Real Betis vs Villarreal
Spanish La Liga
Date: 11 September 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin (Sevilla).

Real Betis and Villarreal will take on in the last game of Sunday’s La Liga schedule and also one of the most exciting games of the whole Matchday No 5 at Estadio Benito Villamarin.

Both outfits got off to great starts to the new season. Los Beticos only snapped their three-win streak last weekend, falling 2-1 away at Real Madrid.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men limited the defending champions to just four attempts on target eight days ago at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Betis are fourth in the league standings at the moment, sitting just behind the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Villarreal.

It will be very interesting to see if Pellegrini’s squad can bounce back from the defeat in Madrid and get a result at home here against El Submarino Amarillo.

The hosts’ offensive line will face a big challenge here since Villarreal are the only team in the league that are yet to concede this season.

Villarreal have ten out of possible twelve points from the four opening rounds. They slipped up only in the previous away fixture, failing to break the deadlock against the struggling Getafe side in a goalless stalemate at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.

El Submarino Amarillo did rebound, though, by netting four unanswered goals in the home fixture (on the neutral venue because their Estadio de la Ceramica is in the renovation process at the moment) with Elche.

Real Betis vs Villarreal Head-to-head

  • Villarreal lead the head to head tie by 3 wins in the last 26 head to head encounters with Los Beticos.
  • However, El Submarino Amarillo only managed to pick up 6 wins in the previous 18 visits to Estadio Benito Villamarin.
  • Just one of the last five head to head encounters between Real Betis and Villarreal provided three or more goals.

Real Betis vs Villarreal Prediction

Both Real Betis and Villarreal (in particular) are very tough to break down at the start of the season. They have conceded three goals combined (all Betis) in four opening games.

This is why we are going with the Under 2.5 goals FT bet in their head to head clash at the 1.90 odds. It is also worth noting that four of the last five H2H meetings between these two sides ended with fewer than three goals scored.

Real Betis vs Villarreal Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.90 (9/10)
  • Draw at the half time @ 2.20 (6/5) odd.
