Match Preview

This game sees the end of a disappointing campaign for third-placed Real Madrid, but they can at least sign off with a sixth consecutive La Liga (LL) win at home if they claim all three points against Real Betis here.
Only two of Madrid’s recent five home victories were accompanied by a clean sheet, although seven of their eight LL home wins prior were ‘to nil’. While the Spanish giants have scored in both halves in one third of their top-flight home games this season, the vast majority (68.75%) of their home league goals have been scored in the second half, whilst over a third (37.5%) have arrived after the 75th minute.
Therefore if the hosts aren’t winning by half-time, home fans shouldn’t despair. Especially as across Madrid’s last five home wins they were leading at the break in just one (HT: W1, D3, L1). Opponents Betis, on the other hand, are on a four-game losing LL away streak, and were trailing at half-time in all four games.
However, the visitors don’t make things easy when they lose, with seven of their ten LL away defeats this term coming by a tight one-goal margin. Although saying that, Betis have often struggled to score on the road, and have failed to hit the net in 44.44% of their top-flight away outings.
Players to watch: Madrid’s Karim Benzema has scored an impressive six goals across his last three LL home appearances – all six came after half-time. Meanwhile, six of Giovani Lo Celso’s (BET) nine league goals have also arrived in the second half.
Stat attack: There’s been at least three yellow cards shown in each of Madrid’s last five league matches.
There’s been at least five yellow cards in each of Betis’ last five LL away matches.
Both teams have scored in five of the last six H2Hs.
