Real Madrid is visiting Betis for the weekend, and there is more bad news for Real Madrid’s fans since Carlo Ancelotti has numerous personnel problems. Nacho Fernandez also joined the long list of injured players, who will almost certainly skip the visit to "Benito Villamarin". Cross, Modric, Ceballos, and Mandy are still out, while Marcelo is only slowly returning to training and there is little chance that he will play. That could open the door to Jesus Vallejo, who got a chance again after a bunch of loans and could now use it. Another option is for Alaba to play stopper with Militao, and for young Miguel Gutierrez to play near the outline.
The match Betis vs Real Madrid is scheduled for Saturday at 22.00 and watching these two teams’ history and their matches, I can say that it is for sure one of the derby matches in round 3 of LaLiga season 2021/2022. Traditionally, away games are a challenge for the Madrid team, plus now when the fans are back in the stands, we all know how excited the Benito Villamarin stadium can be.
About Real Madrid
After two first rounds of the new season, Real Madrid has 4 points, they won against Alaves and draw last weekend against Levante. Both matches finished with many goals. In the last week’s match between Real and Levante, in addition to the excellent game of the home team and the poor defense of Madrid, the game was also marked by Vinicius Junior, which might be good news for all Madrid’s fans. The young Brazilian entered the game in the 59th minute, replacing Azar, and proved to be the best player on the field. Vinicius lived up to Angelotti's expectations, perhaps exceeding them. After entering the field, he scored two goals in the match, first in the 73rd minute, and then in the 85th minute, a very attractive goal. After two rounds of La Liga, the Brazilian scored three goals. But besides the result, the fans can be pleased because Gareth Bale scored his first league goal in La Liga in two years!
Betis lost Emerson Royal (Barcelona) and Aise Mandy (Villarreal) this year, which will probably be felt in the defensive part. Manuel Pellegrini's team is counting on great players such as Nabil Fekir and Sergio Canales, and another year on their legend Joaquin Sanchez. They hope that Borja Iglesias will get back in shape and that the Europa League matches will not overwhelm them. The question is whether they will be able to repeat the continuity of the game from last year and an equally high ranking at the end of the season (sixth place). So far, however, they have not brought anyone. And, judging by the words of president Angel Ara, a polemical investment by the CVC fund to at least strengthen the defense would be very welcome.Bet on Real Betis vs Real Madrid with1xBet
Betis in the first 2 rounds has 2 draw matches, one away against Mallorca and one home match against Cadiz. Last season Real Madrid won at Benito Villamarin with 2-3 and the match was very controversial with many referee’s mistakes. Betis managed to held Real Madrid in a match at Santiago Bernabéu 0-0, and it happened in a very sensitive part of the season when Real was in a tight race for the trophy.
This season they meet up early and of course, Real Madrid is a favourite, but it won’t be a surprise if Betis manage to win a point or maybe all three.
