Our man at the Bernabeu Phil Kitromilides believes Madrid will win comfortably tonight, but won't manage to keep a clean sheet along the wayCristiano Ronaldo may be missing for Real Madrid with a slight knock picked up at the weekend, but the Spaniards remain overwhelming favorites for the visit of Galatasaray this evening.
Carlo Ancelotti's side are unbeaten in Europe at the Bernabeu for two and a half years and Betway price them at 3/10 (1.30) to record another victory.
Galatasaray meanwhile who were beaten 6-1 by Madrid in Istanbul in Matchweek one are offered at 9/1 (10.00).
It is fair to say that the Turks are not enjoying their most productive season, having lost the derby against Fenerbache two weeks ago to leave them languishing nine points behind their bitter rivals domestically.
In contrast, Real Madrid are in eye catching form, recording four successive league wins during which time they have netted 20 goals.
Keeping clean sheets has not however been one of Madrid's strong points, with the Whites managing just three in their 14 league matches this season.
Galatasaray have scored in their last two matches against the Spanish giants, making the price of 27/20 (2.35) for Madrid to win and both teams to score, highly appealing.
This bet has paid out 10 times already this season in matches involving Los Merengues and looks like an intelligent selection for tonight's game.
