Almeria - Real Madrid Betting Preview: Why the visitors should score at least three times

Our man in Spain, Phil Kitromilides, is backing Carlo Ancelotti's side to continue their excellent recent scoring run on Saturday
Real Madrid make the trip to the Andalusian city of Almeria on Saturday night hoping to continue where they left off before the international break.

The Whites scored 15 goals in their last three league matches and while the odd question remains about their defensive organisation, up front they look deadly.

Paddy Power price a win for Carlo Ancelotti's men at just 3/10 (1.30) while their hosts are offered at 8/1 (9.00).

Madrid's record of just two clean sheets all season, coupled with Almeria's solid scoring form means that both teams to score is offered at just 4/7 (1.57), a price too short for our consideration.

Instead backing Madrid to continue their impressive scoring record by netting over 2.5 goals looks a much better option offered at 4/5 (1.80).

This selection has already paid out seven times in competitive fixtures involving Real Madrid this season as well as in one of their last three league matches.

Furthermore, Madrid have fond memories of this fixture having scored a staggering eight goals the last time that the two sides met.

With Cristiano Ronaldo maintaining his relentless scoring form, as well as Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema enjoying their best form of the season, there is every chance that Madrid can score three goals against one the division's weakest sides.
