Rayo Vallecano even though for all the praises; they haven’t really played against a formidable outfit to be honest barring Barcelona which they won of course and to make matters worse their head to head record against Real Madrid is something that they would like to forget as well. Real Madrid are steamrolling the opponents at will in this season and this match could be another goal fest for Benzema and co.

The odds for Karim Benzema to score according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.70.
