RM vs RB Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Real Madrid face a tough task to get their league campaign back on track when they travel to Seville to take on an in-form Real Betis at Benito Villamarín Stadium, in Seville, Spain, on Sunday night (IST).
For a club of Real Betis stature, a top-half finish can be seen as a success at the end of any season. But Betis are no ordinary club. They have a stadium which has more capacity than some of the so-called big guns of Europe. And they hardly find any difficulty in filling the seats such is the fan base they boast within the city.
Last season was definitely a marker for them when they managed to finish in the top-6. And the fact that they spent money in the summer on the new arrivals, was indicating towards the belief within the club that it can rival more established powers such as Sevilla, and Valencia for the champions league places.
At the moment, they are sitting at 6th with 26 points from the first 18 games. But Valencia are below them and had struggled up until now. You never know when teh Los Che start getting into their groove, so Betis can’t just take their standing for granted.
And to become a good force in La Liga, the home form is crucial. It becomes even more important when the superpower such as Real Madrid or Barcelona visit the Benito Villamarin. The hosts have to show that they are ready.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, have been struggling to say the least. They have already sacked the doomed Julen Lopetegui for too many uncanny results, with the 5-1 thumping at the hand of Barcelona in the El Clasico proving to be the final nail in the coffin.
With no viable and desired candidate available in the mid-season, the reigning European Champions decided to appoint Santiago Solari as a short-term cover.
However, the results have hardly improved. Besides the all-winning run to the FIFA Club World Cup, which they would have won in their dreams, the Los Blancos have been enduring too many setbacks.
Last time around, they lost 0-2 at home to Real Sociedad, which left them 10 points off the pace. The results need to improve fast or Madrid may find themselves fighting for the champions league places.
