IT was back to winning ways for Mark O’Haire’s (@MarkOHaire) European NAP last weekend. Staying in La Liga, can he bag us more profit?
Granada v Real Madrid | Saturday 15.00
Real Madrid took Clasico honours last weekend with a hugely impressive 3-1 victory over Barcelona. That win took Los Blancos to within touching distance of their bitter rivals at the top of La Liga and they’ll be expected to put more pressure on when they visit Granada.
It’s almost impossible to find value in Real but there is one way we can find a tasty bet from this match. BetVictor have made Over 1.5 first-half goals a very attractive 11/10 and that’s hugely appealing considering the last eight Madrid league fixtures have all seen two goals or more before the half-time interval.
Carlo Ancelotti was able to rest some of his superstars in midweek for their Copa del Rey game so you can be sure they’ll be fit and firing come Saturday afternoon. With Real smashing 23 goals in their last 7 league outings, it could be a long afternoon for out-of-form Granada.
The Andalusians have picked up just one point from a possible 18 and found themselves 3-0 down after 45 minutes when they came up against Barca three weeks ago. A repeat could certainly be on the cards at Los Cármenes.
