Why you should back Real Madrid

Real Madrid have the second-best goal differential at plus-29, and a big reason for that is forward Karim Benzema. In 14 starts, he has 11 goals and two assists. He has taken 40 shots, including 24 on net. He had a pair of goals against Liverpool in a 5-2 win in the Champions League Round of 16 on Feb. 21. Benzema has had a long history of success with the side, scoring 230 goals in 14 seasons.

In addition, midfielder Federico Valverde helps power the squad. In 20 La Liga starts this season, he has scored seven times and assisted on two other goals. He has 17 shots on goal and 33 in all. In five seasons with the Los Blancos, he has 12 goals in 127 matches. 

Why you should back Real Betis

Although Real Betis will be without forward Nabil Fekir, who suffered a ruptured ligament in his last match, and midfielder Paul Akouokou, they will still feature plenty of firepower. Forward Borja Iglesias has a team-high 10 goals and four assists in 19 starts. The 30-year-old has been a fixture with Real Betis for the past four years. In 117 appearances, Iglesias has 34 goals.

Also helping the offense will be forward Jimenez Juanmi. The 29-year-old Spaniard signed a five-year deal with Betis in 2019 and, after a slow start due to injury, he has made 69 appearances and scored 23 goal. He had 16 goals last season in 33 matches.
