Real Madrid visit Betis in what will be their second game of the 2020-2021 La Liga season. Los Blancos are coming off a disappointing 0-0 draw against Real Sociedad on their season opener and need to bounce back and show a better offensive display this time.

Betis predicted XI: Bravo, Emerson, Mandi, Bartra, Moreno, Carvalho, Rodriguez, Fekir, Canales, Joaquin, Iglesias.

Real Madrid predicted XI: Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Odegaard, Vinicius, Benzema.

If Casemiro returns to the starting lineup, Zidane could start Odegaard on the right wing to give the team more creativity. Isco and Rodrygo are also candidates for that spot, so this time Zidane has options to choose from.

Betis are a quality team and have some very good players. In fact, it’s likely that they are a better team than Real Sociedad, so it will be crucial for Madrid to complete a good performance if they want to get the three points in this one.
