Real Betis vs Real Valladolid
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 21 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin (Sevilla).
La Liga top 6 chasers Betis and Real Valladolid meet for their Matchday 9 clash at Estadio Benito Villamarin on Sunday evening, looking to challenge a spot early on with important points. Both have 12 points to their name and the clash could prove very important for their consistency after the International break.
Betis have seen their three-game winning streak ended with a narrow loss at Atletico Madrid beforehand, failing to build on the wins over Girona, Leganes, and F91 Dudelange beforehand. They have an important clash at Milan looming and success here will be crucial for Quique Setien and his men.
However, Real Valladolid will be no easy side to build confidence against, coming into the match on the back of a three-game winning streak. They’ve beaten Levante, Villarreal, and Huesca before the break and based such a success on tough defensive displays, which promises a solid challenge in Sevilla too as Pucela look to extend their four-game unbeaten streak on the road!
Real Betis vs Real Valladolid: Head-to-head
- Valladolid haven’t beaten Betis since 2012 and their Copa del Rey success (1-0) against the rivals.
- The sides have last met in Segunda back in 2014/15, where Betis earned four points in two clashes.
- Pucela have held the rivals to a 1-1 draw in a July 2017 friendly, despite Betis showing off as a better side.
Real Betis vs Real Valladolid: Prediction
We do believe Betis will now be able to turn this one their way and bounce back to the winning ways, as we go for a Home win at 1.70 – which feels like the best approach to the fixture seeing their great performances in front of the home crowd recently.
We don’t believe we’ll see many goals, though, and Valladolid should prove a hard nut to crack in an attempt to build on a fine streak of their own. This also has us going for Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.90, with such hopes we’re in for a deadlock difficult to break at Estadio Benito Villamarin.
