Betis vs Celta Vigo Prediction
If we exclude two recent victories in Copa Del Rey, form of Real Betis does look inconsistent. They have gathered seven points from the last five La Liga outings, losing to Granada and Levante (both on the road), while beating Cadiz and Huesca.
Squad definitely could improve in the pack as they already conceded 31 goals in 18 appearances. A big majority of those were on the road (20). Former Lyon striker Nabil Fekir is having a rough time this season, scoring only one goal.
Many thought that experience of head manager Manuel Pellegrini will change that, but French striker is still out of shape.
Sanabria on the other hand directly secured a lot of points lately for Betis. Celta Vigo won’t be able to count on one of their best players Iago Aspas who got injured, so we see decent value in backing hosts here. Goals definitely should be seen in Sevilla.
