Villarreal vs Real Betis Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

Villarreal have made a horrendous start to the 2017-18 La Liga campaign, and the club suffered a 3-0 loss against Real Sociedad. All the goals by the home team came in the first half. Willian Jose, Xabi Prieto, and Juanmi took advantage of Villarreal’s weak defending to register a comfortable win. Real Betis secured the first win of the season by beating Celta de Vigo 2-1 at home. Even though the away team took the lead through Victor Camarasa’s own goal in the 10th minute, Sergio Leon provided the equaliser in the 31st minute. Zouhair Feddal came up with the winner in the 77th minute. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Villarreal have made a very poor start to the season and the club cannot wait to get back at the La Ceramica. However, the opening two matches have witnessed very poor performances from Villarreal. Real Betis performed well to get a first win of the season. Real Betis have a poor away record with only eight points collected from the away games since November 2016. Even then, I see value in backing a draw this game. Real Betis scored 19 goals in the 19 away games last season. Even though Villarreal are yet to score this season, a home match is a reason to expect the Yellow Submarines to score. I would back this game to produce less than 2.5 goals.

Draw – 13/5

Total goals under 2.5 – 4/5

Villarreal saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Villarreal Preview

The start of the season has been disappointing for Villarreal after having suffered back-to-back losses while failing to score in both games. Yet, the club will be feeling reasonably confident about ending this poor start as the team had a strong record at home last season. A return of 11 wins at home speaks volumes about the strength of the club at the La Ceramica. Yet, the away form was also quite decent last season with eight wins placing Villarreal as the fourth best in terms of away record last season. Fran Escriba will be looking to sort out the poor form quickly.

Villarreal Team News

Sergio Asenjo (cruciate ligament), Andres Fernandez (cruciate ligament), Adrian Marin (knee), Antonio Rukavina (thigh), Roberto Soriano (knee), and Daniele Bonera (muscle) certainly ruled out of the game, while Victor Ruiz Torres (thigh) and Mario Gaspar (hamstring) are rated as doubtful.

Real Betis Preview

The potential absence of Sergio Leon can be a huge blow for Real Betis, as he has been brought in as one of the key players in the summer. The former Osasuna forward scored his first goal for Real Betis against Celta de Vigo. Last season, Real Betis only managed four away wins, but were not able get too much in the way of draws either. Even though the club started with an away defeat, it was against Barcelona. The club has managed just two wins and two draws in the away games since November 2016.

Real Betis Team News

Joel Campbell (meniscus) and Junior Firpo (thigh) are ruled out of the match, while Sergio Leon (thigh) is doubtful for the game.
