Something is happening with Real Madrid, they just couldn't keep their form on that high level and it's enough to have just few failures to loose title race, it's still early but after ten rounds they are at 4th position with 11 points less than Barcelona and one match less played, they must get back on the tracks now in order to keep up with biggest rivals in title race, in 11th round they will host relegation placed Las Palmas and must win, there is no doubt that they are favorites and can't avoid another failure, here shouldn't have a difficult task to win this game but you never know, in matches like this everything is possible.
In last match five days ago in Champions league hosts suffered defeat on their trip to London where were outplayed by Tottenham, still they probably will end up at second position in their group at least and reach knockout stage and will try to defend a title there for the third consecutive season but judging by their recent results that isn't very possible. Before that defeat against Tottenham they suffered another one in previous round of La Liga against Girona, guests are defending a title in Spain also and they must show some serious lift of their form to climb up at the table, here off course should be able to win. Zidane can't count on first goalkeeper Navas (6/0), defenders Varane (6/0), Carvajal (6/0), midfielder Kovacic (2/0) and forward Bale (5/2).
Las Palmas on the other hand are among relegation contenders now, only six points out of 10 rounds can't be enough for safe zone and they must show much more than so far to get out of there, they are coming to this duel with Real Madrid after were defeated at home by Deportivo while four days before that celebrated against same opponents in Spanish Cup, that was their only victory in last seven matches, with 8 goals scored weren't impressive in offense while conceded 25 and have worst defense in entire league, i really doubt that can avoid conceding of some goals tonight at Santiago Bernabeu.
In last duel with Real Madrid at this stadium in March they earned one point after great duel where six goals was scored, somehow they are always very motivated against top placed team. Opponents are playing offensive football and aren't some team which is great in defense and least what Las Palmas can do here is to score, victory here seems like impossible mission, in last four games against Real they got two draws and suffered two defeats, anyway they will try to surprise and i expect great duel. Visitors are coming here without injured midfielders Halilovic (3/0), Viera (10/1), forwards Tannane (6/0) and Tana (6/0).
Real Madrid must win here, they have really strong team and are for sure capable to achieve positive outcome against Las Palmas which are in relegation zone and were in some pretty bad form in first ten rounds, i'm sure that this will be an open game and both teams to score seems like a logical choice for this encounter.
