Real Betis vs Cadiz
Spain – La Liga
Date: Wednesday, 23 December 2020
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarín.
Alvaro Cervera’s men are a recently promoted team, and they certainly lack the experience their counterparts have in the top flight. Moreover, the Heliopolitans are desperate for points, and have a great h2h record against this opponent as well.
Likely, it’s expected that Real Betis will have the edge at their home this Wednesday.
However, it needs to be noted that El Submarino Amarillo are one of those rare teams to pull off the double of scoring wins over both Barcelona and Real Madrid in a single league season, and note that the campaign has not even touched its halfway point.
As a cherry on top, they had also registered a win against the competitive Athletic Bilbao.
On top of that, also note that Manuel Pellegrini’s men have the worst defense in the whole of Spanish top flight.
As such, it’s inferred that Cadiz will find the back of the net at least once this Wednesday.
Real Betis vs Cadiz: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Five of the former six encounters had goals from both teams.
- The past four straight clashes had three or more goals. In fact, these four fixtures had 19 goals in total between them.
- The Heliopolitans have a 100% unbeaten record in league match-ups in the past three decades. To put it another way – the only loss they had experienced in the last thirty years had come in a Copa del Rey game.
- Not once have the hosts failed to score at this venue, while the visitors scored five goals in the latest encounter here.
Real Betis vs Cadiz: Prediction
Pellegrini’s men lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Granada. In the meantime, Cervera’s men lost 0-2 at home against Getafe.
Going on, the Heliopolitans have a perfect unbeaten record in league meetings against this opponent, and they also have not once failed to find the back of the net at home in any h2h clash at this stadium since 1990.
Meanwhile, El Submarino Amarillo are a recently promoted club as well, and understandably they are finding it hard to adjust to their new surroundings.
Expectedly, Betis are the favorites to post the three points this Wednesday.
However, with the worst defense in the competition, Pellegrini’s men will certainly find it tough to keep a clean sheet against a team that had defeated both Barca and Real Madrid.
Moreover, Cervera’s men had scored five goals in the latest face-to-face meeting at this ground as well.
For the reasons, BTTS seem to be a promising option this match-day.
