The last time these two sides met there were eight goals scored and we are backing another high scoring encounter in the city of Seville this weekend

Real Madrid travel to the Estadio Benito Villamarin on Sunday evening to face Real Betis in La Liga.

Santiago Solari's side were beaten 2-0 at home in the league last Sunday by Real Sociedad, but responded in midweek with a 3-0 victory over Leganes in the Copa del Rey.

Similarly, Betis remain one of the most unpredictable teams in the top flight as they were the first side win a league match at the Camp Nou in over two years in November, yet last week they became the first team to lose away to bottom side Huesca.

Latest odds

Betis have only been beaten twice at home in their last 15 league matches and bet365 price them at 11/5 (3.20) to claim a win.

Betis for their part are without centre-back Sidnei, while flying full-back Junior Firpo also looks set to miss out. Midfielder Takashi Inui is at the Asian Cup with Japan.

Preview

Betis' game is based on possession with Quique Setien's side only fractionally behind Barcelona at the top of La Liga's possession chart but still they are only its joint seventh top scorers, underlining a problem that they have in the final third.

However, they might fancy their chances of scoring against a Madrid side that have kept just one clean sheet on the road in their last 13 La Liga matches.
