Benítez and his pupils will try to earn their first victory of the 15/16 season against newly promoted Betis. Real Madrid's squad is now official.

Real Madrid starting XI: Navas; Danilo, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Kroos, Modric; Cristiano, Bale, James; Benzema.

Betis starting XI: Adán; Piccini, Pezzella, Bruno, Molinero; Xavi Torres, N'Diaye, Cejudo, Vargas; Dani Ceballos and Rubén Castro

Real Madrid will definitely try to bounce back after a disappointing draw against Sporting Gijón. Though Madrid probably deserved to win that match, the performance wasn't brilliant at all and the team has big room for improvement. With James and Benzema the squad should definitely improve.

Los Blancos could still add some players to the roster before the end of the transfer market. David De Gea is the one player who appears to be set to join the club but it will not be easy to sign him away from Manchester United.
