Real Betis vs Sporting Gijon
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 22nd January 2017
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin, Sevilla.
Real Betis will be hoping to maintain the fine home form and claim three points in the clash with struggling Sporting Gijon on Sunday afternoon. The visitors are in a terrible run after losing the fifth consecutive match last weekend to Eibar at El Molinon. Abelardo has huge troubles with the defensive line which allowed way too many goals in the recent period. The situation is even worse away from home where Gijon lost eight and drawn only one out of nine matches since the start of the campaign.
Knowing that Real Betis have claimed four wins in last five games at Benito Villamarin, it’s not hard to conclude that the 4/6 odds offered by the bookies on home win in this match represent a huge value. Victor Sanchez’s men played a very solid game last weekend in spite of conceding an early goal against Atletico Madrid at Vicente Calderon. Ruben Castro found the net in each of the last three games Betis played at Benito Villamarin and he should be your number one option for anytime goal scorer pick at the odds of 1/1.

The head to head record also goes in Real Betis’ favour since Los Verdiblancos have won 13 out of 20 games with Gijon. However, Sporting managed to hold on to two consecutive draws in last two encounters with Betis, but we sincerely doubt that they will make it three in a row this Sunday considering their poor shape.
