Real Madrid News and Form
So this could be tricky road test for Real Madrid. The Whites lost their last game away from home, a 2-1 defeat against Valencia. That left them with a W8 D2 L5 record this season on their travels in the top flight. They were on a five-match winning streak away from home before that slip against Valencia. In total Real Madrid have averaged just under two goals per away game this term, with 80% of their road fixtures going over 2.5 goals.
They have not been tight at the back which is why the percentage of high scoring games is up. Real Madrid have picked up just one clean sheet away from home this season. That was in a tight 1-0 win at bottom side Huesca. Both teams have scored in 73% of Real Madrid’s away games. Home and away combined they have taken one clean sheet in their last nine league games. They have scored in each of their last eight away from home but have opened the scoring in just 7 of their 15 away games.
