Real Betis is hosting Real Madrid at Benito Villamarin in round 3 of the Spanish LaLiga. Betis has two draws at the start of the season, but they have been the better team in both of those games. Real has 1 win and 1 draw in their two games, but they have conceded a ton of goals.

Betis has had an easy schedule at the start of the season, and it is a shame they weren’t able to win any of those games. In their last game, Betis was hosting Cadiz, and they were the dominant team with an impressive 74% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a high 90% of the correct passes. Betis conceded from the penalty spot in the 11th minute, but they tied the score just 11 minutes later. Betis has created a ton of chances, but they are struggling with finishing them, and this game has ended in a 1-1 draw. Junami has scored 2 goals for Betis this season. Lainez and Sabaly are both injured for Betis at the moment. I think Betis is a good team, but it will be another week or so before they warm up, but once they do, they will be hard to beat.

Real Madrid has been great in the attacking end, but they have conceded 4 goals in the first 2 games of the season, and that is not good. Real Madrid has also scored 7 goals this season, and Vinicius is their leading goalscorer with 3 goals, while Benzema added 2 goals. Modric, Kroos, Mendy, and Ceballos are all injured for Real Madrid, and that is a problem. In their game against Levante on the road, Real was the dominant team with 61% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a high 90% of the correct passes. Offensively, Real was great, but defensively, they were just terrible. Real Madrid was losing twice in this game, but they were able to come back both times. The final score of this match was 3-3. I think that the upcoming international break will do Real Madrid some good, but the only thing fans are waiting for right now is if PSG will accept the offer for Mbappe, and if they do, he will be a great addition to this team.

I think this will be a fun game, and Betis has been scoring goals pretty consistently at home against Real Madrid, and I think they will score here. I’m not sure if Betis can get a win here, but Real’s defense is sloppy, and it could happen, but I’m sticking to goals.
