William Hill are offering 10/3 that Iker Casillas leaves Real Madrid by the time next season kicks off, although Mourinho is a much shorter 1/2 to have departed Real in the same time frame.
Casillas to be at Real Madrid on the first day of La Liga 13/14 season: 1/5 yes; 10/3 no
