Real Madrid and Las Palmas have a meeting scheduled this Sunday night at the Bernabéu, in another match of the 11th round of La Liga…
Real Madrid is currently in 3rd place of La Liga with 20 points, thanks to 6 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses.
This scenario of being 8 points behind leader Barcelona after 10 rounds, is something that not even the most pessimistic Madrid fans would expect.
A club of this dimension can’t have 19 goals scored and 9 goals conceded after 10 rounds, despite all the limitations they have had in terms of injuries on the roster.
The departures of players with some experience like Pepe, James or Morata might have some impact on this moment the Galacticos are going through, because they have a bench with a lot of quality but also a lot of inexperience.
For the reception to Las Palmas, the manager Zidane won’t be able to count with Bale, Carvajal, Kovacic, Navas and Zidane.
Las Palmas is in 18th place of La Liga with just 6 points, thanks to a record of 2 wins and 8 losses.
This team is the one who has the worst form on the last 5 matches, where they didn’t get a single point, only scoring 3 goals and conceding 17.
Their away record is pretty negative, having only scored in 1 out of the 5 away matches they played (at the Rosaleda, against Málaga).
The environment on the locker room shouldn’t therefore be the best, as we could see on the news this Friday, with some violence scenes happening on the team’s practice, more precisely between Remy and Tannane.
For the trip to the capital, the manager Pako Ayestaran shouldn’t be able to count with Halilovic and Jonathan Viera (he who is the best player in the team, in my opinion).
Real Madrid vs Las Palmas – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Cristiano Ronaldo (who even scored on the loss against Tottenham) has been doing pretty poorly on this edition of La Liga when it comes to finishing.
However, that has to end at some point for a player of this calibre.
The Portuguese star will face the worst defence in the league this Sunday night (25 goals conceded, conceding an average of 2.5 goals per match) which means this is the ideal scenario for him to get back to his goal scoring antics in the league.
The Merengues should win this match and score at least 3 goals, so I’m taking this combo bet that I consider having a lot of value.
