Competition: La Liga
Market: Real Betis win
Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport
Looking to extend their Champions League charge this weekend, Real Betis will make the trip to the Ciutat de València on Sunday afternoon when they meet Levante.
Starting with the hosts, enduring what has been a nightmare campaign at the Ciutat de València this season, Levante are freefalling their way out of La Liga. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat rock-bottom of the table and chasing a huge 12-point deficit, the Frogs are also coming off the back of another woeful display. Blown away earlier in the month and hit with a 3-0 drumming against Getafe on the road, the Valencia-based outfit have lost five of their last six matchups across all formats, a run that stems all the way back to a 0-0 stalemate against Osasuna on December 5th. With their recent issues highlighted by a 5-0 drumming at the hands of Villarreal last month, Levante have also continued to struggle on home soil. Losing three of their last four outings at the Ciutat de València, Alessio Lisci’s men should be bracing themselves for a tough test here.
As for the visitors, managing to make an immediate return to winning ways last time out and grabbing a 2-1 win away at Rayo Vallecano, the mood in Real Betis’ camp should be at a real high. Booking their spot in the final of this year’s Copa del Rey, Los Verdiblancos also find themselves sat in pole position to book a shock Champions League spot. Making the trip to Levante this weekend sat as high as third in the table, former West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has seen his side now win five of their last six matchups across all formats. Looking to lay down another marker when they make the trip to the Ciutat de València on Sunday, it should be noted that Betis hold an eye-catching record against the leading relegation scrappers. Claiming a 3-1 romp when they met Levante for their reverse meeting back in November, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
