Storylines

Real Madrid: Los Blancos have a little momentum after a big win over Leganes midweek in the Copa del Rey, but there's no denying they've been awful in the league. A title contender most seasons, but team needs to pull off a string of wins to have any chance of really battling for the league crown. That could start here.

Real Betis: The club is coming off of a really poor 2-1 loss to Huesca in perhaps its worst performance of the season. It was a golden chance to get some separation from other clubs, but now Betis is under a bit of pressure to find some consistency. After beating Barcelona earlier in the season, Betis will surely feel like it can pull off the upset here against a reeling Real Madrid side.

Real Madrid vs. Real Betis prediction

Playing at the Villamarin is never easy, and Betis has done well to bounce back from bad results, but here both teams get just a point in a dramatic affair with tons of chances. 

Pick: Draw (+280)
