Real Betis vs Villarreal Prediction & Match Preview

Real Betis vs Villarreal
Spain – Primera Division
Date: Sunday, 7th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarín (Sevilla).

Villarreal gave the performance of a lifetime last week against Barcelona. The highly entertaining game saw a total of eight goals, at the end of which either squad left the field with a point apiece. The scoreline was obviously 4-4. The team is just above the relegation zone, as of now, and realization has kicked in that in order to secure their future in the league, good performances need to be put in the remaining games.

Betis has lost some touch as far as results are concerned. They consistently perform in front of the goal but fail to close down their defense. As a result, the team which once looked set to finish in the top-six is now in mid-table. But still, nothing is over yet. They are just six points away from entry into Europe.

Real Betis vs Villarreal Prediction

Villarreal needs to treat the rest of their schedule as finals or risk getting a boot to the Segunda division. As of now, they have been doing justice to their objective. But the risk is not averted yet. They need to keep going with this intensity.

The team also scored a total of 16 goals from their last six games and had recorded two or more in four of their last five h2h matches. On the road, Villarreal managed two or more in the last three ties.

Betis, meanwhile, saw seven of their last ten fixtures, and eight of the last nine at home, with goal contribution from both teams. They also found the back of the net in 18 of their last 20 home games.

Furthermore, 11 of the last 14 h2h encounters at this venue had the BTTS option checked, and the last three overall games had three or more goals. In addition, Betis plays a free-flowing style of football that gives ample importance to the offense, while sacrificing a little integrity at the back. This naturally leads to a lot of goals, and from both sides.

Considering Betis needs to overcome a six-point deficit to put themselves into the European mix, expect them to arrive with intent as well. A furious, competitive period of ninety minutes is in order, which will present a lot of goals to cheer for.
