Real Betis – Real Madrid is one of the most highly-anticipated games of the weekend in La Liga. The local Sevillan team, which is known to be one of the weakest mid-table teams from La Liga, host one of the two undefeated sides of this season: Real Madrid. Will the international games take their toll on the Blanco footballers, or will their great quality ensure a win?
Real Betis vs Real Madrid – 15/10/2016
Apart from having lots of players called up for international duty, Real’s current form is hardly something to brag with.
They drew their last 3 games in La Liga, against less valuable opposition (Eibar, Las Palmas, and Villareal) and now face a team which is not dressed in yellow for the first time in over a month.
Sadly for them, they will also miss Casemiro, Modric, Ramos and Rodriguez for this game – which is sure to affect their game.
Meanwhile, Betis aren’t doing that bad. They are one of the teams which managed some good results against Real in recent years, including a 1-1 draw last season which was critical in the title race.
They’ve also beat Real once in 2012, and are doing more or less fine at the moment – 7 points from their last 5 games. They are currently undefeated in La Liga and would love to continue this great record after the game against Real Madrid.
Betis vs Real Madrid Betting Tips
This is a very, very hard game to predict – we have to be honest here. It will greatly depend on how Real’s players will fare. Apart from the few that are injured, Ronaldo and Bale also played 180 minutes of international football in mid-week.
If they are able to play and Zidane will include them in the starting line-up, Real should win – especially because they will want to break the current streak of draws. So, our prediction is Real to win narrowly, Betis to score (should have great odds) and under 3,5 goals in the game.
