Real Madrid hooked by Real Betis has undoubtedly said goodbye to the title!


Following FC Barcelona’s 1-0 victory against Valencia CF in the afternoon, Real Madrid found themselves relegated to 10 lengths behind their eternal rival. As a result, the Merengues absolutely had to beat Real Betis Balompié for the 24th day in order to regain hope. For this match, the Verdiblancos opted for a traditional 4-2-3-1 with Claudio Bravo as the last bastion behind Youssouf Sabaly, German Pezzella, Luiz Felipe and Juan Mirando. Guido Rodriguez and William Carvalho made up the double pivot. Alone up front, Borja Iglesias was supported by Aitor Ruibal, Rodri and Ayoze Perez. For its part, Real Madrid was articulated in 4-3-3 with Thibaut Courtois in the cages. In front of him, Lucas Vazquez, Eder Militao, Antonio Rüdiger and Eduardo Camavinga formed the defense. Aurélien Tchouaméni was placed as a sentry with Federico Valverde and Toni Kroos. Finally, Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Junior accompanied Karim Benzema in attack.
