Competition: La Liga
Market: Isco over 0.5 shots on target
Odds: 7/10 @ 1xBet
Hoping to skyrocket their way into the top-six, Real Betis will travel to the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla when they meet Cadiz on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Cadiz might have managed to snatch consecutive 0-0 stalemates against Villarreal and Athletic Bilbao, the Yellow Submarine still find themselves tipped as a leading relegation contender in 2024. Opening Friday’s showdown sat three points adrift of La Liga safety, Mauricio Pellegrino appears to have a real job on his hands. In fact, on what has become an infamous top-flight rut, the Andalusia-based outfit have remarkably failed to win any of their previous 19 straight La Liga appearances – a run that stems all the way back to September 1st. Likewise, failing to win any of their last eight showdowns at the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla, Cadiz have also gained a reputation for their extended issues in the final third. Along with failing to find the net in any of their previous three La Liga outings, Friday’s hosts have also draw a blank in five of their last six appearances.
As for the visitors, missing out on what they had billed as a real opportunity last weekend as they had to settle for a 1-1 stalemate against Getafe, Real Betis will be seeking an immediate response here. However, while Manuel Pellegrini’s side might still be dreaming of the chance to book another top-six finish, they do have the feel of a squad seeking some recent stability. Crashing out of the Copa del Rey last month following a 1-0 defeat against Alaves, the former West Ham boss has seen his squad win just a pair of their previous 10 appearances across all competitions. If Betis are to break back into the European places on Friday night, then they will be calling on the red-hot Isco to spearhead their charge here. Once again finding the net against Getafe last week, the former Real Madrid superstar has bagged four goals in as many domestic appearances.
