Real Betis vs Espanyol: Predictions and Betting Tips
Betis achieved their first win of the season in their last match against Granada, with a score line of 2-1, playing as visitors. A spectacular goal in the 89th minute that saw Sergio Canales dribble past half of the Granada team sealed the victory.
Despite finishing sixth last season, Betis conceded 50 goals in 38 games, a figure that is far too high for a team of their stature. Thus far, the Andalusian side do not seem to have improved much on their defensive play, as it remains the weakest part of their game this season as well.
Betis have now gone seven games in a row without defeat against Espanyol, comprising three wins and four draws.
The return to La Liga has not been easy for Espanyol, and in four games they have yet to record a win, tallying instead two draws and two defeats.
A lack of goals is taking its toll on Espanyol, and in the last five games they have only scored one goal. This is particularly surprising, because they have better strikers than many other teams in La Liga, with players like Raul De Tomas, Adrian Embarba or Nico Melamed.
- Two wins, two draws, and one defeat for Real Betis in their last five games
- Betis have conceded at least one goal in all of their last five games
- Five consecutive matches without winning for Espanyol, comprising two draws and three defeats
- Espanyol have only scored one goal in their last five games
Real Betis vs Espanyol Predictions
Betis come into this game in good form after winning their last game, and they are playing this game at home, which is an extra advantage for them. Furthermore, Espanyol are not looking too good at the moment, and are lacking goals. The signs suggest that Betis will win this match.
