Real Madrid vs Real Betis Preview
Betis have been one of the division’s most in form teams in 2021, losing just two of their 16 league clashes this year, which both came by the narrowest of margins – a 3-2 loss against Barcelona and a 1-0 reverse against Sevilla.
Pellegrini’s team also held La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid to a 1-1 draw just two weeks ago and the Andalusians certainly have more than enough quality to compete with La Liga’s biggest sides.
Whilst Madrid have kept three consecutive clean sheets in all competitions, the two most recent of those came against Getafe and Cadiz who are two of La Liga’s lowest-scoring teams this season.
The visitors should be able to contribute to an open game on Saturday night and this fixture is often highly entertaining, with the last six renewals featuring 21 goals.
