Real Madrid to Honor Toni Kroos With Home Win

Real Madrid has struggled against Betis in recent years, winning just one of their last four meetings, but there’s reason to believe that they will continue their high-scoring form and close out their league season with a win.

Carlo Ancelotti’s focus will be on the Champions League Final in a week, with the Italian likely to heavily rotate once again and rest his key players ahead of their do-or-die fixture against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley.

Toni Kroos will bid farewell to Santiago Bernabeu after announcing his decision to retire from football following the summer’s Euros, so Real will be extra motivated to close their domestic season with three points. In their last 13 home matches, they have dropped points just once – a 1-1 draw vs. Atletico Madrid – and we’re expecting them to continue their impressive form.

It has been a challenging season for Real, with Thibaut Courtois, David Alaba, and Eder Militao all suffering ACL injuries in the early weeks of the season. After losing top scorer Karim Benzema to Al-Ittihad, Real did not spend heavily, but instead, brought in Joselu on loan from Espanyol, retrieved Brahim Diaz from his three-year loan at Milan, and paid €20 million for Arda Guler from Fenerbahce.

 

Arda Guler on Fire: Lock in Today’s Scorer Pick

At 19 years of age, Guler has emerged as a revelation for Ancelotti’s side and is all but guaranteed to start against Betis. Since Real wrapped up their league title, Guler has been given multiple opportunities to shine and play from the start, and he’s made the most of his chances, scoring in their 1-0 win at Real Sociedad on April 26 before doubling the lead in their 4-0 win at Granada. He would follow that up by putting the seal on their 5-0 victory vs. Alaves before grabbing a brace against Villarreal, and he has scored 6 goals from 6 shots on target in his maiden season in La Liga.

Just a few weeks ago, it seemed likely that Guler would have to go out on loan to get playing time, with Endrick and Kylian Mbappe set to reinforce Los Blancos’ high-powering arsenal, but instead, the Turkish prospect has staked out a claim as a top-level footballer both in attack and midfield. His versatility and creativity should see him remain and fight for a place in 2024-25 under Ancelotti. We’re backing Guler to score in our soccer betting picks today.
