Real Madrid vs Las Palmas: Preview and Predictions

Real Madrid vs Las Palmas
Primera Division
Date: 5th November 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid).

The reigning European and Spanish champions are officially in crisis after the mid-week’s Champions League failure at Wembley.

The victory over Las Palmas in the last match of the day on Sunday is thus a massive imperative for Zinedine Zidane and his men.

Real Madrid

The 3-1 loss to Spurs was the second defeat on the trot or Los Blancos who have previously fallen to Girona in La Liga.

Madrid have thus lost ground on Primera Division leaders as the gap between the arch-rivals has been extended to eight points with Barca’s win over Bilbao last time out.

Las Palmas

Luckily for Zidane, his team is about to take on the weakest defensive line in the league.

The Canaries will travel to the capital on the back of six straight defeats in Primera Division.

They have allowed at least three goals in each of the last four league outings and 12 in three straight losses to Celta Vigo, Villarreal and Deportivo La Coruna.

Real Madrid vs Las Palmas: Head to head

Real won five and drew two of their eight clashes with Las Palmas over the history, but the Canaries caused them plenty of troubles in the last term of La Liga.

The clash in Gran Canaria ended in a 2-2 draw, while Los Blancos barely managed a last-gasp draw at Santiago Bernabeu (3-3) in March this year.

Las Palmas is the perfect opponent for Real Madrid at the moment and we expect Los Blancos to shine and bag as many goals as possible to boost up the confidence and bounce back after unexpected losses.
