Real Betis vs Real Madrid Kick Off Time
NAME: Real Betis – Real Madrid
DATE: 5 Mar 2023
TIME: 20:00 UTC
VENUE: Benito Villamarin, Seville, Spain
Real Madrid will be aiming to bounce back from Thursday’s defeat in El Clasico when they continue their La Liga campaign away to Real Betis on Sunday night.
Los Blancos lost 1-0 to Barcelona in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final last time out, while Real Betis will enter the match off the back of a 3-2 victory at Elche in the league on February 24.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side were involved in a five-goal thriller with Elche last Friday, with the Green and Whites coming from two goals behind to win 3-2, Willian Jose netting the final goal of the contest in the fifth minute of additional time at the end of the 90.
Real Betis are currently fifth in the table, two points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid and just three behind third-placed Real Sociedad, while they are crucially six points ahead of seventh-placed Villarreal.
Pellegrini’s team will certainly be eyeing a top-four finish in La Liga this season, but they could also qualify for next season’s Champions League through the Europa League.
The Green and Whites have been drawn against Manchester United in the last-16 stage of the competition, with the first leg between the two teams set to take place at Old Trafford next Thursday.
Real Betis’ immediate focus will be on the league, though, as they aim to beat Real Madrid in Spain’s top flight for the first time since March 2020.
Real Madrid have already overcome Real Betis this season, running out 2-1 winners at Bernabeu back in September, so they will be bidding to do the league double over the Seville outfit this weekend.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side were held to a 1-1 draw by Atletico Madrid in the league last Saturday, but they are only seven points off division leaders Barcelona, who surprisingly lost 1-0 at Almeria last Sunday.
Real Madrid will know that they cannot afford many more slip-ups if they are to catch Barcelona at the summit, while the capital outfit have serious work to do in the Copa del Rey, having lost 1-0 to Xavi’s side in the first leg of their semi-final at Bernabeu on Thursday night.
