Real Betis vs Las Palmas
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 19 April 2018
Kick-Off at 20:30 UK
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin (Sevilla)
Las Palmas travel to Sevilla for their Matchday 33 clash on Thursday amid a troubled spell of form, sitting ten points behind 17th placed Levante with five losses suffered in their last six outings. They’ve held Deportivo La Coruna to a 1-1 draw in the process but the point won at fellow struggling rivals will be no major boost to their survival battle, ahead of the tough away day at Real Betis.
Beticos, on the other hand, come into the match in a superior form and on the back of a five-game winning streak, looking to build on their top 5 spot. They’ve beaten Espanyol and Eibar in their last two outings in front of the home crowd with rock-solid performances across the pitch and Quique Setien must be happy with his outfit, as his men extend a gap to the seventh-placed Sevilla to five points.
They’ve been regularly scoring goals and their performances at the back will obviously be reassuring, coming into the match on the back of a 0-1 win at Girona on Friday. They’ve had more time to rest and we believe we’re in for another very confident performance on the day, as points against league strugglers come as a must at this point.

Real Betis vs Las Palmas: Prediction
We will back them to bag all three points once again and win to Nil at very good-looking 2.60.
With that in mind, we shouldn’t see many goals on the day and we’ll also back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 2.70, which does look value seeing the sides’ recent outings.
