Real Madrid Form & Team News 

After a worrying run of results in pre-season, Zidane's men delivered on the opening weekend. Los Blancos picked up a comfortable 3-1 victory away at Celta Vigo, despite having 10 men for nearly half of the match. Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and Lucas Vazquez got their names on the scoresheet for the team. 

One issue Zidane is facing at the moment is an ever-growing injury list. Summer signing Eden Hazard is unavailable for Saturday's game with an injury as is Marco Asensio. Luka Modric will also miss the game after being sent off against Celta Vigo. Gareth Bale started for Madrid last weekend and grabbed an assist and is likely to start again on Saturday. The Welshman had an uncomfortable summer in Madrid but will now feature for them in the coming weeks. 

Real Madrid are on good form at the Bernabeu, having won five of their last six matches at the stadium. They have also beat Valladolid in five of their last six encounters with the club. 

Real Madrid are unsurprisingly heavy favourites for the game. They are priced at 1.20 with bet365 to pick up their second victory of the season. This presents punters with little value. A win to nil for the club is better priced at 2.00.

Real Valladolid Form & Team News 

Valladolid picked up a late victory away at Real Betis on the opening weekend of the season. An 89th-minute goal from Oscar Plano secured a 2-1 victory for the Pucelanos after Betis had spent over 80 minutes playing with ten men. 

Valladolid's main aim this season will be staying in the division and Saturday's game will be a difficult one for them. They have been beaten comfortably by Real in their last four visits to the Bernabeu and will not fancy their chances too much this weekend. 

Sandro Ramirez will be missing from their starting 11 after sustaining an injury and will likely be replaced by Enes Unal. Unal will partner Sergi Guardiola up top with last week's match-winner Oscar Plano starting just behind. 

Valladolid are priced all the way out at 13.00 to pick up the victory, which should reflect the gap in quality between these two teams. 

Real Madrid vs Real Valladolid Analysis - Second straight win for Los Blancos 

Real Valladolid had a positive result last weekend but they didn't perform too well given that Betis had been reduced to ten men for the majority of the game. 

Madrid may have some injury problems but Zidane will want to make as strong a start as possible following Barcelona's slip-up away at Athletic Bilbao on the opening weekend. They looked confident against Celta Vigo last weekend and Valladolid should be easy pickings for them.

Real Madrid vs Real Valladolid Tips- Madrid win to nil

The winner market for this game presents very little value with Madrid priced at 1.20. Better odds are available in the Madrid win to Nil market, where Los Blancos are available at 2.00. 

Madrid should win the game quite comfortably and a correct score bet of 2-0 at 7.50 with bet365 is also worth a small outlay.
