Real Betis vs Real Madrid Prediction And Odds: Preview
Manuel Pellegrini had a humbling start to the latest LaLiga season with two consecutive draws in his first two games. Betis drew 1-1 against Mallorca and Cadiz in their initial two games of the season, respectively.
However, Pellegrini was not impressed by the performances of both the teams involved in the Real Betis and Cadiz game. The former Man City coach labelled LaLiga as a ‘disgrace’ and claimed that it is one of the most boring leagues in the world.
Pellegrini accused teams of deliberate time-wasting and constant diving which makes the game very slow. The 67-year-old coach added that Spanish teams owe it to their fans to offer them some entertaining football.
Pellegrini, in his post-match interview, said: ‘We have to make an effort between referees, coaches and players so that LaLiga is not this shame because in the referees’ meeting they told us that it is the slowest league in Europe. ‘People want to watch a show, and we’re not giving it to them. The most time-wasting, the most dives, it’s a disgrace. ‘There is a show that we have to take care of. People pay a ticket for something.’
Real Madrid under the leadership of Carlo Ancelotti had a mixed start to the season. The Los Blancos muscled Alaves in their opening day with a 1-4 away win. Karim Benzema scored a brace as Nacho and Vinicius Jr also made it to the scoresheet.
However, Madrid’s dominating start was dented when they travelled to Valencia to face Levante. Vinicius Jr saved the day for Madrid with two late goals to end the match in a 3-3 stalemate. Nevertheless, the upcoming season looks promising for the Whites with some early glimpses of an overall team performances.
Real Madrid had to let go of their two primary defenders as Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane left for PSG and Man United in the on going transfer window. The exit of the two defenders was both shocking and disheartening for the Madrid fans who were still recovering from departure of coach Zinedine Zidane.
Nevertheless, Ancelotti is a trusted coach and has found success at the helm of Real Madrid before as well. He like to play attacking football and that’s exactly what is expected by the Los Blancos fan. Nacho and Eder Militao have replaced Ramos and Varane in the centre-back position.
Time is running out for Eden Hazard as the Belgian needs to produce something big before Ancelotti replaces him with Vini Jr in the starting XI. With a possible arrival of Kylian Mbappe in the team, Hazard will have to prove his mettle to retain his position in the wings. Marcelo and Mariano Diaz are expected to return from injury for the Betis clash.
Speaking in the post-match press conference, Ancelotti said: “Where we’ve lost points today wasn’t in attack, but it was in defence. I think we were compact and together in the first half. In the second half, we didn’t go into it with a good attitude. We conceded a goal straight away, which could have been avoided. With the second goal, we could have been more compact too. To have more defensive solidity, everyone has to work.
