Real Madrid have had a shocking season for their standards and currently are behind the 8 ball in La Liga. This is something which is not acceptable for a club that spends as much money as they do and although have had injuries, things must change soon. This weekend they will be at home and honestly it is a game that they should win. They will be up against Espanyol this weekend and they will be hoping to get an easy win over this Barcelona based club.

So as far as proceedings go, I simply don’t think that we can ever bet against Real Madrid not winning. This team may not be what they can be, but they are still a level above most La Liga teams and they should show this in this match. That being said, there is still a ton of value in this match so there is something to be excited about.

First, I think that betting on the goal line is something of worth. Real Madrid have netted 23 goals in their last 4 matched at home and this is something amazing since they are averaging close to 6 goals a game. That being said, over 2.5 goals is not giving a good price but we can take over 3.5 goals easily and this value there is a lot more value in it.

Also at home I think that betting with Real Madrid and a handicap is a good bet. The handicap is set at 3 goals which is quite high but judging on recent result I think a 4-0 or 5-0 result is very much possible. This is the more risky pick but it still has value so it might just be worth a punt. 

Pick:
Over 3.5 Goals
