Real Madrid will have one of the most complicated matches of the year this Saturday when they visit Benito Villamarín against Betis for the match corresponding to the sixteenth day of LaLiga EA Sports. In the spectacular fight they have with Girona tied on points, Carlo Ancelotti's team is risking remaining the leader without depending on the Catalans.
The big news of the day for the Madrid fans will undoubtedly be the foreseeable return of Luka Modric to the playing fields after his injury, who could even start depending on the latest feelings he gives Ancelotti in training.
For his part, Jude Bellingham seems to be able to fit into the white team's plans, despite his recent discomfort. In addition to the rest of the long-term injuries, Real Madrid will also not be able to count on Dani Carvajal, who was injured in the last game against Granada.
For Betis, their duel against Real Madrid could serve to catapult them into the fight to enter European positions and say goodbye to some insufficient results in recent days, such as the last goalless draw against Almería at home.
Ancelotti knows well that it is not easy to conquer Villamarín, since in the previous season the whites could not win their match on Andalusian lands and ended up drawing 0-0 in a duel that took them even further away from the League title.
The match between Real Betis and Real Madrid, corresponding to the sixteenth day of LaLiga EA Sports, will be played this Saturday, December 9, at 4:15 p.m. at the Benito Villamarín stadium. The match can be seen on television on Movistar and can also be followed live through the La Vanguardia website.
