Real Madrid started their campaign in a very strong fashion
Especially with the wins on the European Supercup and the Spanish Supercup over Manchester United and Barcelona, respectively.
After that, they already dropped some points in La Liga, with draws at home against Valencia and Levante. Without Ronaldo, the team has struggled a bit and Isco, Asensio, Bale and the others weren’t able to lead the team to victory on those home matches.
On the last match, they have beaten Real Sociedad 3-1 on a tricky visit to a very tough rival but where the Galacticos were able to pass the test. Now they can count with Cristiano Ronaldo again, who will make his debut on La Liga matches this season.
Real Bétis is a team that usually fights to avoid relegation and this season will be no different.
Still, this roster is a bit more interesting than last year’s. They have very experienced players such as Javi Garcia, Guardado, Joaquin, Cristian Tello or Sérgio León, who will try to replace Ruben Castro as the team’s goal scorer.
Bétis has 6 points in 4 matches. They have won both home matches, against Celta de Vigo and Deportivo de La Coruña, and have lost both away matches, at Barcelona and Villareal.
I predict a lot of troubles on this trip to Madrid, especially because they will witness the return of Ronaldo to La Liga.
Real Madrid vs Betis – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Real Madrid will go in very strong and having Ronaldo in the starting XI will give the Galacticos more firepower, since they failed to win the last 2 home matches in La Liga.
Real can’t afford to drop more points and now when they host Bétis, I believe they will want to get off to a strong start and already be in the lead at half-time.
This Bétis is not a bad team, they are stronger than they were last season, but they will struggle on this very tough trip to the Bernabéu, especially considering the circumstances, that should only make Real become stronger, with their recent failures on the last 2 home matches and the return of Ronaldo.
