Having opened their league campaign with a disappointing home draw against Valencia, Real Madrid will be hoping their exceptional away form from last season continues, with Los Blancos making the short trip to the suburbs of the Spanish capital to face Getafe.
Sixteen wins, two draws and just one defeat was Madrid’s unprecedented away record in the previous campaign, and Jose Mourinho’s side can be backed at 33/100 to record their first win on the road of the 2012/2013 season. Getafe meanwhile, who have not beaten Madrid since 2008, are offered at 15/2 while the draw can be backed at 4/1.
It goes without saying that this is a match Madrid are expected to win, but rather than back them in the outright market, consider backing them to score three goals or more at 11/10.

|Real Sociedad win||£51.00||(31/20)|
|Real Madrid win||£49.00||(29/20)|
|Real Sociedad||0-0||Real Madrid||£290.00||(27/2)|
|Real Sociedad||1-0||Real Madrid||£270.00||(25/2)|
|Real Sociedad||1-1||Real Madrid||£150.00||(13/2)|
This bet has paid out in four of the last five meetings between the two sides, and last season proved to be a shrewd bet in matches involving Real Madrid as Los Blancos broke the record for the number of goals scored in a league season.
While Getafe are infinitely stronger at home than they are away, they are likely to struggle to contain a Madrid side who will be extremely motivated to get all three points, especially considering that Barcelona play before them, and thus Los Blancos could conceivably kick off the game five points behind their Catalan rivals.
This would surely act as a catalyst and backing them to score three goals
or more looks like being a shrewd investment at a very attractive price.
Recommended bet: Real Madrid to score three or more goals @ 11/10
