The Betpal Football Bet of the Day comes from the Madrid derby, where Real entertain Atletico. With Real trailing their city rivals in the table, the stakes are high, and it promises to be an absorbing contest.

Football Bet of the Day Falcao

Match: Real Madrid v Ateltico Madrid

Bet of the Day: Lay Real Madrid

Best Odds: 1.48 at Betfair


After getting our fingers burnt in Spain last week taking on Barcelona, we are at it again with Real Madrid – but again, value is on offer. Real have a great home record, but their recent form is patchy enough to raise some doubts. They have already lost three times in La Liga, and drawn a further two. They have won just one of their last three, and three of their last six. A much bigger reason for opposing them however, is the form of the visitors, Atletico. They sit second in the table, a place above Real, they are 8 points better off, and have won eleven of their thirteen League games. After suffering their first domestic defeat and a Europa League loss with their second-string, they have rattled off five consecutive wins in all competitions, and have not conceded a single goal during that run. While Falcao has been making headlines with his goals, the defence has been quietly efficient. Real are unlikely to have it all their own way and look a little too short in the match odds market.
