Real Betis vs Real Sociedad Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Real Betis managed a relatively comfortable 2-0 win over Levante to remain in contention for a Europa League spot. Chema failed in his acrobatics to clear the ball off the line and ended up scoring an own goal in the 55th minute to give Real Betis the lead. Sergio Leon latched onto a simple long ball from the goalkeeper to score in the 69th minute. Levante came closest through Jefferson Lerma, whose effort was cleared off the line. Real Sociedad lost 2-1 against Valencia during the weekend. Santi Mina’s first-half goal provided the hosts with a decisive lead, but Mikel Oyarzabal equalised a few minutes after the break. Santi Mina’s second goal of the evening provided a win for Valencia.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The Real Betis outfit are without a victory over Real Sociedad in the last four attempts, but the last victory for the Beticos in meetings against this opponent came at the Benito Villamarin. Home advantage will be a significant factor for a Real Betis outfit now challenging for the top six places. Real Betis have been on a good run and I would back the home team to win the match. Sergio Leon is now the top scorer at Real Betis with nine goals and his recent form has been good with goals in his last two appearances. The 29-year-old also scored in his last two games against Real Sociedad. I would back Sergio Leon to score anytime.

Real Betis win – 9/5

Sergio Leon to score anytime – 11/8

Real Betis have not conceded a goal in 60% of their last 10 games played

Real Betis Preview

Real Betis did extremely well to get an away victory against Levante, and it happens to be a significant boost to the hopes of finishing in the top six. Sevilla and Villarreal have been highly inconsistent in recent weeks, and it has opened the door for the likes of Celta de Vigo and Real Betis to make a challenge for the Europa League qualification places. It is quite remarkable that Real Betis were as low as 14th in the table after a 2-0 loss against Athletic Bilbao just before Christmas. Yet, a run of five wins in the last eight league matches has led to a remarkable rise in the table. Sergio Leon is inching closer towards double-digit goals, as he is on nine league goals for the campaign.

Real Betis Team News

Zouhair Feddal (Achilles tendon), Jordi Amat (groin), Antonio Sanabria (meniscus), and Andres Guardado (discomfort) are the players unavailable for manager Quique Setien.

Real Sociedad Preview

The defensive setbacks for Real Sociedad continue to affect the team, as they look unlikely to finish in the top half of the table given the form shown by the likes of Eibar and Girona. Just like with Real Betis, Real Sociedad have also struggled with defensive issues. The club has conceded more than two goals per game average in the last six matches. Even if the team has netted 14 goals during the same period, any team will struggle with such a poor defensive record. Willian Jose is the club’s top scorer with 11 league goals.

Real Sociedad Team News

Manager Eusebio will be without Xabi Prieto (groin), Willian Jose (foot), Carlos Martinez (shoulder), and Geronimo Rulli (thigh) due to injuries.
