Real Betis vs Espanyol Match Preview
Espanyol have seen a somewhat more lenient schedule lately and they travel to Seville for their Matchday 35 clash at Real Betis on the back of a five-match unbeaten streak, which sees them sitting in the mid-table and nine points behind the La Liga’s top six.
RCDE have been held to draws by Levante (2-2) and Celta Vigo (1-1) in their last two outings and this could be more worrying for Rubi, as his men took the lead on both occasions but failed to materialise – with second-half goals conceded denying them more of a lifeline to the spots leading to UEFA competitions next term.
Real Betis sit behind the rivals only for their goal difference and could prove even more of a challenge despite their troubled spell of form. They come into the Monday’s clash with three consecutive losses and five in the last seven outings, struggling to cope with the tough schedule as Sevilla (3-2) and Valencia (1-2) snatched the points but the mid-week loss to Levante (4-0) could prove even more disappointing.
Indeed, Beticos have been all over the place at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia as an early opener from Campana changed the course of the match. Quique Setien will now hope he can find a quick fix and getting to home points here should prove a crucial task at this point.
We do feel they have what it takes and we’ll now back Real Betis to win at 23/20 with bet365, hoping to see them finally capitalize on the goals scored at Benito Villamarin and boost a challenge for the top six spots.
Still, we don’t see them Quique Setien’s men keeping a clean sheet and they could have to outgun the rivals to secure the points, as we now also go for a high-scoring contest with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/5 with bet365 – which looks a great approach to the fixture by itself.
