It has been a damaging run of form for Real Betis, as they have slipped out of the top five places in La Liga after winning just once in their previous five. However, they will be favoured to get back on track against Getafe this weekend, who have lost their last three league fixtures.
La Liga Preview
This looks to be an important fixture in La Liga for both Getafe and Real Betis, as both sides come into the match in poor form. The heightened pressure is likely to be on Betis, as they have dropped to sixth in the standings after winning just once in their last six matches. Despite that poor run of form, the Spanish side remains just three points outside of the Champions League spots, which means a challenge for a place in the top four remains a goal.
Betis were beaten for the second time in four matches in their previous fixture, with that also being their fifth defeat of the season. That loss was a shock defeat on the road against Espanyol, with the visitors netting the winner after 43 minutes. Betis looked more lively in the second half, but they could only register four shots on target from their 70% of the possession.
Getafe’s position in La Liga is slightly more on edge, as they sit 16th in the current standings. That leaves them just outside the relegation places courtesy of their superior goal difference. Over their previous five games, they have suffered four defeats, which includes losses in each of their last three.
However, they would have been pleased with their display in their previous game, as they were beaten 1-0 by Barcelona. Getafe looked to hit the league leaders on the counter attack, and few would have argued against them deserving a point based on their defensive solidity.
Getafe vs Real Betis Head to Head
Betis has gone three without defeat against Getafe, with both of their wins during that period being recorded at home. The most recent fixture between the sides in Getafe ended in a 0-0 draw. In fact, both teams have failed to score in a single meeting between these sides in each of the previous five meetings.
Getafe vs Real Betis Prediction
We expect this to be a nervy fixture between two sides that are struggling at present. However, Getafe’s defensive display last weekend was pleasing enough to suggest that they could earn a 1-0 win this weekend.
