It’s evident that Manchester City has solidified its position among football’s top tier, but Real Madrid still reign supreme in the game’s hierarchy. 

They recently dealt a blow to City by knocking them off their European champion pedestal and thwarting Pep Guardiola’s dream of a double treble.

Wednesday’s win is a stark reminder that Real Madrid is a force to be reckoned with. Even when facing a powerhouse like Guardiola’s City, underestimating or discounting Real Madrid is a mistake. 

It is crucial to acknowledge that if you are up against Real Madrid, you are automatically the underdog, regardless of your reputation or quality.

This was purely the essence on Wednesday as despite being dominated for much part of the game, Real Madrid managed to emerge triumphant, something that is still hard to believe, but for some, it was written in their destiny.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
