It might only be a pre-season friendly, but a sell-out crowd is expected at the Olympic Stadium to see Spanish giants Real Madrid take on Hertha Berlin.
Jose Mourinho’s side have just completed a tour of the US as they carry out their preparations for the start of the Spanish Primera Liga, and will move on to Leicester after playing in the German capital.
Los Blancos have been untroubled by the sides they have faced in pre-season so far, and with odds of 7/25 to win another victory looks to be on the cards today.
Odds of a Hertha Berlin victory stand at 29/4 in bwin’s 3Way football betting market, with a draw priced at 4/1.
With the German side having played in the country’s second tier last season following relegation from the Bundesliga in 2010, there is likely to be a significant gulf in class between the two sides.
With this in mind, even a double-chance bet on Hertha Berlin to either win or draw their match against Real Madrid, which is available at odds of 5/2, seems unlikely to pay out.
Given Real conceded in two of the three friendly matches they played in the States, a better bet could be for both sides to score in the encounter at odds of 31/50.
A successful £25 free bet on Hertha Berlin and Real Madrid to score, available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account, would return £40.50.
Another viable alternative for punters looking for longer odds than those offered on a Real Madrid victory could be for there to be more than 2.5 goals in the match.
Odds of 17/50 are being offered by bwin on there being at least three goals, and this looks tempting given Real’s recent friendly history.
Los Blancos scored nine goals in three friendly matches in the US, with a 4-1 defeat of LA Galaxy followed up by 3-0 and 2-1 wins over Chivas Guadalajara and Philadelphia Union respectively.
