Valencia is in a bad shape. At the home of Real Sociedad, they played for 70 minutes with one player more, despite everything they did not manage to come away victorious, with the 1-1 final clearly leaving them disappointed. The team conceded a goal in the 10th minute, equalized 15 minutes later, was in control against the home team’s ten players. They also had three great chances, but for another night they do not convince with their performance. Five consecutive matches without a win with 0-3-2, it is in the middle of the standings with 16 points, however, it does not look capable of anything more. Cavani is doubtful for the match against Betis, as he is suffering from discomfort.
Betis remains in the top five, not even now managing to win the big derby against Sevilla. Ten matches in a row against their great rival without a win, despite the fact that this year Sevilla is still fighting for survival but manage to got the result. In a match that saw Betis down to nine men and Sevilla down to ten, it was the hosts who opened the scoring in the 38th minute, Sevilla equalized in the 81st minute and flirted with an upset in the finale. They saw Bilbao make it to 24, that’s where Atlético Madrid is. Punished the very important Fekir and Iglesias, who were expelled.
Betis goes with two very crucial absences. Fekir is the mastermind of this team, Iglesias has scored eight goals so far. Betis certainly has the quality to get something out of the game especially against a Valencia side that seems to be suffering and waiting for the break to regroup. We’ll see if they succeed. Goal/Goal looks like a safer option at odds of 1.87 (TigersBet).
