Real Madrid News and Form

This may not be an easy away game then for Real Madrid who suffered a loss in their last league away game. That was a 2-1 loss against Valencia. That means they are at W8 D2 L5 this season on their travels in the top flight. To be fair they had put together a five-match winning streak away from home in the league before the loss at Valencia. Real Madrid have averaged just shy of two goals per away games and 80% of their road fixtures going over 2.5 goals.

Their defence has been a mess though, which is a reason why a high percentage of their away games have been high scoring one. Real Madrid have managed just one away clean sheet this season which 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 in their last nine games combined, they have managed just one clean sheet. As a positive, they are on an eight-match scoring streak on their travels, opening the scoring though in just 7 of 15 on the road.
