This campaign was looking all gloom and doom for the Santiago Bernabeu outfit under former coach Julen Lopetegui, but the new man in charge has turned a corner with the team since he took over.
To put things into perspective, Real Madrid have won comprehensively every game they have played under Santiago Solari and look to have rediscovered their goalscoring form – winning matches by two or more goals under the new manager.
It’s difficult to look past a win for Los Blancos in this clash having also considered their impressive record against Jose Luis Mendilibar’s men.
The 33-time La Liga champions have only drawn once against this opposition in their previous eight meetings – winning the rest. It’s therefore not surprising to see them being tagged as clear favourites at odds of (1.50) with Bet365.
However, Los Armeros won’t be pushovers on Saturday as they will try to impress in front of their home fans – making for an interesting watch. A rare win for them is valued at bulky odds of (6.00) with the same betting company.
A no victor, no vanquished outcome at the end of 90 minutes is available at odds of (4.33).
