With Cristiano Ronaldo set to start for Los Blancos against the Serie A side in the Trofeo Santiago Bernabeu, we are expecting plenty of goals tonight

Traditionally, the Trofeo Santiago Bernabeu was a pre-season game, a way of presenting the Real Madrid team to the fans ahead of the forthcoming campaign.

In recent years, however, transatlantic tours and European Super Cups have meant it has been difficult to squeeze the game in before La Liga gets underway.

Wednesday night therefore sees Real Madrid face Fiorentina, just a few days before their second league game of the season at home to Valencia. Fiorentina have been chosen as the opponents to commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of Real Madrid's second European Cup title which was claimed with a 2-0 win over the Viola in 1957.

Madrid have won each of the last eight editions of Bernabeu Trophy and dabblebet offer them at 1/7 (1.14) to record another victory, with Fiorentina priced at 12/1 (13.00) and the draw available at 5/1 (6.00).

What makes a home win even more likely is the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo who given his domestic suspension for the next three league games, is likely to feature for 90 minutes against the Italians.

Often, this fixture sees the manager give minutes to youth players from the Real Madrid academy although the starting XI is likely to be strong for Los Blancos with the likes of summer arrivals Jesus Vallejo, Dani Ceballos and Theo Hernandez  all set to play.

Expect an entertaining game with plenty of goals much like last year's encounter which saw Madrid beat Stade Reims 5-3, while 2013 saw them overcome Al Sadd 5-0 and 2012 produced an 8-0 win over Colombia's Millionarios.

Both teams to score is offered at 21/20 (2.05) while over 3.5 goals in the game looks tempting at 10/11 (1.91). A Real Madrid win and goals at both ends also looks like an excellent option priced a healthy-looking 17/10 (2.70).
