18/03/2018 Kick Off:  7:45 pm Santiago Bernabéu V Predicted Score:3 - 1

Away Girona FC

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

As always, Cristiano Ronaldo! Any La Liga preview has to mention the world’s most famous player and he has scored two or more in seven out of his last 10 appearances. Ronaldo is 11/8 to score two or more and 9/2 for the hat-trick. If you want to take a chance on your football predictions, the correct 3-1 score and Ronaldo to bag anytime is 25/1.

2 We fancy:

With Real Madrid home games in La Liga it’s difficult to find lots of value and an accumulator looks the best way to go. In a multiple bet, back Real Madrid to win and both teams to score, Real Marid to score in both halves and Real Madrid to win both halves. Together they produce odds of just over 5/1, that’s one of the free football betting tips that could be worth backing.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Girona to repeat their heroic 2-1 over Real Madrid from earlier in the season won’t be top of people’s football score predictions for this weekend. In football you never know, and it is 40-1 for a 2-1 Girona win.

Real Madrid CF vs Girona FC Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Real Madrid Ronaldo football

Cristiano Ronaldo will grab the headlines no matter Real Madrid’s form

Real Madrid have found their rhythm in recent weeks and a Los Blancos win will be in the majority of fans’ football betting tips for the weekend.

The reigning European champions have won their last four home league games and scored a whopping 19 in the process. It is now 38 goals in 14 home games so far this season and their visitors Sunday have had their struggles on the road this season. A Real Madrid win here is as easy as La Liga predictions come and odds of 1/7 for a home win are proof of that.

Girona are having a superb first season in La Liga – they currently sit 7th in the table and are fighting for a Europa League spot. Qualifying for Europe would leave the team from Catalonia in dreamland. Its three wins from their last three games with an impressive away win at Villarreal included.

That away win was long overdue, it was Girona’s first since December and only their fourth on the road all season. Despite a win against their hosts earlier in the season the away side are 16/1 to win this one. The stats back up what a tough task they face and a Girona win wont feature in many football predictions this week.

Zidane’s team last drew a home game back in September and it is 13/2 for that to change against Girona. With Madrid’s form being patchy, by their standards, that could be one of the football betting tips for the weekend to keep an eye on.

Naturally it is Cristiano Ronaldo that is favourite to score first – the Portguese superstar is 9/4. Welsh wizard Gareth Bale follows him at 13/5. Cristhian Stuani is Girona’s top scorer with 15 goals so far this season, he is 14/1 to break the deadlock.

Predicted Score: Real Madrid CF 3 - 1 Girona FC
