Our football match prediction:
Despite the fact that Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane could not count on several first-team regulars for Sunday’s football match against Real Sociedad, los Blancos picked up vital three points from the game. The title have already dropped four points at the start of the season and, no doubt, they are going to take Wednesday’s clash against Real Betis very seriously. Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo remain on the sidelines through suspension, but seeing that los Beticos are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that Zinedine Zidane’s troops are going to record their first home win of the season. Real Betis did well to beat Deportivo La Coruna at home at the weekend, but they were beaten in each of their first two away games of the season and, taking everything into account, home win appears on the horizon. In Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence, a man to watch in the home team will be Gareth Bale, who scored in the 3-1 win over Real Sociedad.
Highlighted Player (Kovacic):
Born to Croatian parents in Linz, Austria, Mateo Kovacic spent seven years in the LASK Linz youth academy before joining Dinamo Zagreb, where he showed a great deal of potential shortly after being promoted to the senior squad. The good return of 7 goals in 43 league appearances saw him secure a high-profile move to Inter Milan, where he acted as both holding midfielder and attacking midfielder, during the three years at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. And despite not exactly impressing in Italy, Kovacic was purchased by mighty Real Madrid, where he has been ever since. The youngster is widely regarded as one of Croatia’s most talented footballers at the moment and he has represented the country on international stage since the age of 19. In just three years he managed to make over 25 appearances for the national team, playing at the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016 finals for Vatreni. Kovavic has yet to be given a real chance to impress at Real Madrid, but he has entire future ahead of him.
