Competition: La Liga

Market: Real Betis draw no bet

Odds: 1/1 @ Pribet

Looking to make it three victories on the spin this weekend, Real Betis will travel to the Mendizorrotza on Sunday evening when they meet Alaves.

Starting with the hosts, while Alaves might have secured their La Liga return this season, El Glorioso have struggled to find any kind of top-flight stability since opening up the 2023/24 campaign. Last seen putting in another worrying performance on home soil as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Osasuna, Luis Garcia Plaza’s side find themselves tipped as a leading relegation contender this time around. Marking their return from September’s international break with a deserved 2-0 defeat against Rayo Vallecano, the Basque-based outfit have managed to muster just a single win from any of their previous four La Liga showdowns. Showing a string of issues since returning from the fortnight interval, Alavaes have quickly gained a reputation for their extended issues in the final third. In fact, Sunday’s hosts have registered just a single top-flight strike on their four-match winless rut. Looking like they could be destined for a bottom-three scrap this season, Plaza’s struggling squad could face another tricky test here.

As for the visitors, claiming a first Europa League victory earlier in the week as they claimed a 2-1 win against Sparta Prague, Manuel Pellegrini’s side will be smelling the chance to make another statement here. Opening October with a stellar performance as they cruised their way to a 3-0 victory against Valencia, the one-time Manchester City coach finds his side enjoying a four-match unbeaten run across all formats. With their sights set on mounting a genuine top-four charge this tome around, the Greens will also be excited by an eye-catching record against Sunday’s opponents. Including a 4-0 romp when they welcomed Alaves to the Estadio Benito Villamarin back in January 2022, Pellegrini’s men have suffered just a single defeat from any of their previous 10 straight showdowns against the early-season relegation scrappers. Two sides who are expected to be battling it out at opposite ends of the La Liga table, we are backing an away draw no bet this weekend.
