WHEN AND WHERE?
Venue: Santiago Bernabeu.
Date: Saturday, September 3rd, 2022.
Victor Camarasa and Martin Montoya are still receiving medical attention, but German Pezzella is no longer able to play because of the red card he received against Osasuna the previous time around.
At the back, Luiz Felipe is expected to take the place of Pezzella. Further forward, Rodri might be replaced by Sergio Canales.
Due to fitness issues, Real Madrid was without Nacho, Alvaro Odriozola, and Jesus Vallejo against Espanyol. However, these players might be ready for this game.
In addition to Rodrygo, who is competing for a spot on the right side of the front three, Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy are anticipated to return to the starting lineup.
However, considering his defensive prowess and the fact that Ancelotti will undoubtedly be concerned of the threat that Real Betis can pose, Federico Valverde may just receive the nod once more.
With Casemiro leaving the team, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, and Aurelien Tchouameni should once again be joined in central midfield by Antonio Rudiger, Lucas Vazquez, and Aurelien Tchouameni.
Real Madrid predicted XI vs Real Betis: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Kroos, Tchouameni, Modric; Valverde, Benzema, Vinicius.
