Espanyol vs Real Betis Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Espanyol were able to manage a 1-1 away draw against Real Sociedad in the recent league match. The away team had a major positive element after opening the scoring inside the opening 10 minutes through Leo Baptistao. For long periods of the game, Real Sociedad were frustrated but they grabbed the equaliser in the 69th minute through Illarramendi. Espanyol went on to get a goalless draw with Tenerife in the Copa del Rey. Real Betis used home advantage effectively and claimed a 2-0 win over Deportivo Alaves. Antonio Sanabria’s good form continued with the forward opening the scoring in the 13th minute, while an own goal from Alexis made sure of three points for Real Betis.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Espanyol have an excellent recent record against Real Betis after managing three wins in the last four meetings. The head-to-head meetings at the RCDE Stadium has seen Real Betis manage just one win in the last five visits. It is likely to expect more of the same with Espanyol winning two out of the last three matches at the RCDE Stadium. I would go with a win for Espanyol. Real Betis have been a strong attacking team at the start of the season. Despite a mediocre away record, the team has failed to score only once in the last four away games. Espanyol have kept just one clean sheet at home in four games. I see value in backing this game to witness both teams to score.

Espanyol win – 23/20

Both teams to score – 7/10

Espanyol saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Real Betis have not conceded a goal in 70% of their last 10 games played

Espanyol Preview

Espanyol are able to remain in touching distance of the top 10 places after managing to recover from a mediocre run of form at the start of the season. The club still are not convincing enough in terms of victories, as Quique Flores has seen his team manage only two wins in the nine matches. Unsurprisingly, both victories have been at the RCDE Stadium were Espanyol continue to remain strong. The team has picked up just three points from a possible 15 on the road. Gerard Moreno and Leo Baptistao have scored three goals each.

Espanyol Team News

Adrian Lopez (meniscus) is the only player unavailable for injury at Espanyol.

Real Betis Preview

Real Betis have made the most of home games so far this season, as the team are now up to seventh in the table after a string of five wins in the four games at home. At the same time, Real Betis have also struggled when it comes to away matches after managing only one win in four. The team has been one of the top scorers in the La Liga 2017-18 season – aside from the established top clubs like Barcelona and Real Madrid. Betis have been able to score 19 in the first nine matches of the season, although the team has so far been let down by a defence that has conceded 17 goals – the third highest in the table. Antonio Sanabria is the leading scorer at the club with six goals.

Real Betis Team News

Riza Durmisi (hamstring), Christian Tello (discomfort), and Zou Feddal (discomfort) are the players unavailable for injury.
