The neutrals will be lining up to watch this clash as Real Madrid are playing some sublime stuff under Carlo Ancelotti at present and they are winning games in style.
Ancelotti struggled to find the balance between defence and attack during his first few months in charge, but since unleashing Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo into a system that suits their free-flowing style of play, Madrid have been awesome.
When you throw in the fact that Real have won their last six home league meetings with Valladolid, scoring 4.6 goals per game on average, then every punter looking to turn a profit should be focusing on a very comfortable Madrid victory.

men can be backed for the outright win at 1/8. Real Valladolid’s last victory in the Bernabeu in La Liga came on the final day of the 1999/00 season and they are trading at 20/1 to end that duck while the draw is a 7/1 chance.
their last four league games Madrid have averaged five goals a game, which makes the correct score of 4-0 (8/1) and 5-0 (16/1) very appealing at juicy looking odds.
Saying that, Real Valladolid do have a goal in them, having scored in 10 of their 14 league matches to date. With that in mind, it might be worth chancing the short odds of 8/11 for both teams to score as there are still significant worries about the state of the Madrid back four.
It’s almost impossible not to mention a certain Cristiano Ronaldo, who will play his 150th game for Madrid this weekend, when assessing the betting markets for this clash. He’ll go in search of his 163th goal in that period against a defence that have conceded more than one goal in eight of their 14 league games.
Ronaldo should be able to dine out against this defence. Although getting rich quick of backing him to score first at 17/10 with Paddy Power isn’t going to happen but a profit is still a profit as many shrewd gamblers will tell you.
Karim Benzema has scored in four consecutive league games (five goals) and he has never scored in five in a row for the Whites, but could be about to break that stat here.
He is playing supremely well linking up with Bale and Ronaldo through the centre and the 4/7 for him to score anytime may well be snapped up by the buying money brigade.
