Real Madrid may be languishing in fourth place in LaLiga but they put themselves in the driving seat of their Champions League round of 16 tie against PSG following a 3-1 win at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night.
Real Betis sit eighth in the table following back-to-back wins over Villarreal and Deportivo and have a respectable home record. They stunned the champions in September when Antonio Sanabria netted a last-gasp goal in a 1-0 victory.
A Look At Real Betis’ Betting Odds
Real Betis have held their own against Real Madrid in the last two meetings, a late Sergio Ramos winner seeing them lose 2-1 at the Bernabeu last March before Sanabria – on target in that game – stunned the European giants earlier in the season.
Five wins in their last eight league games have seen Quique Setien’s men rise to eighth in the standings while they have also been victorious in half of their home fixtures.
Striker Loren Moron has recently been promoted to the first team and he has made an immediate impact. The 24-year-old netted a brace in a 2-1 win over Villarreal on his debut before producing the winner at Deportivo on Monday night.
Betis have scored in 12 of their last 14 meetings with Madrid, who simply do not do clean sheets, so 3/2 for them to score exactly once is a percentage pick for our Real Betis vs Real Madrid betting tips.
A Look At Real Madrid’s Betting Odds
Zinedine Zidane’s side have responded well to the shock 1-0 home loss to Villarreal in mid-January, reeling off 10 points from a possible 12 and scoring 18 goals in the process.
Cristiano Ronaldo may not have been as productive this season on the goal front but he has hit some fine form, netting seven goals during that run.
The Portugal international still turns it on for the big games too, bagging a brace – including his 100th Champions League goal for the club – as they came from behind to beat PSG to give themselves a great chance of advancing to the last eight. He is 16/1 to open the scoring in a 3-1 win for Madrid in our Real Betis vs Real Madrid odds.
But their Achilles heel remains their inability to keep clean sheets, with their last six matches in all competitions coming good in the both teams to score market.
Real MADRID 3-1 PSG – Cristiano Ronaldo (2), Marcelo
