Verdict: Real Madrid win & Under 5.5 goals
Best Odds: 17/20
Looking to reclaim their spot at the top of the La Liga table, Real Madrid will make the trip to Las Palmas on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Las Palmas might have found themselves at the heart of a domestic blip on either side of opening the New Year, Garcia Pimienta’s side have certainly claimed a welcomed boost over the past fortnight. Last seen putting in a rugged performance away at Rayo Vallecano as they eventually snatched a 2-0 win, the Yellows have secured back-to-back Bundesliga victories by an aggregate score of 5-0. Although the Canary Island-based outfit might have only made their top-flight return this season, some in Pimienta’s camp are dreaming of the chance to mount a genuine European charge in 2024. Opening Saturday’s showdown sat four points adrift of skyrocketing their way into the top-six, Las Palmas will now be hoping to find some crucial stability. However, facing what will be a heavyweight challenge this weekend, it should be highlighted that Los Amarillos have won just one of their previous four domestic contests in front of their own supporters.
Featuring for Congo at this month’s Africa Cup of Nations, Las Palmas will be unable to call upon 29-year-old midfielder Om
