Skysports 1: Sat 19.00 & 21.00: Real Madrid can beat Santander to nil while Sevilla and Osasuna are set to draw (11/4, bet365).
Real Madrid are now 10 points clear in La Liga and welcome lowly Santander as BetVictor’s 1/10 favs. It is easy to assume a thrashing – Sportingbet chalking up 2/1 on a Madrid win by 4 or more – but a 10 point cushion and home advantage and only 3 days before a crucial Champions League game, Jose Mourinho may rest some legs.
Later in the evening, Sevilla are just 3/4 with Ladbrokes to beat Osasuna and without a win in 8 league games, the odds are surely too short.
Osasuna finally snapped their winless streak last week, against Barcelona of all teams, and must surely hold more credentials to take all the points, 9/2 with William Hill. However, with draws a prominent feature of Osasuna’s season, bet365′s 11/4 about a stalemate should be followed.
