Real Madrid for this game with a snub, 3-1, in the move to the arena of Real Sociedad: Brahim Diaz scored the only goal of the team. Due to the irregular season he had, the Madrid club did not go beyond the third position in the qualifying table. In this home game, it is expected that coach Zinédine Zidane will play in the usual 4-3-3, privileging the circulation of the ball and slow attacks: Kroos is the main responsible for organizing and creating the offensive process. In addition, one of the great dangers is in the left wing of Real Madrid: Marco Asensio is a very fast and eximio player in the transport of the ball. The French Karim Benzema is the best score of Real Madrid, with 21 goals scored. For this game the coach can not count on Jesus Vallejo and Casemiro, both suspended.

Real Betis for this game with a triumph, 2-1, at the reception to Huesca, returning to the triumphs after five consecutive games without beating in this competition: the two goals of the team were marked by Joaquin. At this moment the club of Seville no longer fights for any objective this season. In this last game against Real Madrid, coach Quique Setién should opt for a very defensive strategy, exploring only the space in the back of the rival. Giovani Lo Celso is the great highlight of the visitors, with 9 goals scored. For this game the coach does not have Joaquin, suspended, and still has in doubt Canales and Barragan, these with physical problems.
