Our man at the Bernabeu believes the Blancos superstar can continue his superb goalscoring record on home turf on Saturday
Real Madrid’s remarkable start to the year has seen them set an impressive stat: six successive clean sheets for the first time since the 1994-95 season.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men have won every game they have played this year without conceding and the visit of Granada on Saturday provides them with the chance to extend both of those particular runs. Betway price Madrid at just 7/100 (1.07) for the win, while their opponents from the south of the country can be backed at a healthy 25/1 (26.00), with the draw available at 9/1 (10.00).
Madrid’s last league game saw them thrash Betis 5-0 and there was an ominous inevitability about the result. Against a Granada side sitting comfortably in the obscurity of mid-table, Madrid should have little trouble in recording another emphatic victory.
As ever, finding value in backing the Blancos at the Bernabeu against considerably inferior opposition is tough, so delving into the goalscorer markets may be the best option.
Betway’s price of 11/10 (2.10) for Cristiano Ronaldo to score two or more is one of the biggest around.
Ronaldo will be showing off his Ballon d’Or to the fans before kick-off and will be extremely motivated to mark his first home game since receiving the award with a big performance.
