Real Betis vs Real Sociedad
Spain – Copa del Rey
Date: Tuesday, 26 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin (Sevilla).
Betis is on a five-game unbeaten streak in their schedule, with just one draw in it. The 2-2 draw on the road with Sociedad in the La Liga broke their winning streak in the campaign. However, reaching the quarter-finals of Copa del Rey after defeating Gijon with a 0-2 scoreline will hold hopes for the home team in the upcoming clash.
The 0-2 win on the road against the likes of Cordoba in the previous Copa del Rey fixture broke their three-game winless streak across all major competitions. Along with that, the away team had reached the quarter-finals with that victory. They will visit on the back of a 2-2 draw at home against the host in La Liga last time out in their schedule.

Real Betis vs Real Sociedad Prediction
The match is a tight encounter, especially when the teams met recently in the league games which ended in a draw. We can expect a similar result in the Copa del Rey in ninety minutes. There is a good chance that the game will take extra time to decide the winner of the fixture.
The host enjoys the ground advantage and their unbeaten streak in the schedule will back them well. It has to be noted that only one of their last five unbeaten clashes across all major contests have ended in a draw. It was in their visit to Sociedad in La Liga, and things may change in their favor at home.
Since it is a tight call expecting another 2-2- draw from the two teams, the tip for a high-scoring affair will probably come in handy for the punters. The tip for over 2.5 goals will do well, along with BTTS at 2.00 odds and 1.70 odds, respectively.
