Betis host Getafe in an exciting La Liga fixture on Sunday afternoon at Estadio Benito Villamarin. The match has a massive importance for both top half sides. The visitors are enjoying one of the best top flight campaigns in their history. They sit sky-high 4th after 25 rounds being two points above Sevilla and Deportivo Alaves in fifth and sixth.
You can only imagine how motivated Getafe players are being currently on the position which leads to the Champions league football next season. Azulones were in good touch lately. They won two and drew one of past three league affairs scoring at least two goals in each of games in the process.
The head coach Jose Bordalas has a deadly attacking duo in the likes of Jaime Mata and Jorge Molina. They have an equal share of a 20-goal tally combined in this term of Primera Division.
Real Betis vs Getafe: Head-to-head
Betis can rely on the head to head tradition which reveals they only lost two of twelve home clashes with Azulones (5 wins, 5 draws and 2 defeats).
However, Getafe were more successful in the previous meeting between the two sides, beating Los Beticos 2-0 at Coliseum Alfonso Perez in late-October last year.
Just two of past six head to head games saw goals scored at both ends.
Real Betis vs Getafe: Prediction
Betis are also dreaming of the elite continental competition. They hold 7th position and could move lock on points with Getafe in fourth with a victory here in front of their fans. However, they will head into this as form underdogs after winning just one of last six games in all competitions.
Los Beticos paid the price of playing on three different fronts of late. Their players should feel fatigue here as well as such an important tie comes just three days after Thursday’s Copa del Rey semi-final against Valencia at Mestalla.
Betis usually lacked meticulousness at the back in recent weeks. They are up against a super dangerous attacking line-up led by Jaime Mata and Jorge Molina. We see a huge value in backing the Over 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 2.50. Braver tipsters can try with Getafe to net two or more goals at sky-high 3.75 odds.
