Real Betis vs Real Madrid Prediction
Goals have been scarce in the Real Madrid matches lately, courtesy of their best defense in the league last season. Besides, Ramos and Co. haven’t been at their best in the scoring with Benzema not being a regular customer of slotting in goals.
Real Betis had a narrow win in the opening clash with a 2-0 scoreline. The host cannot be expected to score despite having the home ground advantage since it is Los Blancos at the other side. However, Real Madrid could not defeat the host in both fixtures last term.
Considering the change in Zidane’s team post lockdown leading to a swift ride to the title last season in the La Liga, the away win cannot be neglected in the clash. For safer options, the draw no bet over Real Madrid at 1.40 odds will probably be the ideal choice in the encounter.
Furthermore, there will not be many goals in the clash despite having many famous names in the middle as the host will probably play more defensively. That’s why the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns from the encounter.
