Real Madrid mounted a remarkable comeback from 2-0 down at Villarreal to win 3-2 and avoid back-to-back defeats after they were beaten at Valencia. Las Palmas have lost their last four and so have dropped down to 12th, one place worse off than they ended up last term.
Real continue to look vulnerable at the back as they’ve kept only three clean sheets in their last 11 but they’re in excellent form at the Bernabeu, having won their last eight there whilst scoring 22 goals. They led at the break in six of those victories, though they only scored more than three times against lowly Granada.
Though Las Palmas have lost their last four, each of those defeats have been by just a single goal and having held Real to a draw in Gran Canaria, they’ll be hopeful of being competitive again here. They’ve lost by just a single goal at Sevilla, Villarreal and Atletico so they know how to make themselves difficult to break down and in the midst of a packed schedule, there’s a chance Real could rotate here. We’re siding with Las Palmas on the handicap.
