Alaves vs Real Betis Prediction

Alaves had taken on defending champions and current toppers Barcelona the last match-day, and that too at the Nou Camp. Expectedly, the team lost 4-1. In the meantime, Betis had played hosts to Atletico Madrid, and against the top-tier squad, Betis had to succumb to a 1-2 loss.

In regards to the result this Sunday, consider the current form of both teams at first. Alaves are on a five-match winless run at the moment, and had lost four of these fixtures. Also, in their last 21 match-days, Alaves were able to secure a total of just four victories, and this season as a whole, they were able to deliver just five wins.

At home, since February, Alaves have managed a total of just five wins, and in their latest appearance at this stadium, they were held to a 1-1 draw by the 19th placed Leganes.

On the other hand, Betis were on a five-match unbeaten run in overall games before their loss against Atleti the last match-day. They had also won four of these five fixtures. In addition, they were unbeaten in seven of their last nine match-ups, and had scored two or more goals in five of their last six games.

On the road, they are on a streak of four unbeaten matches, and this run had begun with holding Real Madrid to a draw at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Moreover, Betis have been unbeaten against this opponent in the past three years, and at this venue, Real have lost just twice in the previous twenty years.

Considering these above-mentioned pointers, it’s expected that Real Betis should put forth a commendable performance, and backing them should bring good returns.
