Real Betis vs Eibar
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 22 December 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin (Sevilla).
Real Betis moved up to 5th in the Primera Division ladder after a streak of three straight wins in the competition. Can they maintain the splendid run of form on Saturday afternoon when Eibar come to visit Benito Villamarin in the last Matchday of the year?
Los Beticos managed a fantastic comeback to see off Espanyol away at RCDE Stadium last weekend. Giovani Lo Celso cancelled Sergio Garcia’s opener in the first half, while Christian Tello and Oscar Duarte (own goal) finished the job at the death of the game. Betis thus won five and drew one of last six matches across competitions, a thread which also saw them clinch the top spot in their respective Europa League group.
Real Betis vs Eibar: Head-to-head
- Teams have three wins apiece coming into their 9th head to head encounter.
- Betis won three of four home matches against the Gunsmiths.
- None of last three H2H affairs saw goals scored at both ends.
- The Gunsmiths scored on just one occasion in four visits to Benito Villamarin.
Real Betis vs Eibar: Prediction
Los Beticos should really have a nice chance to finish the year in style and keep their push for European positions next term here. They are about to take on the poor defensive line of Eibar’s which allowed seven goals in last three outings in all competitions.
The Gunsmiths took just two points from past three league ties. They also have a dreadful record on travels this season with one win, two draws and four losses in seven games. Furthermore, Mendillibar’s men notched no more than four goals in these seven games on the road this term.
Betis kept four consecutive clean sheets on the home patch coming into this one. We see them as clear favourites based on both form and head to head trend in games at Benito Villamarin.
