Real Betis vs Sheffield United
Club Friendlies (Pre-season 2019/20)
Date: Friday, 12 July 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Algarve.
Sheffield United will be playing in the Premier League this season after they came in second behind Norwich in the Championship to earn themselves promotion after twelve long years. They were certainly impressive in the league last season and had an unbeaten run in their last eight games as well.
With their preseason friendlies underway this week, the squad will be hoping to kick start their campaign with nothing but a positive result.
Their opponents Real Betis finished tenth in their respective league and will be remembered for pulling off an impressive 2-0 win against titans Real Madrid in the final game of that season.
The squad, however, will be coming into their second pre-season friendly at the Estadio Algarve, on the back of a 5-2 win against DC United in the first. They broke the deadlock early on in that match and doubled their lead before heading for the break.
Although their opponents did equalize with two of their own, they succumbed to three more and finally handed the Spanish outfit the win at the last blast of the whistle.
We can certainly expect an exciting maiden clash between the two teams, with the game certain to produce more than two goals by the end of the ninety minutes.
Chris Wilder’s side have four more preseason friendlies to look forward to, while their foes have just one more before they begin their league campaign next month.

Real Betis vs Sheffield United Prediction
Betis are likely to come out on top when the two sides lock horns with each other on Friday.
The Spanish outfit have just three preseason friendlies in their schedule and have already picked up a win in the first one. The team certainly racked up the goals and had five different players from their side get their names on the scoresheet.
Sheffield are not a weak team by any means. The squad earned promotion by scoring seventy-eight goals to their name while conceding just forty-one, which was the least by any team in the league last season.
We can certainly expect both the teams to find the back of the net at least once in the ninety minutes, while the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Rubi’s men at the last blast of the whistle.
