Competition: La Liga
Market: Real Betis win
Odds: 19/20 @ 888sport
Hoping to potentially break into the top-four on Wednesday night, Real Betis will welcome Valencia to the Estadio Benito Villamarín in midweek.
Starting with the hosts, while Real Betis would have been hugely frustrated to have entered October’s international break with a 2-0 defeat against Villarreal, they have bounced back in an eye-catching fashion. Securing themselves a European return last season after an impressive campaign under former West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini, Los Verdiblancos could be looking to go one step further this time around. Eventually claiming an action-packed 3-2 win against Rayo Vallecano at the Estadio Benito Villamarín, Betis should be smelling a real chance on Wednesday night. Appearing to be on route to securing their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League, the midweek hosts have collected 12 points from their last five La Liga contests. Likewise, continuing on from last season, Betis have lost just one of their last 13 top-flight fixtures on home soil.
As for the visitors, involved in a real thriller at the Mestalla on Saturday as they managed to snatch a stunning last-gasp point against Mallorca, there is no doubt that José Bordalás’ side will be desperate to build off of that result. However, while the Bats might have found a route back into the top-half of the La Liga table, it does not cover what has been an extended blip. Suffering a 3-1 defeat away at an inconsistent Barcelona last week, Los murciélagos have failed to win any of their last six contests, a run that stems all the way back to September 12th. Knowing that they could face a stern test when they make the trip to the Estadio Benito Villamarín on Wednesday, Valencia have shown some worrying issues on the road. Picking up just a single point on their travels from their last three attempts, we’re backing a home victory here.
