Villarreal vs Real Betis
Spain- La Liga
Date: Sunday, 25 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio de la Ceramica (Villarreal).
The hosts are winless in the last 5 matches and are on a 4 game drawing streak in all competitions. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of the last 7 matches across all venues.
Coach Javier Calleja’s team are 16th in the table with 2 wins and 5 defeats in their 12 matches. This team is in the shadow of their past. The attack is a wreck, with just 11 goals scored and the defense is much worse conceding two more than that.
From the last 5 home games, they have 1 win and defeat each. Under 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of the last 5 matches in front of the home crowd.
Victories are urgently needed for the “Yellow Submarine” to stay afloat and to stay in the top tier of Spanish football.
Betis are fresh from an away win against the mighty Barcelona. In a 7 goal thriller, the Big Greens emerged victorious 4-3. With that win, they are now undefeated in 4 straight matches in all competitions.
In the last 6 games overall, they have lost only once and have 3 wins as well. From 5 recent games on the road, they have 3 wins and 2 losses. Under 2.5 goals were scored in 8 of their league games this season.
With their recent form, they moved to the 12th spot in the table. Till now they have won 4 wins and defeats each. They too have conceded more (15) than they have scored (12).
A win is necessary for both the sides. With 3 points Betis can move up to the 7th spot with 18 points and for the home side, it is a battle to stay out of the relegation zone.
