Valladolid vs Real Madrid Prediction
Real Madrid will be confident after their stellar display at home in the last La Liga match. Visiting on the back of a win in the league will improve the morale of the players. Los Blancos have been caught in injury, and Carvajal will probably miss the next clash after getting substituted in the first half because of injury.
It will be interesting to see how Zidane will work out the playing eleven with the available players on the bench. Another problem lies in the Galacticos having to depend on defenders to score goals. Benzema is in excellent form in the league and pairing up with Vinicius, he can be a threat to the opponent’s defense.
The away win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters. Regarding the poor form of Valladolid with their winless streak, the host is not likely to make an impact on the game. Besides, the tip for under 3.5 goals has been apt for most of Real Madrid games this season.
