Real Betis vs Real Madrid build-up & previous line-ups:
A sixth place finish last season equalled Real Betis’ best placement since they returned to La Liga action five years ago. Manuel Pellegrini’s men won 17 of their 38 league outings but have yet to win a match this season heading into matchday three. The club from Seville began their campaign with a 1-1 draw at Mallorca before achieving that same result against Cadiz the following week. In their previous five meetings with Real Madrid they’ve lost just once while picking up two wins and the same number of draws.
Real Madrid go into this weekend’s game having won on their last visits to Andalusia which equals the club’s longest winning streak against opponents from that province. Under returning head coach Carlo Ancelotti the 13-time European champions have collected four points from six available. Los Blancos couldn’t record back-to-back wins following their 1-4 win at Alaves on the opening weekend as they played out an entertaining 3-3 draw with Levante.
- Real Betis (vs Cádiz): Silva; Montoya, González, Ruiz, Miranda; Guardado, Canales; Sánchez, Fekir, Juanmi; Iglesias.
- Real Madrid (vs Levante): Courtois; Vázquez, Militão, Fernández, Alaba; Casemiro, Valverde, Isco; Bale, Benzema, Hazard.

Player to watch: Joaquín (Real Betis)
The legendary Manchester United manager Matt Busby once stated that if “you’re good enough, you’re old enough”, that statement essentially related to young players coming through, but it can also apply to those in the twilight of their years. And there’s no better example than Real Betis skipper and forward Joaquín who turned 40 last month. He’s fast approaching 600 league matches in Spain’s top division and Real Madrid are no strangers. Against no other opponent has Joaquín registered more assists in LaLiga than against (seven) and during those 29 meetings — while representing Valencia and Malaga as well as Betis — he’s also netted three goals with the most recent however coming in 2007.
