On Saturday, September 3, in Madrid at the stadium “Santiago Bernabeu” will be held the match of the fourth round of the championship of Spain on football, which will play Real Madrid and Betis Seville. The starting whistle of Jose Maria Sanchez Martinez from Lorca will sound at 17:15 Kyiv time.
At the start of the new season of the Spanish national championship, Real Madrid is doing exactly what the current champion is supposed to do – successfully moving towards defending its title in the domestic arena. The opening meetings against Almeria (2:1), Celta (4:1) and Espanyol (3:1) once again emphasized that Carlo Ancelotti’s team is still not reliable enough in the defensive line, however, the Galacticos attacking link » manages to deliver the results the team needs. It is obvious that the confrontations against the strongest teams in the country are still ahead of the “creamy” ones, however, “Real” at full speed will be even more difficult to stop.
Next week, Ancelotti’s team will be the first in the group with Shakhtar Donetsk to visit Scottish Celtic, after which the Ukrainian team will be able to assess their own chances of success in the upcoming European Cup campaign. The capital team actually missed the final days of the transfer window, except for the outgoing transfer of Casemiro to Manchester United. Real Madrid, however, have already started cultivating replacements for their midfield players, so this period of slight turbulence should pass quietly.
Real Betis Seville will be the first really high-level opposition that the defending champions will have to play against. Like Real Madrid, the Green-Whites have not lost a match since the start of the new La Liga season, beating Elche (3-0), Mallorca (2-1) and Osasuna (1-0). ), which did not always become convenient opponents for the “royal” club, despite the absence of big names. In fact, we will have to watch the confrontation between the leaders of the standings, since none of the teams managed to score maximum points after three starting rounds.
Chilean coach Manuel Pellegrini has already managed to fall in love in that part of Seville, which does not support the club of the same name. In the last transfer campaign, his team paid little attention to their own purchases, working on the prospect in terms of buying striker Luis Enrique from the Brazilian Flamengo, as well as strengthening their center of attack and defense with Willian José from Real Sociedad and Luis Felipe as a free agent, respectively. . At the same time, Betis have not lost any of the key performers, so they are confidently looking towards new heights in La Liga and the Europa League.
Real Madrid: Courtois – Mendy, Alaba, Militao, Carvajal – Modric, Chuameni, Kroos – Vinicius, Benzema, Valverde.
Betis: Silva – Moreno, Gonzalez, Felipe, Ruibal – Carvalho, Rodriguez – Juanmi, Fekir, Canales – Iglesias.
Forecast for confrontation
We believe that the hosts will be able to win a tough victory in the upcoming game. Our bet will be the position – “Real” will not lose and TB 2.5 with a coefficient of 2.35 on the Parimatch line.
