Real Madrid haven’t hit their stride in La Liga this season; after a 0-0 draw with Real Sociedad, they narrowly beat Real Betis at the weekend. Their first home game is against Real Valladolid on Wednesday night and Zinedine Zidane must surely be looking at this as an opportunity to make a statement.
The champions will need a win having already slipped off the pace, but their visitors have a minimal chance of getting a result here.
In this one, they’ll have to be proficient in attack. Valladolid have only conceded two or more goals twice in six games. They don’t score many, though. A home win to nil makes sense at 7/5 with Bet365.
Why are we backing Real Madrid here?
Home advantage really should make them dominant, and there should be value in backing them to win both halves at 4/5 with Bet365.
Real’s squad depth means they shouldn’t have any problems at all. With that said, Fabian Orellana is a threat for the visitors.
What other markets are worth a look?
Take a look at the handicap markets. If Real Madrid can score early, then a -2 handicap could be on the cards at 15/8 with Bet365.
Karim Benzema is the man to back in a scorecast; if he scores first and Real win 3-1, you’ll get odds of 25/1 on Bet365.
