This one will be a very important game for Real Madrid after the two encouraging home wins against Deportivo and Sporting Gijón. Although Betis are on the verge of being relegated this season, they will definitely play with a lot of intensity and their home-field advantage is a very important one.
James is expected to make it into the starting XI in Bale's spot. The Welshman will be out at least a couple of weeks more after picking up a calf injury last weekend. Other than that, Zidane should not make many more changes in his starting XI. Real Madrid's schedule isn't very busy at the moment and the players surely have fresh legs to compete against Betis.
Benzema will start the match even though he was forced to leave last weekend's game with what appeared to be an ankle injury. The French striker doesn't have a pure replacement in this roster and Zidane will surely be happy about having him with the squad again.
