Real Madrid will be cursing their inability to fully capitalise on Atletico Madrid’s slip up at Levante last time out, but the fixture calendar has handed them a reprieve against the equally authentic bunch from Valladolid.
Carlo Ancelotti’s silverware-chasing side can be backed at a measly 13/50 to topple the team sitting second bottom in La Liga, with the victory that will move them two points shy of the summit regarded a mere formality according to the bwin odds gurus.
If this flimsy match-betting bounty fails to get the juices coursing and big-buck hunting through the hosts’ 31/4 sounds too much like hard work, then the firm’s esteemed double-triple money offer is just for you.
There’s plenty of good prices to be had in the goalscorer markets and, should you accurately select the player who will notch first in the piece, bwin will double, perhaps even treble, his odds to achieve either feat if the player finishes the match having struck two or three times.
Los Blancos’ squad is full to the point of bursting with some of the finest talents in world football and there’s any number of individuals who could help backers land a big payday, but Sergio Ramos probably isn’t the first name that springs to mind.
He rocks up at the Jose Zorrilla on as hot a scoring streak as any of his goalsmith teammates, though, having fired four in his last three, including a brace at the Allianz Arena against Bayern Munchen.
This double came after the former Sevilla star successfully picked the deadlock in Bavaria and should he repeat these antics here he can help punters pocket to the tune of 25/2, a price that doubles up to 25/1 if Ramos gets a brace.
Los Merengues’ stand-in skipper is available at 3’s to score at any time if betting on him to bag first appears too risky, though there’s no opportunity to enhance his price in this market.
