Valencia vs Real Betis Match Preview
Valencia made a swift return to losing ways last week on the road after Real Sociedad took them down with a thumping 3-0 scorecard. The hosts hardly made an impact in that latter clash, to be frank, and disappointingly finished the ninety minutes with just one measly shot on target.
It is also worth mentioning that the home team are on a winless run that has now stretched to five games on the trot. That too, across all competitions. At the moment, Valencia have slumped down the ladder and are eighth with thirty-eight points to their name.
On the other hand, Real Betis salvaged a point against Mallorca in a fiercely fought six-goal thriller at home. Be that as it may, the visitors are also without a win in their past five LaLiga fixtures, and have garnered just three points from a possible fifteen.
Miserably, the guests are now just six points away from falling into the relegation zone.
Valencia vs Real Betis Prediction
Valencia have been a confident bunch on home soil. Impressively, the hosts are one among the only three sides in the top flight that are yet to admit defeat at home.
In sharp contrast, Real Betis have been struggling to get things going on the road. They have just one win to boast of from their outings so far and have been at the losing end five times already.
Piling on even more misery, the guest have come out on top just once in their previous nineteen trips to this stadium. With home advantage out of the equation for them this week, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Valencia.
However, it needs saying that the visitors have shared the spoils six times away from home so far. Given that the hosts have also been held to a draw on six occasions here, it will be safer to back a draw no bet in this one.
Furthermore, Valencia have been scoring goals at will in their clashes here. Impressively, they have racked up twenty-one goals to their tally at home.
Meanwhile, Real Betis have conceded fifteen goals from their past ten outings alone. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this clash was also a high scoring affair, expect over 2.5 goals on the scorecards, by all means, this Saturday.
