Real Madrid failed to win for the second Primera Division match in succession this weekend, losing to Athletic Bilbao in the Basque Country.
However, there has never been a better time to back them to overhaul a one-point deficit with Barcelona and claim back the title they yielded to Atletico Madrid in 2011/12.
Los Blancos’ loss saw them pushed out to 11/10 for the championship, with Barcelona 13/20 to win back the title having seized top spot with a 6-1 hammering of Rayo Vallecano at the Camp Nou.

It’s not just Real’s price that makes them a great bet right now either.
The key is their remaining fixtures, with no fewer than five of their outstanding home games coming against sides in the division’s bottom half.
Only Valencia average more points per game on home turf than Los Blancos’ 2.58 so they can expect to harness maximum rewards from those ventures.
Away from Santiago Bernabeu Madrid have the tough test of Barca next up, but they will have every reason to go to Catalunya with confidence, having beaten the Blaugrana on the last two occasions the sides have met.
If Real can get a result at Camp Nou, they will be well positioned to hold on to top spot for the remainder of the campaign as Luis Enrique’s men have two fixtures tougher than any of Los Merengues’ remaining games to contend with.
Valencia will be paying them a visit in a bid to follow up their 3-2 win in Barcelona last season, while they must travel to Atletico Madrid for the final road game of the campaign.
