Our match prediction:
Real Betis started this season as the underdog against Villarreal and managed to win a point while Real Madrid completely failed against Sporting Gijon with a 0-0 draw. With the huge pressure of the club and the media its important for Rafa Benitez to set a streak of good results in order to show the criticizers he's the man for the job. The defense of Real Betis will be under high pressure against Real Madrid which will be motivated to revenge their poor performance of last week. Madrid will need some new signings if they want to play a role in the Champions League.
