Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 12th March 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid will be hosting a Basque side Real Betis to Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday night in the La Liga week 27.
The La Liga title race is getting hotter with Barcelona picking up strong form and Sevilla also still keeping up with the pressure. Real Madrid will be hoping for a chance to regain the lead they lost to Barcelona couple of weeks ago.
Los Blancos have been on their best form at home and no La Liga side have collected more points at home than Real Madrid this campaign. However, they have had few clean sheets this campaign but their priority in this game should be a win to keep up with the pressure.
Real Betis are in 14th position with 28 points and are safely 9 points above the bottom 3 teams. They haven’t been good recently, they have just a win in their last 5 games and have conceded 10 goals in the 5 games.
Betis have been able to cause troubles for their opponents in their last 2 games away from home. They won one against Malaga and drew against Deportivo La Coruna, they will hope to also stir up trouble for Zidane’s men.
