Real Betis vs. Real Madrid Predictions and Preview
Real Betis are on a miserable run of form – they have won just once in their last 10 La Liga games and are without a win in seven in all competitions.
Boss Rubi is under pressure as his side languish in the bottom half of La Liga, and will be firm underdogs in this clash.
Real Madrid’s form has been extremely rocky this month – a 21-match unbeaten run was recently ended and they have lost three of their last six in all competitions.
They exited the Copa del Rey against Real Sociedad while they suffered a damaging 2-2 home draw against lowly Celta de Vigo before a loss at Levante, but went back atop the league with an El Clasico win over Barcelona last time out.
The visitors are favourites for this encounter at odds of 3/4 with a Betis victory priced at 3/1 and the draw available at 17/5.
Madrid have 14 clean sheets in 25 and 17 in total all season, so under 1.5 goals at 4/1 with bet Victor appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 29/20.
A ‘double chance’ on Betis to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 21/20 with William Hill while a Madrid win/draw outcome is at 1/5.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 17/10.
One to watch for Real Betis: Loren Moron is the dangerman for Betis with nine goals in 15 La Liga starts this season and can be found at 21/10 with 888 Sport to score here.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Karim Benzema netted a highly credible 30 goals last campaign for Madrid and already has 17 from 32 in all competitions this time out. Is priced at 10/11 to find the net in this game.
Long shot: Madrid have kept 14 clean sheets in 25, while Betis have just 36 La Liga goals this season. A scoreless draw here is priced at 14/1 with William Hill and appears to be notable value, considering this was the result earlier in the season.
