Storylines

Real Madrid: Beating Barcelona was a great response to the losses against Manchester City and Levante, but now it’s all about building on it. They’ve got a tricky schedule coming up and have to take care of the games they are expected to win because Barcelona likely will. The big question is whether they can overcome their injuries, like Eden Hazard’s ankle problem, to keep the league title within their sights. 

Real Betis: No wins in their last five has derailed what was expected to be a promising season. This team has a lot of talent and has brought in quality players, but rarely are they on the same page. That has resulted in the team winning just seven of its 26 league games so far and putting the club in danger of relegation if the form doesn’t improve. Against a team like Real Madrid, they must focus on defense and try to squeeze out a point.
