Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Estadio de Gran Canaria will host a highly-anticipated Primera Division game between Las Palmas and Real Madrid. La Union Deportiva aim to build on back-to-back wins over Villarreal and Rayo Vallecano and they are surely capable of making life difficult for the Spanish giants. Julian Araujo remains on the sidelines through suspension, while both Omenuke Mfulu and Saul Coco are on international duty.
Los Blancos, on the other hand, were more than fortunate to beat Almeria 3-2 in their last league match, with Dani Carvajal scoring the winner deep into the stoppage time. As Las Palmas are tough to beat at home, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. To make things even worse for the away team, key midfielder Jude Bellingham misses out through suspension, with all David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Thibauth Courtois remaining in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Toni Kroos):
Toni Kroos is a Real Madrid midfielder who started playing for Bayern Munich II at senior level. He made 13 appearances for the reserve team and on 31 January, 2009 he joined Bayer Leverkusen on loan. He made his Bayer debut on 28 February, 2009, coming as a substitute in a 1-0 loss to Hannover.
The German midfielder scored ten goals in 43 league appearances with the BayArena outfit and in the summer of 2010 he returned to Bayern Munich.

In 2014, though, he decided to leave the club and the German superstar joined Real Madrid on a six-year-contract. Kroos won the 2015/2016 Champions League trophy with los Blancos and it has to be noted that he produced a thrilling performance in the title game against Atletico Madrid. In 2014 he clinched the FIFA World Cup trophy with Germany.
