The last week has seen the Spanish title race come to life, can Real Madrid keep their narrow lead intact with a victory? Their late heroics against Villarreal were impressive, and they’ll be hoping to follow that up with a comfortable win over Las Palmas.
Real Madrid vs Las Palmas Predictions
Real Madrid looked to be cruising to the title earlier this season, but now their lead is looking shaky. Their defeat at Valencia means they’re just a point above Barcelona, although they do have a game in hand. Scheduling their postponed match against Celta is proving difficult, which causes them even more problems.
That late comeback against Villarreal just kept them ahead of Barca and Sevilla, but the pressure is certainly on them. Zinedine Zidane’s men need to keep winning, so they’ll be delighted to have Gareth Bale back. He sparked their fightback by pulling a goal back at Villarreal, and he scored against Espanyol in his first home game of 2017. We’re backing him to score here for our first Real Madrid vs Las Palmas prediction, which is priced at 5/6 with Coral.
We’re also backing Real Madrid to win and both teams to score for our second Real Madrid vs Las Palmas betting tip, which is 5/4 with William Hill. Given that Zidane’s side have one clean sheet in their last five matches, Las Palmas should have plenty of joy going forward. The visitors have scored 32 times already this season, and we’re backing them to score against a Madrid defence which has conceded in 70% of league matches.
Real Madrid vs Las Palmas Team News
Gareth Bale should return to the side from the start here, after an impressive comeback from injury. Raphael Varane is confirmed to miss Wednesday’s clash. Las Palmas are already heavy outsiders, so it doesn’t help that they’re without five players ahead of this trip.
Real Madrid Head to Head Stats
Real have won all three meetings between these two at the Bernabeu, scoring at least three goals in each. Las Palmas have found the net eight times in their last five matches against los Blancos, so we’re expecting them to find the net on Wednesday night.
Real Madrid v Las Palmas Betting Odds
As usual, Real are incredibly short at home. The hosts are priced at 1/6 to take the points on Wednesday. While we’re backing a win, we don’t think it’s worth taking those odds. Given the high scoring nature of this clash, we’re backing goals here. Las Palmas have conceded 24 times in 11 away league games, so we’re backing a 3-1 victory for the leaders, which is priced at 10/1 with Bet365.
