It’s an important season for Real Madrid as Zinedine Zidane aims to take his club back to the top of the Spanish La Liga and Europe. Here are our top Real Madrid v Valladolid betting tips.
A Closer Look
It has been a barren spell domestically for Blancos in recent times, but they have invested heavily in the squad during the summer as they look to wrestle top spot from long term rivals Barcelona.
Will this be their season? It’s anyone’s guess at this stage of the campaign but to give themselves the best possible chance they must make their home ground a fortress once again, beating the teams they should be beating and taking points off the likes of Barca and Atletico Madrid. Zidane was promised money to spend when he returned to the helm and he can’t say the board haven’t been true to their word second time around.
Too Hot to Touch
The players are in place and it’s now time for them to get down to business and grab the desired results on the field of play. Bookmakers are convinced they will get the job done on Saturday evening and have priced the locals as red hot favourites to live up top expectations. That will come as no surprise to those with their finger on the pulse of sports betting or the La Liga in general.
There’s not too much joy to be had in backing Real Madrid to win this match as most bookmakers, including bet365, have them priced at 2/11. That’s probably too small for a super single but it may do a job in stacked accumulators. Having said that, it makes much more appeal that the draw at 6/1 with Ladbrokes or risking a Valladolid win at 14/1 with the same firm, the latter being market best price.
