Villarreal vs Real Betis
Spanish La Liga 2016/17
Date: Sunday, 6th November 2016,
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: El Madrigal, Villareal.
Villarreal suffered their first defeat of the season last weekend as Eibar let it late to strike twice to inflict a 2-1 defeat. The Yellow Submarines were on a 11-match unbeaten run in all competitions since then. And they were again defeated in the mid-week fixture, this time by the Turkish outfit Osmanlispor. They still hold an excellent home record in La Liga this season and are on a 4 match winning streak and scored 12 goals during the period.
Real Betis were beaten by Espanyol on a 1-0 margin at home in the last round fixture and registered their third loss in 4 league games. Inconsistency is the hallmark of this team and the early signs suggest that this could cost them dearly on the long run. They are currently 13th in the league table, only 2 points separate them from the danger zone. Betis have suffered some heavy thrashings this season; 6-1 by Real Madrid and 6-2 by Barcelona.
