Los Blancos are prolific on the road, while the hosts struggle to score, which means our La Liga expert believes Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. will have few problems tonight
Yet the hosts may be in the relegation zone but are unbeaten in their last 11 league games at the Estadio Jose Zorrilla, meaning that Madrid could in theory be in for a tricky test.
Nevertheless William Hill price them as the clear favourites at 1/6 (1.18) while Valladolid are offered at 14/1 (15.00) and the draw is available at 6/1 (7.00).
Madrid's form away from the Bernabeu has been generally extremely solid this season, with Carlo Ancelotti's men the top scorers in the division on the road.
Their opponents tonight however have struggled badly in front of goal, finding the back of the net just three times in their last six games.
The price therefore of 11/10 (2.10) for Madrid to win without conceding looks extremely tempting and even more so when considering the regularity with which is has paid out in recent
Indeed this has been the correct selection in four of Madrid's last five league games, with the side from the capital showing fantastic defensive solidity, stifling opponents infinitely more creative and dangerous than Valladolid.
Recently Madrid have won without conceding against both Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich in the Champions League as well as Real Sociedad, Osasuna and Almeria domestically.
Juan Ignacio Martinez's side are one of the lowest scoring outfits in La Liga and that is unlikely to change on Wednesday, so backing an away with the a clean sheet should allow punters to make a healthy looking profit.
