Our Spanish expert believes that the two European big-hitters will serve up a high-scoring encounter with at least three goals and neither team keeping a clean sheet
Carlo Ancelotti’s men drew their first game of the tournament 1-1 against Inter on Saturday before losing on penalties, while Roma went down 3-2 against Manchester United in their opener.
Bet365 make the European champions clear favourites at 61/100 (1.61) while Roma are offered at 4/1 (5.00) and the draw can be backed at 3/1 (4.00).
Despite it being a friendly played in the potentially sapping conditions of a Texan summer this should be competitive game between two attacking sides.
Roma showed plenty of ability going forward against United while Madrid are a constant attacking threat especially given the tremendous shape that Gareth Bale appears to be in.
Over 2.5 goals is priced at 8/15 (1.57) but much more tempting are the odds of 19/20 (1.95) for over 2.5 goals and both teams to score.
If, as expected, this game sees goals, then the selection should allow punters to practically double their investment.
