Algerian duo Aissa Mandi and Ryad Boudebouz face European powerhouse Real Madrid this Sunday in La Liga, with kick-off at 7.45pm in Andalucia.
Real Betis are currently 8th in the Spanish league table; just four places and nine points behind their opponents Real Madrid who have really struggled domestically this campaign.
Zinedine Zidane’s team will be in high spirits following their Champions League victory over Paris Saint-Germain, but they did lose at home at the Bernabeu this season to Betis who can now complete the double over them.
Hosts Betis also come into the match with a win, after securing a win in Deportivo La Coruna last Monday where central defender Mandi kept a clean sheet.
The match represents a brilliant opportunity for Mandi and Boudebouz to play against one of the best teams in the world, as well as one of the best managers on the planet.
Betis are fighting for a place in the Europa League, whereas reigning champions Real Madrid are battling it out for a finish in the top four.
The eyes of the world will be on the Algerian pair, and you can follow live updates of the match on the DZ Football twitter account; @DZFootball_en.
