Portugalete vs Real Betis Match Preview

Portugalete beat 2nd tier strugglers Extremadura (1-0) with a single goal from in-form Adrian Guemes to make their way to the 2nd Round, now hosting Real Betis for their Copa del Rey clash in hope they can build on the success with another fine performance and an upset in front of the home fans.

Ezequiel Loza’s men beat Pasaia KE (4-0) with confidence last week and earned their third win in four outings at La Florida Stadium, a streak only interrupted with a 1-1 draw against Santutxu. They’ve been solid at the back and will now surely want a similar approach on Saturday afternoon.

Real Betis have been far from convincing but they still come as heavy favourites to snatch a ticket to the 3rd Round, travelling on the back of a 1-1 draw earned at Alaves and extending a streak of five away games without a loss. They kept two clean sheets along the way and this promises a narrow contest now as well.

Beticos outclassed Antoniano (0-4) in 1st Round as Tello, Kaptoum, Laniez, and Alex Melendez all made it on the scoresheet. However, a trip to Basque Country should prove more of a challenge and we don’t feel it will be as smooth sailing as they would have wished this time around.

We still feel the visitors will make their way past the 4th tier rivals with confidence and we’ll now back them to a win to Nil, which comes off as the best approach to the fixture in Portugalete – despite Beticos’ struggles for consistency seen over the past month.

We are sticking our necks out for Portugalete to show off as a tougher defensive outfit, though, and we hope not to see a very one-sided game on Saturday. With that in mind, we’re looking at this as a low-scoring contest in the making and backing Under 2.5 Goals FT.
