Top of the league and sailing Real Madrid could have barely dreamt of a better start to their La Liga defence. Smoother, surely, but all’s well that ends well.

They have cruised past Almeria, Celta Vigo, and mostly recently Espanyol, scoring a league-high eight goals so far.

After three away games on the trot, Real Madrid will finally get the chance to open the doors to the new Santiago Bernabeu as they host Real Betis on Saturday.

Betis are the only other team with a perfect record in the league this term, but one or both of them will have to compromise tomorrow.

Heading into the game, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is reinforced by Nacho’s services who missed the Espanyol outing.

Jesus Vallejo and Alvaro Odriozola are still out injured, but Lucas Vazquez and Daniel Carvajal are both included in the squad.

The rest of the squad is available for the game, with all eyes on Karim Benzema, who has three goals and an assist to his name already. Marco Asensio and Mariano Diaz, who were linked with deadline day exits but stayed, are also part of the squad.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique has asked for patience regarding Kylian Mbappe’s future, saying that everyone must wait for the player and PSG to make an official announcement.

Now that the Ligue 1 team has qualified for the UEFA Champions League semi-final, the player is rightly expected to focus on the continental glory, keeping aside his impending move to Real Madrid.

Speaking after his side’s 4-1 win over Barcelona in the UCL quarter-final, Enrique said that he cannot comment on anything unless Mbappe himself releases a statement.

“Let’s wait for Kylian to speak about his future. When Mbappe and PSG will speak in public, we will see,” said Enrique as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“It’s like a process. Until Mbappe goes and speaks in public, I’m just here waiting and staying silent,” he added.

What’s going on with Mbappe?

Mbappe’s time with PSG is coming to an end as his contract expires this season, and if reports are to be believed, he has chosen to depart as a free agent.

Reports suggest he is set to join Real Madrid, with rumours of a contract already in place.

Now, it was suggested that PSG’s elimination from the Champions League could have hastened the process, potentially bringing Mbappe’s move to Madrid closer. 

However, their qualification for the semi-final, and the chance of facing Real Madrid in the final, mean any official announcement will likely be delayed.

As for the player, he revealed after the match that his future will not change even if PSG go on to win the UEFA Champions League. 

“Playing for the team from my country’s capital is very special, I dreamed of these play-offs when I came to PSG. It’s a great day for the club,” said the forward.
