Real Betis vs Deportivo Alaves
Spain – La Liga
Date: Thursday, 16 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin (Sevilla).
Real Betis is not at their best form in the league right now, but the dip in form of Deportivo Alaves in the campaign will aid them in closing in on the three points from the clash. The host is not prone to relegation this season in the table and hence will pay for nothing.
Alaves need the three points to stay at the top tier next season. They are surfacing on the edge of the red zone in the league table with just a four-point cushion. Even a draw will satisfy the visitor, but they will have a tough time finding the points.
Betis has only one win in their last five matches and is unbeaten in two of the recent three fixtures with a draw in it.
Their previous encounter was on the road and they lost to Atletico Madrid with a 1-0 scoreline.
The Beticos has lost only one of their recent six attempts as the host. They might not fancy ground advantage in the game, but playing at home is their strongest suit in the league.
Alaves has only one win in their last ten fixtures and is winless for the past seven clashes in the league schedule with a draw at the end.
Their six-game losing streak ended with a goalless draw at home against Getafe in the last match.
El Glorioso has lost their last five fixtures on the road straight, having scored only one goal in the same period while conceding 13 goals.
The visitor has won no game on the road for the past eight attempts. So, the chances of Juan Muniz and his men to trouble the home team is not likely to happen.

Real Betis vs Deportivo Alaves Prediction
Real Betis cannot argue for a home ground advantage in the match as their form does not support that, but their recent results suggest a better performance against a relegation prone side. With just 5 losses in their 18 home matches so far in the league, Betis has a slight edge in the match.
In the meantime, Alaves has only 2 wins in their 18 away fixtures until now. Besides, they are on a five-game losing streak in the campaign tours. Having scored only one goal in their last five trips on the road, the odds are against the traveling side.
The safest bet for the punters in the clash will be a draw no bet over Real Betis with 1.57 odds. The tip for over 1.5 goals with 1.40 odds will be a suitable option for the ninety minutes.
