Real Madrid team news

Real Madrid have very few injury concerns to worry about. Winger Rodrygo and defender Nacho return to the squad after muscle complaints, though Alvaro Odriozola was not included.

Carlo Ancelotti will put out a strong XI, with the only areas of contention being in defence, depending on whether David Alaba plays centrally or out wide.

Real Madrid vs Real Betis score prediction

It doesn't matter what gets thrown at Real Madrid these days, they just keep on winning. Three wins in a row on the road have seen them best Almeria, Mallorca and Osasuna, but the return to the Bernabeu pits them against much tougher opposition in Betis.

With a similar record to Madrid having only conceded once, Betis also have the joint-leading scorer in La Liga so far this season in Borja Iglesias. They'll test Los Blancos, but may still leave empty-handed.

Prediction: Real Madrid 2-1 Real Betis
