Las Palmas v Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Madrid’s form has improved markedly over the course of the past two months despite a recent league loss at Espanyol. They have gained 25 points from their last ten league games and netted an impressive 39 goals in the process.
Zinedine Zidane’s team also defeated Paris Saint-Germain in both legs of their Champions League last 16 tie and could yet savour more success this season.
Las Palmas have faced a tricky run of fixtures – suffering defeats to European-chasing trio Sevilla, Villarreal and Celta Vigo, while holding table toppers Barcelona.
Paco’s Jemez’s side are without a win in seven – a run in which they have scored just four goals – and while they are placed in 18th, they sit six points from safety.
The Spanish and European champions are favourites to win this clash at 3/10, while an unlikely home victory is available at 23/2 with the draw priced at 29/5.
A ‘double’ chance on a Las Palmas win or a draw is available at 31/10 while over 3.5 goals in the game is priced attractively at 11/14, with over 4.5 goals at 7/4.
One to watch for Las Palmas: Jonathan Calleri is the dangerman for the hosts with seven league goals to his name this season and is available to score anytime at 3/1 here.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Cristiano Ronaldo has netted 20 goals in his last 11 matches to take him up to 37 goals for the campaign. The Portuguese star is priced at 10/21 to score anytime in this fixture.
Long shot: Las Palmas have drawn three of their last five and recently held league leaders Barcelona to a 1-1 draw in Gran Canaria, with the same outcome in this game priced at 14/1.
