BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Sunday evening, it’s Real Betis vs Celta Vigo at the Estadio Benito Villamarin, as the home team look to continue their challenge for the top-four spots in La Liga.
Manuel Pellegrini’s team have been one of the surprise packages in the Spanish top-flight this season, as the Andalusians currently sit third place in the table. They are five points clear of fifth-place Atletico Madrid.
A 3-2 defeat at Athletic Bilbao last time out in La Liga ended a four-game winning run in the Spanish top-flight. The game followed a familiar high-scoring trend for Betis, as four of their last five league games have produced over 2.5 goals.
Real Betis have been in good form on home soil in La Liga of late, winning five of their last six matches at the Benito Villamarin.
The visitors are 14th place in the table, nine points adrift of La Liga’s top-five and five points clear of the relegation zone. Eduardo Coudet’s team has been inconsistent of late in La Liga. However, a record of just two wins in their last eight league games is a poor one. Last time out, they recorded a 3-1 home win over Espanyol.
Celta are unbeaten in four away matches in La Liga, having recorded two victories and picking up two draws. A key to the recent decent away form is strong defensive displays, as the visitors have conceded just once in their last four matches on their travels in the Spanish top-flight.
Neither team have any reported injury problems, so both should have fully fit squads to choose from.
We are backing Real Betis to record another victory in a high-scoring game to maintain their position in La Liga’s top-four.
