Real Madrid have not given up on their ambition to defend their La Liga title despite being several points behind league leaders, Barcelona
Estadio de la Romareda will be the battle ground when red hot Real Madrid pays a visit to Zaragoza in a Liga match, where they will resume their quest for the league title.
Los Blanquillos, the hosts who are yet to win a league match in 2013 are on a run of twelve winless games placing then as sure candidates for relegation will have to the impossible by stopping Jose Mourinho’s men who look unstoppable with seven wins from seven games in the League.
Although Jose Mourinho may likely rotate his team due to their crucial Champions League game on Wednesday, this has not stopped Ladbrokes from tipping them as favorites. This online bookmaker believes Madrid will come away with all three points at 4/11 (1.36), a quote that is mouth watering.
Manolo Jimenez's men who have had a rather terrible season so far will be hoping to avoid the drop to the Segunda division, and in view of this, they are backed at a long odds of 13/2 (7.50) to secure maximum points at home.
For those who believe Madrid’s eight-match unbeaten run can be halted and feel Zaragoza can match the La Blancos strength for strength, 4/1 (5.00) is available for a draw.
For the goal poachers, Cristiano Ronaldo is favoured at 15/8 (2.87) to score first on Saturday night, while his teammate Gonzalo Higuain is backed at 7/2 (4.50) to score first as Karim Benzema and Alvaro Morata are both placed at 9/2 (5.50) to get the curtain raiser.
Nevertheless, expect this match to be a little less frenetic than others, and the price of 8/5 (2.60) for Real Madrid to win and under 3.5 goals looks tempting.
