Competition: La Liga
Market: Real Betis double chance
Odds: 8/11 @ Bet 365
Looking to extend on what has been a stellar run of form before closing for the Christmas break, Real Betis will welcome Atletico Madrid to the Estadio Benito Villamarín on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, putting another rampant display to book their spot in the third round of this year’s Copa del Rey in midweek, Real Betis have shocked many in Spain with what has quickly become a stellar resurge. On the verge of breaking into the top half of the La Liga standings, Head Coach Rubi has seen his men win four of their last five and are in the midst of an unbeaten run that stems back to the start of November. With the mood around the Estadio Benito Villamarín the highest it has been over the past 12 months, Betis have bagged at least a pair of goals in each of their previous five appearances and will be confident of causing an upset this weekend.
As for the visitors, while Atletico may have managed to land back-to-back 2-0 wins over Osasuna and Russian outfit Lokomotiv Moscow nearing closer to Christmas, it does not cover what has been a real inconsistent patch. Opening the weekend outside the top-four and someway off mounting a title charge, there is no doubt that Head Coach Diego Simeone will be most concerned by his side’s continued struggles outside of the capital. Los Colchoneros have remarkably failed to win any of their last seven matches away from the Wanda Metropolitano, a run that stems back to the 1st of November. It should also be noted that the last time Atletico faced off against Betis back in February, Sunday’s hosts came away with a 1-0 victory.
