Moneyline pick: Real Madrid -255
Both sides will be faced with their toughest challenge of the season as they’ve both been able to log wins against lower teams up until now. Madrid has put nine goals in the net, with their biggest win coming as a 4-1 victory over Celta Vigo in Matchday 2. Betis opened the season with a 3-0 win over Elche, and were able to grind out a 2-1 win over Mallorca thanks to two penalty conversions. They most recently had a 1-0 win over Osasuna.
Real Betis is led by Borja Iglesias, who scored both penalties against Mallorca and added another goal in each of the other matches to bring his total to four on the campaign. Madrid, unsurprisingly, is led by Karim Benzema who has knocked in three so far with Vinicius Jr. adding two through the first three matches.
History is certainly on the side of Los Blancos, as they’ve gone 12-4-4 against Betis through their last 20 games. Betis’ last win over Madrid came in March of 2020 when they escaped with a 2-1 victory thanks to goals from Sidnei and Cristian Tello, who recently signed with MLS side LAFC. Expect Madrid to get the win here as they look to distance themselves at the top of the table from the rest of the pack.
