Betting news: In-form Gareth Bale to continue scoring?


Real Madrid take on Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabeu later on today and the attacking trio of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale will want to continue their fine form in front of goal.

The trio have scored 12 goals between them in their last three competitive fixtures – against Sevilla and Rayo Vallecano in La Liga, and Juventus in the Champions League. In such devastating form, it will come as little surprise that Los Blancos are at evens to take the three points from the game. A draw is available at odds of around 8/1 while a win for the Basque outfit is at 17/1.

Welshman Bale is priced at 4/1 to open the scoring for the nine-time European Cup winners, and at around 4/5 to score at any point during the match.

Real Sociedad fans can be hopeful of getting a few goals though, with the Madrid defence shipping them freely in recent weeks. La Real can be found at 4/1 to score two or more goals at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Xabi Alonso will play against his boyhood club. The midfielder has recently made a return from injury, and although not a frequent goalscorer, he is at 15/1 to net against his old club.
