This La Liga clash might not be as straight forward to predict as it first seems with plucky Almeria boasting a decent record when facing up against the Spanish giants from Madrid, with the game being broadcast live streaming online.
Despite Carlo Ancelotti’s men really starting to hit top gear both domestically and in Europe, it’s going to take a leap of faith from punters to back the skinny visitors at 30/100.
Almeria have only lost one of their four league meetings with Real Madrid at the Juegos del Mediterraneo and can be backed at a juicy 10/1 to cause an upset and there has been significant money around for a home win.

However, despite this superb record against Madrid, their recent form does make it hard to see how they will stop the likes of Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Almeria have won just one of their seven home matches this term, scoring just seven goals and conceding 10, but have won their last three matches in La Liga. If the sensationally beat Madrid they would equal their best ever run of consecutive victories in La Liga.
If they are to find a victory from somewhere in front of their own fans, it’s most likely to come by a 1-0 score line, which can be backed at 18/1.
It’s always wise to keep abreast of the goalscorer markets when Madrid are in action and when you consider the form that Ronaldo is in currently, then investing in him to get on the scoresheet looks a safe punt.
Amazingly, the Portugal star’s hat-trick in midweek for his nation against Sweden was his 16th goal in his last 10 matches and has scored the winning goal five times in La Liga this season.
Don’t expect to get rich quick if backing him to find the net in this game though as the bookies are running for cover.
The former Manchester United man is just 2/1, yes 2/1 to score first, and unbelievably, just 5/1 to bag another hat-trick.
We have a feeling that this game may be the time that Bale really makes his mark on proceedings at Real Madrid.
The former Spurs winger has made five assists in the last three La Liga gameweeks; the most of any player in this period and is starting to really find his electric best on the wing for his new club.
He is probably a better value bet than Ronaldo at 13/2 to fire first.
