Skysports 1: Sat 19.00 & 21.00: Real Betis should make Real Madrid work and Mourinho’s men are 10/3 (Ladbrokes) to win by 1 goal.
Real Madrid are 9/20 (Sportingbet) to record an 11th straight La Liga win (and a 21st in 22 league games) away to Real Betis and short odds backers may be eyeing that price with interest but punters should perhaps look to a tight win.
Nobody can question Real Madrid’s goal-scoring prowess at home but on the road things are slightly tougher. They have now won the last three away games by just one goal (and five of the last seven) so it stands that Ladbokes 10/3 about a Madrid win by one is a good punt. Blue Square offer 8/1 for a 1-0 Madrid victory while Cristiano Ronaldo, in lively form of late, is 11/5 with Paddy Power to score first.
Sevilla finally turned their poor away record around with a good win at Valencia and Blue Square make them 13/10 to take another three points at struggling Sporting Gijon. William Hill are 10/11 for both teams to score while a 2-1 win for Sevilla is 17/2 at Coral.
