Real Betis vs Celta Vigo
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 4 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin (Sevilla).
Betis have not been pulling up any trees in the last couple of weeks in La Liga. They lost three on the spin in Spanish top flight and will head into the game with Celta Vigo eager to bring such a dreadful streak to an end.
Quique Setien’s men did manage to grab results in other competitions as they saw off Milan 1-2 in Europa League and Racing Santander 0-1 in Copa del Rey in between mentioned defeats. Los Beticos generally improved their defensive displays compared to the last season, but the attacking line is yet to start producing to its full potential. This can especially be said for league matches as the team failed to find the net in last three Primera Divison matches against Atletico Madrid, Real Valladolid and Getafe. Will the last game of the day on Sunday against Celta Vigo change such record?
Real Betis vs Celta Vigo: Head-to-head
Celta only lead the head to head tie by two wins coming into their 39th meeting with Los Beticos.
Teams snatched a narrow home win apiece when they came across each other in the previous term of La Liga.
These two matches offered as many as eight goals in total (3-2 and 2-1).
Both sides scored in seven of last eight head to head affairs.
Real Betis vs Celta Vigo: Prediction
Iago Aspas finally produced a super strong performance last weekend when he inspired a demolishing 4-0 victory over Eibar with a hat-trick. The experienced Spaniard thus took his league tally to eight goals and will no doubts be the main threat to Betis’ goal on Sunday in the absence of Maxi Gomez who is likely to skip another match through injury.
However, knowing about Betis’ playing style in the most recent set of matches, we can expect a very tight affair with the draw as the most likable of three outcomes.
