Good afternoon everybody and welcome along to another MARCA in English live blog, this time taking you through the LaLiga Santander clash between Real Madrid and Real Betis at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid will be looking to keep up their perfect start to the league campaign, after three wins from three. This will be their first home match of the campaign after three victories on the road.
LaLiga allowed Los Blancos to play their opening matches away so they could make up some time on the redevelopment of the Bernabeu, and now the home faithful will be desperate to welcome their side home and celebrate their recent European successes.
But Madrid aren’t the only ones to have managed a perfect start, with Real Betis also having amassed three wins from three.
Quite strangely, the last three meetings between the sides at the Bernabeu have ended in 0-0 draws, so Real Madrid will be well aware that this will not be an easy afternoon.
Rodrygo starts for Real Madrid at the expense of Valverde. Rudiger and Kroos are on the bench.
Real Madrid XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Modric, Tchouameni, Camavinga; Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius.
