Betis vs Real Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
For Real Madrid, the always difficult away game against Real Betis is on the program on Saturday evening. The Madrid people have to win, after they got stuck on a goalless draw last week. However, the hosts from Andalusia are having their best start to the competition in more than seventy years.
With six points from the first two rounds of play, Real Betis is experiencing its best season start in years. For the last time that the Andalusians were without a point loss after two rounds of play, we have to go all the way back to the 1934-1935 season, the year in which they celebrated their only national title.
The self-confidence at Real Betis is therefore high. The narrow 0-1 victory over Alaves in the opening round came with a good dose of luck, but last week the green and white were lord and master in the convincing 2-0 victory over Real Valladolid. “Under the new coach Manuel Pellegrini we play the ball forward faster,” said playmaker Sergio Canales. ‘We like that playing style.’ It is of course still much too early to fly the flag, but after years of disappointment, the green and white part of Seville finally has reason to be optimistic again.
Real Madrid is going for title prolongation this season. However, the Royal was immediately damaged in its opening game last week, in the scoreless draw at Real Sociedad. The star formation of Zinedine Zidane must therefore grab three points on Saturday evening, otherwise FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid can tighten the thumbscrews.
Real Madrid had a poor start to the competition, but in the eyes of the bookmakers it remains the big favorite for winning the Spanish national title. Chairman Florentino Perez deliberately kept his hand on his purse last summer, because in his eyes this selection is strong enough to participate on all fronts. Especially in midfield, Zidane indeed has several options, but in the attack the flush is very thin. Luka Jovic, Mariano Diaz and Borja Mayoral have all been found too light and could still leave this transfer period, so in the center front only Karim Benzema will do. So in an offensive way, Real Madrid plays with fire.
