Our man at the Bernabeu believes los Blancos' No.7 can continue his superb scoring record on home turf on SaturdayReal Madrid's remarkable start to the year has seen them set an impressive stat: los Blancos have not kept six successive clean sheets since 1994-95.
The opening weeks to 2014 have brought six successive victories and six successive games without conceding and the visit of Granada on Saturday provides Carlo Ancelotti's men 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 midtable, Madrid should have little trouble in recording another emphatic victory.
As ever, finding value is tough in backing los Blancos at the Bernabeu against considerably inferior opposition, 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.
