Competition: La Liga
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 7/10 @ Bet 365
Suddenly skyrocketing up the La Liga standings, European chasers Villarreal will make the trip to an empty Estadio Benito Villamarín on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, putting in another sluggish display and hit with a 4-2 hammering against Levante on the road over the weekend, Real Betis find themselves in the midst of a real struggle since returning from the enforced break. Picking up just four points in their five June contests, Los Verdiblancos have failed to build off of their stunning 2-1 win against league leaders Real Madrid prior to the break. While Alexis Trujillo’s men might be continuing to struggle with some rather glaring issues at the back, Wednesday’s hosts are unbeaten in their last four La Liga contests at the Estadio Benito Villamarín. It is also worth highlighting that four of Betis’ last five matchups on home soil have seen both teams find the net by the final whistle.
As for the visitors, picking up a thumping 2-0 win against Valencia on the weekend, Villarreal find themselves in the midst of a real purple patch. Skyrocketing up to fifth and in pole position to secure a European return, the Yellow Submarine are unbeaten in their five La Liga matchups since return from the enforced break, collecting four wins on that stellar run. With the mood in their camp at a season-high and really starting to shine in the final third, Villarreal should also be boosted by their most recent meeting against Wednesday’s hosts. When the two sides faced off earlier in the season, Javier Calleja’s men landed a thumping 5-1 win and will make the trip to Betis confident of making another statement in midweek.
Bet: Both teams to score at Real Betis vs Villarreal 7/10 for Wednesday’s La Liga showdown @ Bet 365
