Real Madrid win
Real Betis has had one of its best seasons under Manuel Pellegrini. The team climbed to the 5th position in the table, and the loss to the Champions League zone is only 2 points. At the moment, they are the only team in La Liga with 3 consecutive victories. True, it is worth considering the complexity of the calendar. Green and White managed to defeat such outsiders as Almeria (2:3), Valladolid (2:1) or Elche (3:2).
On average, a team creates 1.54xg per game (3rd in the example), with 1.26xg allowed. However, in the upcoming meeting, Betis will have to do without Fekir (2+2) and Canales (4+2), who lead in terms of participation in offensive actions and the number of chances created.
Real Madrid are 2nd in 23 matchdays, 7 points behind leaders Barcelona. The style of the team is based on possession of the ball (59%) and total dominance over the opponent in every part of the pitch. This allows for an average of 2.11 xg per match, with 0.89 xg allowed.
“Krem” rarely use high pressure this season, which will significantly complicate the task of “Betis”, who likes to lure the opponent to his half of the pitch.
In the final matches, Real shared the points with Atlético (1-1) in the Example and lost to Barcelona (0-1) in the cup.
Modric will miss the upcoming match due to the lack of yellow cards.
Real Madrid still have a theoretical chance of winning gold medals and are bound to get three points against such an opponent, especially since Betis will have a very big creative problem in the last period.
