Real Madrid travel to the Estadio Jose Zorilla on Saturday evening to face Real Valladolid with Zinedine Zidane’s men aiming for their fourth consecutive La Liga victory.
The hosts have won just twice at home all season, failing to keep a clean sheet in any of their 11 league matches in the own stadium and are priced at 6/1 (7.00) with bet365
Madrid, meanwhile, have been extremely strong on the road, losing just one of their last 17 matches and are also the top scorers away from home in La Liga.
The visitors can be backed at 8/15 (1.53) and the draw at 3/1 (4.00).
Captain Sergio Ramos remains sidelined for Los Blancos along with Eden Hazard, Dani Carvajal, Fede Valverde, Rodryo , Eder Militao, Marcelo and Alvaro Odriozola.
Valladolidare also without a number of important players, including Kiko Olivas, Pablo Hervias, Marcos Andre and Raul Carnero, while January signing Lucas Olaza is suspended.
After a fairly middling start to the campaign, the Spanishchampions have regained some of the solidity which helped them to the title last season -recording four clean sheets in their last seven league games.
They will be confident of extending that run against such goal-shy opponents this weekend, with Valladolid averaging less than one strike per game this term.
Indeed, not only are Valladolid poor in the final third, but they have also kept just two clean sheets all term and there should be plenty of interest in backing Real Madrid to claim a win.
Zidane’s side have scored at least twice in nine of their last 12 matches in La Liga and backing them to do so again on Saturday evening makes plenty of sense.
Real Madrid to win and score over 1.5 goals is offered at 5/6 (1.83) and looks like an excellent way to back the visitors at a healthy price.
Also worthy of consideration should be backing the champions to win to nil at 8/5 (2.60).
