Among Friday’s football events, the battle between Real Madrid and Betis stands out. Full statistics and current odds for the match can be found at 1 xbet.
Betis had a good season
For Betis this season has not turned out so bad, the club was even in contention to qualify for the Champions League, but now the team is fifth, three points behind the desired top four. Even if they catch up with Atletico, the Spurs would be higher on extra points. It is worth bearing in mind that sixth-placed Real Sociedad are just two points behind, but fifth and sixth place in the Primera qualify for the Europa League. It should not be forgotten that Betis took the Spanish Cup this season, a major achievement. In the last round they managed to beat Granada at home, Juanmi scored a double. Two players will miss the upcoming battle due to injuries.
Real Madrid are still preparing for the final
The Slivos have long since clinched the title, so it should come as no surprise that the team have won just one meeting out of three in the Primera Division. Only in the victorious 6-0 win against Levante did Ancelotti release the core, and so, chances were given to the reserves. In the last round, there was an away draw against Cadiz, 1-1. It still makes sense for Madrid to save resources, they are facing a Champions League final against Liverpool, a very serious opponent. In the upcoming battle, it is quite realistic to see a rotation of the squad. According to preliminary information, five players will not be able to play.
The game of the first round was more memorable with a large number of yellow cards, there were as many as 9, but there was only one goal scored, the victory for Real brought a goal by Dani Carvajal – 1:0.
As often happens in the last rounds, no one wants a win at all costs, so we should expect a game on three results. It’s still a question of whether Real Madrid will play the basics, as the leaders may be saved for the Champions League final. Bookmakers consider the Madrid side favourites for the meeting, although betting on the outcome in such encounters is dangerous. We think the best bet here is a total of more than 3 goals.
