Deportivo La Coruña v Real Betis Betting Tips: Goals at both ends fancied at Riazor

Mar 06 2017

Although these two can breathe reasonably easy in terms of relegation, for now at least, neither are in a flattering position and both will be hoping to improve on this when they meet, in what will surely be seen as a winnable game by both, at Estadio Riazor on Wednesday night.

Betis and La Coruña have both followed a similar path this season and that is one of inconsistency. On their day, these two sides are both capable of mixing it with some of the better teams in this division – as some of their results show – but they’re often guilty of under-performing, while neither have been able to put together a decent run of results at any point.

From a betting point of view, the selection that really stands out here is ‘Both Teams to Score’. Despite being two of the lowest scoring sides in La Liga this season, when on their game, these two are both capable of causing the opposition problems and, given their respective defensive records, are both fancied to register on the score-sheet here.

In front of a home crowd this season, although not scoring quite as many as they’d like, Deportivo have only failed to find the net on three occasions. However, every time they have scored, they’ve tended to concede. In fact, the hosts have kept just one clean sheet when finding the net themselves with both teams scoring in seven of their 11 matches on home soil.

Scoring goals has been a bit of a problem for Betis on the road, they’ve found the net just 11 times and have failed to score in a rather large 45% of their away fixtures. However, in recent weeks, Víctor Sánchez’s side have perked up in this respect, scoring in each of their last four fixtures (six goals in total) and in each of their last two on their travels. Against a Depor side who’ve kept just two clean sheets at home this season, the visitors are likely to fancy their chances of continuing this scoring run.

The main problem for Betis this season has been their defending when playing away from home. The visitors are yet to keep a clean sheet on the road and have conceded a rather alarming 23 goals. With this in mind, the hosts – who’ve scored in both of their two matches under new manager Pepe Mel – really ought to be finding the net in this one.

All in all, it’s hard to fancy either of this pair to keep a clean sheet on Wednesday night and, therefore, at the prices, ‘Both Teams to Score’ is the bet to go for.
