Date and time: Saturday. September 26, 8pm
Location: Estadio Benito Villamarin
Real Betis and Real Madrid clash on Saturday, and this game has the potential to frustrate Zinedine Zidane. After last week’s 0-0 draw at Real Sociedad, this is another difficult away game against a side who will be chasing European qualification.
From a betting perspective, Madrid will be favourites. Betis are led by former boss Manuel Pellegrini, and will definitely be a threat. After no summer transfer activity, Zidane must get a tune out of his players. Last week, they drew a blank.
That simply cannot happen again here. We are playing it safe with a Real Madrid win at 1/3 with Bet365.
Why should you back a Real Madrid win here?
Real Madrid only failed to win two games in a row three times throughout last season. Make no mistake, this one will definitely be tough; Betis didn’t lose either of the games home or away last season.
But Karim Benzema was Los Blancos’ top scorer last season and he will have to start firing in this one. If you back him to score anytime here, at you’ll get odds of 5/6 with Bet365.
What other markets are worth looking at?
This is where you can cover a few bases, because there are really good ways to back Betis and Madrid with value. Under 2.5 goals at 11/10 with Bet365, for example, is definitely enticing. Four of Betis’ last five games have gone that way.
If you want to back a shock Betis win here, we suggest looking at a wincast with Antonio Sanabria scoring first at 12/1 with Bet365.
