Despite their poor recent form, Real Madrid should beat Las Palmas fairly comfortably. They are priced at 1.08 with bet365. Below you can read the reasons for our Real Madrid vs Las Palmas predictions.
We expect Real Madrid to Win 5-1 at 13.00 with bet365
Both teams need the win to end their respective slumps in form. Madrid have lost their last two, whereas Las Palmas are on a run of six successive defeats in La Liga.
Despite two arguably deserved defeats to Girona and Tottenham, you could expect los Blancos to win comfortably here given they at home and have much more quality than the visitors.
Zinedine Zidane will see this as the perfect opportunity to restore confidence, and the bookmakers think the same as they price a Madrid win at 1.08 with bet365.
One player who needs a confidence boost is Cristiano Ronaldo – not something you say often about a player who is expected to win his fifth Ballon d’Or title in January.
The 32 year-old scored a late consolation goal against Tottenham on Wednesday, but has just 1 league goal from six matches so far this season.
However, at some point we expect the floodgates to open for him, and he will be licking his lips over the possibility of coming up against an out of form Las Palmas team.
Real Madrid have lost their last two matches, which for a club of their size is considered a crisis especially as they now trail league leaders Barcelona by 8 points. However, compared to Las Palmas their situation doesn’t seem so bad. The visitors make the trip to Madrid on a run of 6 successive La Liga defeats.
Crisis mode is in full swing at the Bernabeu, after los Blancos followed up last weekend’s shock loss at newly promoted Girona with a 3-1 defeat to Tottenham in the Champions League. However, this is the perfect match for them to regain some form.
Real Madrid Form: LLWWDW
As mentioned, Las Palmas are in the relegation zone having lost their last 6 La Liga matches. New manager Pako Ayesteran has not had the desired effect and is already under serious pressure. Their only recent win came in the Copa del Rey last week, when they beat Deportivo 4-1 away.
Las Palmas Form: LWLLLL
Madrid and Las Palmas have played eight times before, with los Blancos winning on five of those occasions. Last season Las Palmas managed a 3-3 draw at the Bernabeu, but will feel that they should have won as two late goals from Cristiano Ronaldo saw Madrid fight back from 3-1 down.
Zidane still has a number of players injured. Gareth Bale, Dani Carvajal and Mateo Kovacic are all out, whereas Raphael Varane and Keylor Navas are listed as doubtful. Las Palmas will be without Alen Halilovic and Oussama Tannane.
Home Win: Real Madrid to Win at 1.08 with bet365
