Real Betis vs Alaves
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 17 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarín (Sevilla).
Deportivo Alaves managed to end a three-loss streak on Monday when they saw off Levante 2-0 in front of the home fans.
They will thus come into late game of Sunday’s La Liga schedule high on confidence aiming to build on the mentioned victory and stay unbeaten against top-half rivals Real Betis away at Estadio Benito Villamarin.
The visitors are just two points shy of Sevilla in fourth place and they could even join the battle for the Champions League football with a fine streak of results in weeks to come.
Betis are three points behind them in seventh place meaning we are looking at a potential six-pointer in the battle for European spots at the end of the season.
Real Betis vs Alaves: Head-to-head

Los Beticos won two and drew one of past three encounters with Alaves.
Both teams scored on just two occasions in last five H2H affairs.
Real Betis vs Alaves: Prediction
The visitors will look for their chances in Betis’ fatigue. Quique Setien’s men are in the midst of a well congested schedule which saw them play in the Saturday-Wednesday rhythm on a regular basis.
They drew 2-2 to Valencia in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final. They then showed one of the weakest performances of the entire season in a demolishing 3-‘0 defeat to Leganes last weekend away at Butarque.
Los Beticos revealed defensive vulnerability once again on Thursday when they drew 3-3 to French Ligue 1 outfit Rennes in the first leg of the last 32 Europa League round tie.
This is why we recognize the value in backing Alaves not to lose at 2.15 odds, even though Los Beticos generally have a fine home record of 6 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats in 12 league matches at Benito Villamarin.
