Real Madrid vs Real Betis Live

Real Madrid bring a below-par season to a close against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday.

Los Blancos have had little to play for for several weeks with Barcelona romping to the title and that 4-1 humbling by Ajax in March ending hopes of a fourth successive Champions League title.

As a result the returning Zinedine Zidane, Real’s third coach of the season, has already begun experimenting with his squad ahead of next campaign with a significant clear out expected this summer.

Real Betis also have little to play for having failed to improve on their sixth place finish last season, with Quique Setien’s side realistically unable to finish any higher than 10th.

In the United Kingdom (UK), the game can be watched live on Premier Sports 1 and streamed live on Eleven Sports.

Keylor Navas picks up a rare start in goal for the hosts today, in what could be his last game, while they also field a handful of fringe players with the season almost over.

Gareth Bale however is forced to make do with starting from the bench.

Potential Real Madrid starting XI: Navas; Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo; Valverde, Llorente, Modric; Diaz, Vinicius Jr, Benzema.

Real Betis will be without Sergio Canales and Antonio Barragan through injury while Joaquin is suspended.

Potential Real Betis starting XI: Lopez; Francis, Mandi, Feddal, Bartra; Firpo, Carvalho, Guardado, Kaptoum, Lo Celso; Loren.

There’s no disguising the fact it has been a disappointing season for Real Madrid, with just a World Club Championship to show for their efforts and a second successive third-place finish in La Liga already guaranteed.

The side never seemed to recover from the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo last summer and it seems a major overhaul of the squad will take place at the end of the season, with Chelsea’s Eden Hazard high on their wishlist.

Their campaign was effectively ended in the space of seven days at the end of February, with defeat by Barcelona in the Copa del Rey followed up by defeat to the same opposition in La Liga and that now infamous 4-1 thrashing by Ajax in the Champions League.

Coach Santiago Solari was sacked a few days later, with Zidane brought back for a second spell in charge to begin the rebuilding job.
