Keep It Real At El Molinon

Live on Skysports 1: Sun 18.00 & 20.00: Real Madrid are 2/7 hot favs with William Hill to win in Gijon, so where’s the value?

Sporting Gijon have lost only one of their five home matches this season, that reverse coming against Valencia, but their defeat tally on their own patch is set to double as La Liga leaders Real Madrid arrive at El Molinon.

Jose Mourinho’s side however, are just 2/7 with William Hill to collect maximum points and 8/11 (Betfred) to prevail by at least two clear goals, so there’s little scope for profit when backing an away win. The rampant table toppers would be worth considering to rack up a few goals but again, as they’re just 1/3 with bet365 to bag two or more, it’s clear that the bookies are taking no chances.

Instead, counterintuitive as it seems when we’re convinced the visitors will triumph, we’re going for a wager involving the home team, who can get on the scoresheet here. In four of Madrid’s last five in the league, they’ve cruised to a comfortable victory but also let in a solitary goal. Two 6-1 wins, a 4-1 success and a 3-1 victory all preceded the 2-0 in last weekend’s local derby and then Mourinho’s men also shipped one in the midweek 5-1 Copa Del Rey mauling of Murcia.

Backing both teams to find the net is the eye catching bet then at even money with Ladbrokes.

After a flying start to the campaign, Valencia’s form has tailed off significantly, Los Che having taken just one point from their last four games and we’d be happy to oppose them in some way this weekend if they were up against a top half team. However, they face a patchy Getafe outfit at the Mestalla and subsequently they should get back to winning ways.

chalk Valencia up at a fairly tempting 4/6 but their current form means punters should be wary and given that the visitors’ ten games have produced 31 goals, 888Sport’s 7/10 marked against a tally of three or more here is a marginally better bet.

Recommended Bets:
Both teams to score in Sporting Gijon v Real Madrid – evens (Ladbrokes)
Valencia v Getafe to produce over 2.5 goals – 7/10 (888Sport)
