Villarreal vs Real Betis
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Friday, 27 September 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villareal).
Things have finally started to look up for Villarreal who have gone from being winless in their opening two games to recording back to back wins in their most recent matchups.
The hosts took down Valladolid with a 2-0 scoreline in their last home clash, prior to which they thrashed Leganes with three unanswered goals to their name.
Real Betis have tasted success not more than once in their previous five games in the La Liga. The visitors have salvaged just two points from a maximum six in their last two clashes and have been far from convincing in pulling off a win.
Furthermore, the away side are yet to pick up a win on the road. With home advantage out of the equation this week, a third defeat is certainly looming large for Betis.

- Both teams have got their names on the scoresheet together in their last four clashes.
Villarreal vs Real Betis Prediction
Javier Calleja’s men are unbeaten on home soil and have been showing real promise in front of their home fans. It is also worth mentioning that more than half of the twelve goals that the squad have scored so far have come from their matchups at home, netting at least two goals or more in each of their last three here.
On the other hand, their counterparts failed to find the back of the net in their previous outing, while their only other trip on the road was a 5-2 drubbing at the hands of Barcelona.
Taking into account that their last three visits to this venue have also seen them admit defeat, Villarreal will be fancying all three points for the taking on Friday.
Additionally, the hosts have opened the scoring in each of their past three home games. Considering that their last head to head clash here also saw Real Betis concede first, by all means, count on Villarreal to be the ones to break the deadlock in this one.
