101GG Betting Tip:
Real Madrid will not have much to play for when they host Espanyol on Saturday at the closing round of La Liga. A recent slump in form has seen Real unable to bag a victory in 3 consecutive games and lose any faint hope of winning the domestic title.
The last time Madrid have gone more than 2 games without earning 3 points was in May 2009, exactly five years ago.
The Blancos should not have any problems finishing the season on a high note against Espanyol, a club with nothing left to play for and with the poor record of only one win in the last 10 attempts. The Catalans’ last win at the Bernabeu dates back to 1996, and it doesn’t seem like it is going to this upcoming Saturday.
