Real Madrid vs Real Betis
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 19th May 2019
Kick-off at 11.00 UK/ 12.00 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabéu (Madrid).
It has not been a sweet homecoming for Zinedine Zidane. He took the reins of a club in danger, and since then he has not been able to turn things around. At one point or the other, the fans will stop living in the past, and start demanding performances from the hattrick Champions League hero.
This summer will be very crucial for Los Blancos. A lot of new signings will arrive, and much deadweight may be discarded. Anyhow, the team, as well as the fans, will want a last hurrah from this season-ender.
Betis was a treat to watch these last two seasons, but they failed to qualify for a European spot. Nevertheless, they have never stopped to enthrall viewers, and they just might go for the jugular this Sunday at the Bernabéu.

Real Madrid vs Real Betis Prediction
This being the final game of the season, and that too at the Santiago Bernabéu, Zidane and his boys will be determined to give the fans a win. There’s a lot happening in the summer, and they need to sign things off on a positive note.
Madrid has always dominated Betis, and h2h stats clearly demonstrate this. The last five meetings saw four Madrid wins, and the last eight at this venue had seven home wins. Also, Betis has won just once at this esteemed stadium in the last two decades.
Importantly, Madrid won the last five home ties in a row, whereas Betis lost the last four on the road. Count on the Blancos to win this tie.
Going on, Madrid has been conceding goals in plenty, and Betis with their free-flowing style will take advantage of this. In fact, Real Madrid failed to keep a clean sheet in 16 of their last 19 matches, and in seven of their last nine at home. Moreover, 12 of the last 16 h2h games and 11 of the last 17 at this venue saw goals from both teams. Expect the feat to be repeated this Sunday.
