          Real Madrid vs Real Betis: Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips

          The final day of the La Liga season has arrived, and Real Madrid will end the campaign by welcoming Real Betis to the Santiago Bernabeu.

          Date: 25/05/24

          Kick-off time: 20:00

          Venue: Santiago Bernabeu

          After securing the La Liga title with multiple games to spare, Real Madrid will hope to end the season on a high by beating Real Betis before lifting the trophy in front of their fans. Although they have a Champions League final on the horizon, all focus will be on securing a final three points. Their dominance at the top is highlighted by the 12-point gap between themselves and rivals Barcelona. This is helped by eight league wins in nine, and just one defeat on the entire season.

          Following defeat in their last game, Real Betis can no longer finish in the European place, sitting just outside in seventh, four points adrift of Real Sociedad. This is a very important fixture for Real Betis, as they sit just outside the European places in seventh. However, they have been in good form, as they were unbeaten in six games before defeat last time out.

          Betis have enjoyed some success in front of goal recently, scoring twice in six of their last eight games. They have conceded 11 in this time, setting up for what could be a high scoring game. Madrid’s dominance defensively is highlighted by four league clean sheets in five, though they allowed four in their last game. Their top scorers are Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Jr, who are looking to add to their tallies of 19 and 15 respectively. If they are given rests, Joselu and Rodrygo could produce a return, with the pair combining for 20 goals. The visitors will rely on the services of Willian Jose and Ayoze Perez, who have netted 10 and nine times.

          Since 2021, these two sides have met six times in La Liga. Real Betis are winless in this stretch, but have only lost twice, managing to pick up a point on the four other occasions. There has been a lack of goals in this fixture, highlighted by two goalless draws in recent years. The reverse fixture earlier this season also ended with the points shared in a 1-1 draw. Bellingham opened the scoring, before right back Aitor Ruibal equalised shortly after.

          Carlo Ancelotti has a mostly fit squad to choose from. David Alaba is the only long-term absentee, as he suffered a cruciate ligament injury earlier in the campaign. Aurelien Tchouameni is a doubt because he is dealing with a foot issue.

          Real Betis

          Real Betis have multiple injury issues to contend with. Guido Rodriguez has already been ruled out with a hamstring injury. Isco is also out. German Pezzella, Cedric Bakambu and Chimy Avila are all doubtful.

          Form Guide

          Real Madrid

          In their last five games, Real Madrid have won four and drawn one. It has been an incredible stretch for Real Madrid, as they secured the league title, and booked their place in the final of the Champions League. This run started with them officially becoming champions thanks to a 3-0 home win over Cadiz. This victory coupled with a Barcelona loss ensured they were La Liga title winners. All of the goals came in the second half, with Brahim Diaz, Jude Bellingham and Joselu all on the scoresheet.

          Attention then shifted to European action as they took on Bayern Munich in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final. After drawing the first leg 2-2, it was all to play for in Madrid. The second leg took place a week later and ended in dramatic fashion late on. Substitute Alphonso Davies broke the deadlock with just over 20 minutes remaining to give the German side an aggregate lead. But with two minutes of normal time left, Joselu equalised. He then scored a winner in stoppage time to send the stadium wild. There was controversy at the end, as Bayern put the ball in the back of the net, but the flag had already gone up for offside and the play was cut short. Replays showed that it may have been onside.

          They returned to league action in their first game as champions away at Granada. They were 4-0 winners, with Fran Garcia, Arda Guler and Diaz (x2) on the scoresheet. Another comfortable win followed, with a 5-0 victory. Bellingham opened the scoring early, before a Vinicius Jr brace and strikes from Federico Valverde and Guler completed the rout. Their most recent game was a trip to Villarreal and it ended in a thrilling 4-4 draw. The visitors were 4-1 up at half-time thanks to goals from Guler, Joselu and Lucas Vazquez. However, Alexander Sorloth scored four goals on the afternoon to secure an unlikely point.

          Real Betis

          In their last five games, Real Betis have won two, drawn two and lost one. It has been a good stretch for Betis as they tried to keep pace with the top seven. They fell just short after they lost 2-0 against Real Sociedad in their most recent game. First half goals from Brais Mendez and Mikel Merino condemned them to defeat.

          This followed dropped points away at Las Palmas, who sit in mid-table. They went ahead through an own goal from Mika Marmol, but the lead did not last long as Alex Suarez levelled the game. An Ayoze Perez strike put them back in front, though they were pegged back once more by Alberto Moleiro. Another high scoring game against Almeria resulted in three points. Their 3-2 win started with an early opener from Pablo Fornals. Isco doubled the lead, but the deficit was halved on the stroke of half-time. Perez extended the lead, before Luka Romero responded instantly. However, the visitors were unable to salvage a draw.

          It marked the second win in a row after a 2-0 victory at Osasuna. The hosts had a man sent off in the first half as Jon Moncayola saw red. Betis were able to make the most of their advantage, breaking the deadlock just before the break through Perez. Fornals added another in stoppage time allowing a comfortable afternoon. Their first game of this stretch was a 1-1 draw at home to Sevilla. They went ahead thanks to a first-half Isco penalty, but conceded the equaliser quickly in the second to Kike Salas.
