Jude Bellingham- Real Madrid vs Real Betis

Real Madrid vs Real Betis Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips | LaLiga


Real Madrid vs Real Betis will take place at the Santiago Bernabeu in LaLiga on the final matchday on May 26 as the champions prepare to host seventh-placed Betis.

The hosts will enter this contest on the back of a scintillating run of form that has seen them remain unbeaten across competitions for four months. This includes a run of six wins in their last eight games across competitions. Their last three games have been high-scoring affairs in particular, with Los Blancos netting 13 times, but also conceding four goals, all of which came in their 4-4 draw with Villarreal last time around. However, with three clean sheets in their last five, they will look to end the season on a strong defensive note.

The visitors, on the other hand, will enter this game on the back of a decent run of form as well. They have secured four wins, two draws and two defeats across their last eight games as they have managed the run-in fairly well. However, clean sheets have been a rarity for Betis as they have managed just one in their last eight games, conceding at least one goal in all others. They lost 2-0 against Real Sociedad in their last game, ending hopes of Europa League qualification, but will look to end the campaign on a winning note.

That said, let’s take a look at the team news coming out of both camps.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti will enjoy a nearly fully fit squad – a luxury he has not had for most of the season. However, two key players will miss out as David Alaba and Aurelien Tchouameni slowly make their way towards full recovery.

Real Betis

Manager Manuel Pellegrini will have multiple injury concerns ahead of the next one, with the main one being Isco, who will miss out due to a broken fibula. Other players on the sidelines are long-term absentees Marc Bartra, Cedric Bakambu and Chimy Avila. Guido Rodriguez and German Pezzella are also doubtful for the next one.

Real Madrid vs Real Betis Predicted Lineups

Real Madrid

Ancelotti went with a heavily-rotated XI for the last game to ensure fringe players get a good game. However, with the Champions League final due to be played next weekend, the Italian will field a strong team in order to give some competitive game-time to his starters ahead of the showdown against Borussia Dortmund.

Predicted XI: Andriy Lunin (GK); Daniel Carvajal (C), Eder Militao, Antonio Rudiger, Ferland Mendy; Federico Valverde, Toni Kroos, Eduardo Camavinga, Jude Bellingham; Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior.

Real Betis

Pellegrini, too, will field the strongest possible XI with the resources available at hand.

Predicted XI: Rui Silva (GK); Youssouf Sabaly, Sokratis, Chadi Riad, Juan Miranda; Johnny, William Carvalho; Pablo Fornals, Nabil Fekir (C), Ayoze Perez; Willian Jose.

Head-to-Head Record

These teams have faced each other regularly for multiple decades now. However, recent games between Real Madrid and Real Betis have been low-scoring affairs. The teams have shared three draws in their last five meetings, with two being goalless. Los Blancos have won two games as they lead the head-to-head record in recent times.

Real Madrid vs Real Betis Prediction

As you can see, recent meetings between these two sides have been low-scoring. However, given it is the final day of the season, that can be expected to change as both teams have nothing to lose but all to play for. Both teams will set themselves up with attacking tactics, so one can expect a thriller. However, Real Madrid will comfortably win it with the quality they possess in their ranks.

Prediction: Real Madrid 4-2 Real Betis.

Betting Tips & Odds

Three of the last five meetings between these two teams at the Bernabeu have ended in goalless draws, which will change this weekend. Betis have been awful in defence in their last eight, conceding in seven of them. However, Real Madrid have also shows chinks in their armour, conceding four in their last match alone.
