This fixture has produced plenty of goals over the last few years and we are backing another high-scoring encounter at the Bernabeu

Real Madrid's first home match of the La Liga season is against an opponent who generally make things tough for them at the Bernabeu.

Back in April, the eventual Spanish champions needed a late goal from Marcelo to record a 2-1 win over Valencia, while the previous season saw Los Blancos win by a 3-2 scoreline.

Indeed, those two victories are Madrid's only wins in their last seven matches home and away against Los Che, and Zinedine Zidane will be expecting another tough game from the side that ended his team's record unbeaten run when they met at Mestalla in January.

The draw, meanwhile, can be backed at 7/1 (8.00) and three of Valencia's last five league visits to Real Madrid's home have ended in draws.

Although it has been a while since Marcelino's side won in the Bernabeu, the side have a strong scoring record against the Spanish champions netting in all of the last nine matches in which they have faced Real Madrid. On each of those occasions, both teams to score has paid out and a repeat is offered at 7/10 (1.80).

Slightly more appealing is the price of 4/5 (1.80) for both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the game, a pick which has also proved a consistent winner in this fixture over the years.

This selection has also paid out in the last nine meetings between the sides, while proving a regular winner in league games at the Bernabeu last season where 11 matches saw both sides scoring and over three goals netted. 

The hosts have scored in 69 successive matches in all competitions, while Valencia last season scored in 15 of their 19 away games in La Liga, and given Los Che's strong record at the Bernabeu, another high-scoring fixture beckons on Sunday evening.
