Real Betis and Real Madrid will lock horns with each other in La Liga this coming weekend. The match between Los Verdiblancos and Los Blancos will be held at the Estadio Benito Villamarín and is scheduled to kick off at 3:15 pm UK time on Saturday.

Real Betis

Real Betis are one of the biggest and most well-supported clubs in Spain and are doing quite well at the moment. Manuel Pellegrini’s side ended up as high as sixth in the La Liga table last season, and they could do even better this time around.

Betis are seventh in the La Liga table at the moment with 25 points from 15 matches. They are six points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid. A top-four finish for Los Verderones this season is very much possible.

El Glorioso will take on Villanovense away from home in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday evening. They played out a goalless draw with Almeria away from home in La Liga this past weekend. It followed a 1-0 defeat to Sparta Prague away from home in UEFA Europa League Group C.

Team News:

Hector Bellerin is suspended for the match. Real Betis are likely to line up in a 4-4-1-1 formation. Rui Silva will be in goal for the home team. German Pezzella and Chadi Riad will be the two central defenders. Assane Diao, Guido Rodriguez, Marc Roca and Ayoze Perez will be the four midfielders. Willian Jose will lead the line for Betis and will have Isco behind him in attacking midfield.

Real Madrid

Real Madrid are arguably the biggest club in the world and are aiming to win the La Liga title as as well as the UEFA Champions League this season. Carlo Ancelotti’s side are doing well in both competitions, and things are looking very well for Los Blancos.

Madrid are at the top of the La Liga table at the moment with 38 points from 15 matches. Los Blancos are level on points with Girona in second.  Madrid’s bitter rivals Barcelona, who won the La Liga title last season, are third with 34 points from 15 games.

Ancelotti’s side will head into the La Liga match against Real Betis on the back of a 2-0 victory over Granada at the Santiago Bernabeu in the league. It came after a 4-2 victory over Napoli at home in UEFA Champions League Group C.

Team News:

Real Madrid are likely to line up in a 4-4-2 formation. Andriy Lunin will be in goal for Los Blancos. Dani Carvajal, Antonio Rudiger, David Alaba and Ferland Mendy will be the four defenders. Brahim Diaz, Federico Valverde, Toni Kroos and Jude Bellingham will be the four midfielders. Rodrygo and Joselu will be the two forwards.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Real Betis have won 3 and drawn 2 of their last 5 La Liga matches.
  • Real Madrid have lost 1 out of their 15 La Liga matches this season.
  • Real Madrid have conceded 9 goals in 15 La Liga games this campaign.
  • Jude Bellingham has scored 11 goals and given 2 assists in 13 La Liga matches this season.
  • Willian Jose has scored 6 goals in 12 La Liga games for Real Betis this campaign.

Conclusion

Real Betis have a good team, are doing well and are at home. It is not going to be easy for Real Madrid to win the match. However, Madrid have the better team and should pick up all three points from the encounter in the end.
