Bale can help Real Madrid follow in Barcelona’s footsteps on Sunday night

La Liga-loving football fans will be in for a treat on Sunday night, with both Real and Atletico Madrid in action.

Title rivals Barcelona showed both just how to kick off the new season on Saturday when they smashed six goals past Real Betis.

Luis Suarez grabbed a hat-trick, Lionel Messi grabbed a brace and Arda Turan continued his goal scoring form having netted in midweek.

Real and Atletico will need to do well to match that, but they’ll be happy enough with a win when they take on Alaves and Sociedad respectively.

The guys here at Sportsbet.io think that’s exactly what will happen and will be backing the win double with the same firm.

That double pays around 2.20, which looks the best way to earn some spending money for the Champions League this week.

If you do have your mind on the value then it’s worth backing both in the -1 handicap market. It carries slightly more risk but pays 5.80.

Real will need to show they are more than just Ronaldo, Benzema and Bale if they are to win because two of the three are injured.

Only Bale is likely to be fit enough to play in the game, with Ronaldo still struggling to recover from the injury he picked up at Euro 2016.

Bale is 3.60 to score the first goal and could be the way to go for those looking to get involved in those markets.
