Real Madrid will host Real Betis this Saturday, as the battle for the top spot heats up in the ongoing season of La Liga.
The reigning European as well as the Spanish champions have had a perfect start to the season, lifting the UEFA Super Cup, as well as winning each of its 3 opening matches in the top flight. Real faced a tricky Espanyol Barcelona last Monday, and the match seemed to be heading for a draw. But Karim Benzema scored a brace in the final minutes of the game to hand the visitors a full set of points yet again, and maintain its hold over the top spot.
Real Betis, who had to settle for a Europa League spot last season, has started the current campaign with a perfect record of 3 wins in as many matches. With its Europa League fixture against HJK coming up next week, Manuel Pellegrini’s side will be in no mood to concede as it aims for a Champions League spot this time around. After scoring 2 convincing wins at the start of the season, Betis had some trouble in overcoming Osasuna last weekend. But a first-half goal by Borja Iglesias proved enough for them to overcome the visitors.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Real Madrid vs Real Betis Balompie La Liga 2022-23. The match is going to be played at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Madrid, on 3rd September 2022.
With Casemiro moving to Manchester United, Carlo Ancelotti will be relying on Aurelien Tchouameni to fill the gap in the midfield, joining Luka Modric and Toni Kroos. Jesus Vallejo and Alvaro Odriozala remain doubtful while Nacho could find a place in the playing eleven. Federico Valverde will also likely be brought in to strengthen the defense against an in-form Betis.
As for the visitors, William Carvalho and Guido Rodriguez are likely to feature in the midfield, while Rodri could be replaced by Sergio Canales. German Pezzella will be serving a suspension and will be replaced by Luiz Felipe. Victor Camarasa and Martin Montoya are in the infirmary and likely to miss this match.
Given the top form of both the teams, it is pretty difficult to call the match, but we reckon that the hosts hold a slight advantage here.
Bet on a Real Madrid win.
Real Madrid has not kept a clean sheet in any of its 3 matches so far in the competition, and we predict that Betis will get at least 1 goal through its defense. While Betis has allowed just 1 goal in its opening defenses, they will find it difficult to maintain that record against Madrid, who have an aggregate of 9 goals so far in the 3 matches.
Benzema was the key in Madrid’s win over Espanyol, and he has already scored 3 goals in as many games so far in the current season. Back on home turf, we are backing him to score against Betis this weekend.
