Real Betis will play hosts to Real Madrid at the Benito Villamarin when the two sides lock horns for gameweek 24 of La Liga.

The last few clashes between these two sides have resulted in entertaining matches for the neutral, and with Manuel Pellegrini’s side pushing for top four, it becomes all the more interesting for everyone following La Liga.

Madrid have no margin for error, and will hope their 22-man travelling squad can get the job done in Sevilla.

Luka Modric is suspended after the accumulation of yellow cards and will not be a part of the trip to Betis’ home. This weekend of rest for the Croatian could be critical for Madrid as the schedule gets tougher.

David Alaba and Ferland Mendy are still injured, and will likely not return until early to mid April. Nacho and Eduardo Camavinga have been taking shifts to play as Los Blancos‘ left-back in their absence.

Alvaro Rodriguez is also travelling with the team after scoring the equaliser against Atletico Madrid in the league last weekend.

Following a solid end to his debut campaign at Real Madrid, Arda Guler is all set to play a key part for Turkey at the UEFA Euro 2024.

The 19-year-old wonderkid struggled with injuries during the first half of the last season at Real Madrid but eventually made the most of his chances towards the final phase of the campaign.

All in all, Guler finished the 2023/24 season with a tally of six goals from 12 matches, winning La Liga, Spanish Super Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.

Ahead of their Euro opener against Georgia next week, Turkey manager Vincenzo Montella gave an insight into how he plans to use the Real Madrid youngster – whether as a starter or from the bench, and his position.

“Arda generally played on the right wing in both Fenerbahçe and Real Madrid. If he played alone, he could be number ten, but for now, he seems to be closer to playing on the right wing,” said Montella (h/t Sporx).

On whether Guler is ready to start in the major European tournament, he added: “The most important thing is to be able to establish balance well. He played well in the last match, and we have the desire to start with him. However, I am still in the decision stage.”

So far, Guler has made seven appearances for the Turkish national team, in which he has netted one goal. And, he will be looking forward to adding to that tally at the Euros, whether he starts as a right-winger or a No. 10.
