Real Madrid: A frustrating start to the season with 16 shots to Real Sociedad’s six. It was just one of those games where they ball didn’t want to go in. The passing was superb, the chances were good, but the finishing wasn’t. Expect that to change in this one with early chances and sharper finishing.
Real Betis: A team with major defensive woes last season has done well to win possession and limit the chances of the opposing team. Doing that against Real Madrid will be difficult, and we will probably see the defense brought back down to earth. If they can win the possession again, they will have a chance, but Real’s speed on the wings will likely cause trouble. Defense first has to be the mentality.
Real get their first win on the season with Eden Hazard making the difference in the second half. Pick: Real Madrid 2, Real Betis 1
