Real Madrid, Bilbao, Malaga make up magnificent 11/4 festive treble
Coral are helping you to get into the Christmas spirit with another superb Spanish special. Benefit from excellent 11/4 odds for Real Madrid, Athletic Bilbao and Malaga all to triumph.
Real Madrid v Celta Vigo
Carlo Ancelotti’s sensational side will be seeking revenge over courageous Celta Vigo, after they toppled the league leaders last season with a shocking 2-0 victory at the Balaidos.
Rampant Real’s winning run now stretches to an incredible 17 consecutive matches, helping them to take a two-point lead at the top of La Liga. Cristiano Ronaldo has, unsurprisingly, been at the forefront of Madrid’s success. The Portuguese superstar is 13/10 to score two or more, having netted a double in the 3-0 home win over their opponents last season.
Ancelotti’s great Galacticos have scored five goals in five of their previous seven home matches. World Cup star James Rodriguez bagged a double at the Bernabeu in their recent 5-0 Copa del Rey thrashing of Spanish third-tier side, Cornella. The clinical Colombian is 6/1 to open the scoring against Celta Vigo.
The Spanish outfit have welcomed deadly Jese Rodriguez back to their ranks, after nearly nine months out with injury, the 21-year-old netted his side’s fifth goal in the cup victory in a 9-1 aggregate win. The returning star is available at 7/5 to score again at any time this weekend.
Athletic Bilbao v Cordoba
Brilliant Bilbao and Cordoba clash with Ernesto Valverde’s valiant team, 2/5 odds-on favourites and sitting ninth in the La Liga table. The Basque Country boys are also on a raging run of form this season.
Despite a 1-1 draw with Alcoyano in their previous outing, Athletic managed two wins on the bounce, first beating Espanyol 3-1 before overcoming Getafe 2-1 away from home. They are available at 9/1 to secure another 2-1 result this weekend.
Cordoba lie rock-bottom of the Spanish league, having picked up only seven points in total, and face a strong home side who have not been beaten in six domestic league games. Bilbao are 17/20 to win to nil.
Malaga v Deportivo La Corunna
Deportivo haven’t beaten Malaga at home since May 2003, and were comprehensively taken apart last season in a 3-1 victory to La Liga’s seventh placed side.
In the reverse fixture last season, Ignacio Camacho was on hand to strike for Los Boquerones in a 1-1 draw between the sides.
High-flying Malaga look set to reap more misery on the away side, who are struggling in the relegation places at this crucial stage of the season.
