Real Madrid good at keeping clean sheets against Gijon

| 13.11.2010

Real Madrid should have no trouble building on their already impressive start to the season as they travel to Sporting Gijon.

Gijon have only scored five goals in their last 12 La Liga matches with Real Madrid and unsurprisingly this has resulted in a distinct lack of victories.

Meanwhile, Gijon have proved especially liable to draw blanks as they have failed to find the target in their last five home clashes with Real Madrid.

Manuel Preciado’s team have taken just one point from the last eight league meetings between the two and are 9/1 to beat Real Madrid.

Real Madrid are on a five-game winning run in La Liga, while boasting the best attack in the division and the meanest defence.

It is 1/4 that Real Madrid beat Gijon and there is a strong chance that Cristiano Ronaldo will continue his hot scoring streak in the fixture.

Ronaldo already has 11 league goals this season and he is 5/2 to score the opener against Gijon.

The other televised Sunday La Liga game pits Valencia at home to Getafe and the hosts will fancy their chances of taking the three points.

Valencia have never lost a La Liga home game against the opposition and have won three of the last four meetings between the two.

However, their form has been patchy of late as after a strong start to the season, they have managed just a solitary point from their last four league games.

Valencia are 8/13 to beat Getafe, who could suffer their fourth defeat in five La Liga matches.

Getafe are 9/2 to land the spoils and potentially move into the top half of the league standings.

Real Madrid have drawn five of their last nine away games in all competitions. See the complete Sporting Gijon vs Real Madrid match betting odds market.
