Leganes vs Real Betis
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 19 May 2018
Kick-Off at 15:15 UK / 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Butarque, Leganes.
Real Betis will play Europa League football regardless of the outcome of Saturday’s clash with Leganes away at Estadio Municipal de Butarque. Quique Setiien’s side has had plenty of ups and downs throughout the campaign, but Los Beticos generally have reasons to be satisfied with the final standing given they’ll finish the season sixth, above their bitter rivals Sevilla in seventh.
Betis will have a nice chance to end the campaign on a high here given they are up against the struggling Leganes side on the final day. The Legionaries took only one point from last five league matches, a streak that caused the drop down to 17th place in the Primera Division ladder.
Asier Garitano’s men have already secured the survival in the elite long time ago and the negative thread will by no means affect their top flight matches next year.
Leganes vs Real Betis: Head-to-head
- Sides have three wins each ahead of their eighth head to head encounter.
- Both teams were much more successful in matches in front of the home crowd.
- Leganes won two and drew one of three meetings at Butarque.
- At least four goals were seen in three of last four H2H affairs.
- The Legionaries destroyed Betis 4-0 a year ago at Butarque.
Leganes vs Real Betis: Prediction
The hosts conceded three goals in each of last two defeats to the likes of Levante and Real Sociedad, revealing plenty of holes in the most recent set of fixtures. Real Betis were much tougher to break down in the last couple of months as they shipped just one goal during the streak of six wins and a draw before they conceded two goals in each of last two league games to Bilbao and Sevilla.
The visitors are no doubts heavy form favourites in spite of the fact they’ll come into this winless in two. Nonetheless, it’s hard to go with the clear away win knowing Betis have a poor record at Butarque (two losses and a draw), which is why we’ll rather take the somewhat safer option and back the visitors not to lose at 1.44. Braver punters can chase the draw at the 3.30 odds.
