Real Madrid Our Pick for Tough Test Against Real Betis

Despite having several key players injured, Real Madrid is atop the La Liga standings. However, the team’s only defeat and one of their two draws were on the road. But the main reason to consider this match a tough road test is that Real Betis is on a 10-game non-losing streak. Time to make some La Liga bet picks based on this strong candidate for Game of the Week.

Real Betis Advances in Copa del Rey

Midweek, Real Betis came from behind to defeat CF Villanovense 2-1 in the second round of the Copa del Rey. That’s relevant because now you can expect the team to be even more motivated.

It was a very important match for Borja Iglesias, who scored the winner. That allowed him to regain some confidence since he hasn’t scored a single goal in La Liga. Meanwhile, William Jose has scored six goals

Real Betis was the La Liga betting favorite to defeat Almeria last Sunday but drew 0-0. Right-back Hector Bellerin was sent off, which means he won’t be able to face Real Madrid.

Betis hasn’t lost in its last 10 games. However, their last defeat was a humiliating 5-0 beating against Barcelona, also failing to defeat Atletico Madrid in the season opener with a goalless draw. Summing up, they haven’t done so well against the powerhouses.

Real Madrid Scored Five Goals in Last Two Road Games

Real Madrid’s last road game was against Cadiz, which met the expectations created by our soccer lines. Rodrygo led the way to a 3-0 victory with a brace. Jude Bellingham also scored. The Englishman is the tournament’s top scorer with 11 goals.

Prior to that, Real Madrid defeated Barcelona 2-1 at Montjuic. Bellingham scored twice and won Player of the Match. The Golden Boy is having a great season, enough to already be considered a top candidate to win the Ballon d’Or.

 

 

 


Real Madrid has excelled on the road. Yes, they lost 3-1 to Atletico Madrid but haven’t lost since then. Plus, they are still winning without injured Vinicius Junior. Luckily for them, Brahim Diaz took a step forward and is doing amazing things.

Real Madrid needs a win this weekend, a draw or worse would give Girona the chance to take first place in the table.

One Goal Difference

Last season, the match between Real Betis and Real Madrid at Benito Villamarin finished 0-0. The previous four meetings between the two in Seville finished with a one-goal difference. Expect a close contest on Saturday.

I think the over is one of the best soccer picks today with the total set at 2½ goals. So far, Real Betis has scored in all their home games but one and Real Madrid has scored in all their road games.

Real Betis will put up a good fight led by Isco Alarcon, who’s eager to prove Real Madrid wrong after the team ditched him a couple of seasons ago. However, Betis won’t pull off the stunner. Real Madrid owns the league’s best defensive unit, only conceding nine goals in 15 games. It’s going to be a close contest, but the visitors will prevail 2-1.
