Real Betis vs Valencia
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 21 April 2019
Kick-Off 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin (Sevilla).
Real Betis host Valencia in one of the most exciting games of the Matchday in Spanish Primera Division on Sunday evening at Estadio Benito Villamarin. Teams will enter the affair in opposite moods. Hosts fell 3-2 to fierce enemies Sevilla in the city derby at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, while Valencia came on top against city rivals of their own, beating Levante 3-1 at Mestalla.
The victory over the Frogs helped the Bats bounce back from a surprising defeat to Rayo Vallecano. They now won three of last four league affairs and are still in the battle for the top-four finish. Marcelino’s men are just three points shy of 4th-placed Sevilla who have a tough away fixture against 5th-placed Getafe on the same day.

The Bats advanced to the final 3-2 on aggregate thanks to a narrow 1-0 victory at Estadio de Mestalla.
Valencia are undefeated in past six meetings with Los Beticos.
Last two H2H ties between these two likes at Estadio Benito Villamarin produced the total of 13 goals (3-6 and 2-2).
Real Betis vs Valencia: Prediction
Betis were genuine challengers for positions which lead to European competitions next season just a month ago, but a poor spell of form caused the drop to 9th place in the league ladder. Quique Setien’s men clearly lack consistency for bigger achievements. They won just one, drew one and lost three of past five league outings.
Valencia are thus big form favourites with four wins in last five ties in all competitions. The Bats also dominated latest head to head clashes against Los Beticos. However, this will by no means be a one-way street for them given Setien’s troops are capable of beating anyone on their day.
Backing goals at both ends looks to be a decent call at 1.66 odds.
