The Santiago Bernabeu opens its doors for the first time this season with a high-level duel. The two teams that currently lead the championship, Real Madrid and Betis, the only ones to have achieved full victories in the first three days, meet at the Whites’ fiefdom starting at 4:15 p.m. Ancelotti has decided to make several changes with an eye on the team’s debut in the Champions League, next Tuesday against Celtic in Glasgow. Camavinga and Rodrygo enter the starting eleven, from which Kroos and Valverde fall. For its part, Betis wants to extend its streak of five visits to the Bernabeu by adding points and stay at the top of the table. Pellegrini, already with all the players registered, comes out with the gala eleven in which this summer’s signing, Luiz Felipe, will be for the first time.
