Real Betis vs Atletico Madrid: Predictions and Betting Tips
Atletico is playing for the league title but Betis also have their objectives. The Andalusians need to win to qualify directly for the Europa League, as they have Villarreal and Real Sociedad putting them under pressure.
Betis is the sixth best home side so far, the problem is that against the big teams they are a team incapable of winning, from what we have seen so far this season.
Another problem for Betis is that for a team in the top half of the table they have conceded far too many goals, 42 goals in 29 games.
Atletico goes into this tough match with one eye on the Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona. If Atletico wins their game, whatever happens in the other game, they will pull away from one of them.
Los Colchoneros have gone from 12 points ahead of Barça at one point to just one point behind them right now. Let’s see if the nervousness and pressure don’t affect them between now and the end of the season.
More bad news is that he will not be able to count on important players such as Luis Suarez, Llorente, Joao Felix or Carrasco.
- Four of the last five games of Atleti ended with under 2.5 total goals
- Betis has won four of their last five home games
- Atletico is the third best away team for now (With one less game)
- Atletico has only conceded ten goals in 14 away games
Real Betis vs Atletico Madrid Predictions
Although Atletico is not at their best, we think they are still a strong team and a very reliable away team. The absence of important players in attack will be a problem, but in defense (their most important pillar) they will be the same as always.
The absence of Luis Suarez, Llorente and Joao (35 goals between them, Atletico has scored 51 goals in total). means that the game loses a lot of attacking football, so we think that if Atleti wins, it will be by a small margin.
