Real Valladolid make the short trip the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday for what looks like being a tough evening for the visitors.
Real Madrid have been in rampant scoring form of late netting 26 goals in their last six matches, and Valladolid will do well to keep the score down.
Indeed, even with 10 men for most of their midweek game against Galatasaray, Madrid still managed to score four times against the Turkish champions.
Cristiano Ronaldo missed that game, and will not be available for Saturday's clash, where Betway price a home win at 13/100 (1.13) with Valladolid offered at 16/1 (17.00).
The visitors though should cause Madrid little problems especially without their best player in Patrick Ebert, with the enigmatic German midfielder suspended for the game.
Valladolid's away form has been extremely poor winning just two out of 18 games on the road in 2013 (both of them at Rayo) and Madrid should be pretty comfortable.
As always finding some value in backing Madrid at home is tough but investing in them to win with a -2 goal handicap looks like a genuinely good bet at 17/20 (1.85).
This selection has paid out in each of Madrid's last three games and has an excellent chance of doing so again on ; Saturday night.
