Real Betis – Real Madrid: the official line-ups


By: Manu Tournoux

Let’s go for a new day of La Liga on French Football Weekly! This Saturday, Real Madrid travels to Bétis Sevilla, at Benito Villamarin, for the 16th day of the 2023-2024 Spanish championship. A highly anticipated opposition from the Spanish capital after a more than encouraging start to the season on an accounting level. And for good reason, current leader of Liga, tied on points with the surprising formation of Girona (38pts), the Merengue club intends to ride on its current dynamic and thus string together a 14th meeting in all competitions without defeat. A good series that the Madrilenians hope to extend against Betis Sevilla, author of a contrasting start on the national scene. Seventh in the standings (25pts), Manuel Pellegrini’s men had a gloomy start to the season before recovering in recent weeks. The Verdiblancos remain on an impressive run of 10 games without defeat in La Liga but did not perform well last weekend on the pitch of bottom side Almeria, sharing the points (0-0).

This part will be followed live with live commentary on the French Football Weekly website from 4:15 p.m. For this new outing in La Liga, Carlo Ancelotti, deprived of several executives such as Thibaut Courtois, Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurélien Tchouaméni and Vinicius Jr following injuries, decided to opt for a tactical plan organized in 4 -4-1-1. Unsurprisingly, David Alaba is aligned in central defense with Antonio Rüdiger while Andriy Lunin keeps the goals. The midfield will be made up of Federico Valverde, Luka Modric, Brahim Diaz and Toni Kroos, supported by Jude Bellingham. Finally, Rodrygo will have the difficult task of guiding the Merengue attack by playing up front. As for the visitors, Manuel Pellegrini does not upset his plans following his recent results and aligns a 4-2-3-1 system. The attack will be led by the valuable Willian José, supported by the former resident of Casa Blanca and holder as number ten, Isco.
