Real Betis vs Espanyol Match Preview
Real Betis host Espanyol for the return match of their Copa del Rey clash on Wednesday evening looking to capitalize on 1-1 draw snatched in the first leg, as Tony Sanabria netted a late equalizer to say his farewell ahead of a loan move to Genoa.
Beticos have seen a narrow 1-0 loss at Athletic Bilbao since then but they’ll hope their rediscovered goalscoring form at home ground (in a thriller 3-2 win over Girona beforehand) will be enough to make their way past the Barcelona rivals.
Espanyol will obviously have plans of their own but they’ve been just as unpredictable lately, with a 2-4 loss to Real Madrid now behind them. They’ve thus failed to win in any of their last three outings with a thrashing 3-0 loss at Eibar also seen since mid-January, which will set the alarms off as RCDE sit in the immediate danger zone.
Periquitos will now want to lift their team spirits with Cup success but making it happen at Benito Villamarin will be no easy task, as Betis continue to base their success across competitions on very solid performances at this ground.
We will back Betis to keep it up midway through the week and we’ll stick with them to make their way to the semi-finals with a win priced at 10/11 with Betfair. We’ve seen them confident in the final third here and hope they can now keep it up against Espanyol.
However, they could need all they can get up front as we hope for a high-scoring contest with Over 2.5 Goals FT at Evens with BetVictor. Espanyol have nothing of a goalless draw and will have to go for a goal, which should leave open spaces at the back and promises an exciting clash.
