Key Highlights

Atletico Madrid’s Unbeaten Run

Diego Simeone and his charges are on a 10-match unbeaten run in La Liga. This run of form has seen Atletico move into third on the table, just five points behind second-placed Real Madrid. Simeone’s men have won four times in their last five matches and drawn once. They have collected 13 points out of the available 15. They will be looking to maintain this good run of form when they host another in-form side, Real Betis, at the Metropolitano on Sunday. 

Real Betis’ Top Four Hopes

Real Betis, fifth on the La Liga table, will be looking to push for a position in the top four in the run-in. Manuel Pellegrini’s men have 45 points, meaning they are three points behind third-placed Real Sociedad and a further eight points behind third-placed, and their next opponent in La Liga, Atletico Madrid. Betis will look to win the clash with Atletico on Sunday and bolster their top-four prospects, especially with the run-in starting in earnest.

Injury Report

Atletico Madrid

Diego Simeone has only one injury to worry about ahead of welcoming Real Betis to the Metropolitano, that of left back Reinioldo Mandava. The 29-year-old left-back is nursing a cruciate ligament rupture and has been sidelined with the injury since February 25, 2023. The fullback has missed sixteen matches for Atletico. The club have not set a date for his return to fitness, which means that he is unlikely to make his comeback against Betis on Sunday.

Real Betis

Manuel Pellegrini will be without three players for the trip to the capital to face Atletico; two to injury and one to suspension. Attacking midfielder Nabil Fekir is out of action with a cruciate ligament rupture. The 29-year-old has been out of the matchday squad since February 27, 2023.  Fekir has already missed 17 matches for Betis this season, and he will not be available until September 17, 2023. Right winger Juan Cruz is also out of selection with a muscle injury. The 22-year-old is expected back by April 2nd, 2023; this match will come too soon for the forward. Due to suspension, Pellegrini will not consider right-back Martin Montoya for selection for the clash with Atletico. [banner][/banner]

Prediction

Unbeaten in their last 10 league games, Atletico will be looking to extend their good run of form when they host Real Betis, who are unbeaten in six La Liga matches, at the Metropolitano. Atletico will look to maintain their identity approaches comprising a balance between a compact defensive unit and a tactically fluid approach in attack. Playing at home, they will look to take the initiative, dominate possession, and have territorial advantage. This will allow them to penetrate Betis and create chances. Real Betis will look to play on the front foot. They will seek to keep the ball, press Atletico out of possession, and push the home side back. This will allow them to enjoy the territorial advantage and create better quality chances. However, this will also leave them open to Atletico counterattacks. Atletico will win this match, extend their good run of form, and solidify their hold on third spot on the La Liga table. Make sure to be on Atletico Madrid vs Real Betis with 22Bet!"

La Liga action resumes after the international break this weekend, with the first match in Spain taking place on Friday evening. Mallorca will be looking to end a four-game winless run when they host Osasuna, who could move up to seventh with a win.

       

La Liga Preview

Two sides that would feel that the international break came at the right moment in the context of their season will lock horns on Friday evening. Mallorca will have the home advantage this weekend, as they bid to end a four-game winless run. Over that period, they have suffered three defeats, which has seen them drop to eleventh in the standings. However, they could move back up to ninth this weekend if they are able to claim maximum points.

The Spanish side suffered a 12th defeat of the season in their most recent fixture in the league. No side in the top half has suffered more defeats this term, which shows that they are looking to alter their fortunes to achieve that finish this season. However, defeat this weekend could enable the sides below them to suck them back into the relegation scrap. 

Osasuna could yet enjoy an excellent second half to the season, as they are currently ninth in the standings. At present, they sit six points off the European spots, and could close the gap to three points on Friday before their rivals get the opportunity to respond. However, they come into this match after winning just once in their previous five. 

Osasuna has also lost each of their previous two matches in the league, and have gone three without victory. Furthermore, they haven’t scored in each of their last three league matches, with the most recent of those coming in the form of a 3-0 loss at home against Villarreal.

Mallorca vs Osasuna Head to Head 

Draws have plagued this fixture in recent years, with seven of the last ten La Liga clashes between Mallorca and Osasuna ending in ties. However, the visitors this weekend have won two of the previous three, including a 3-2 victory in this exact fixture last season. 

Mallorca vs Osasuna Prediction

Osasuna will already have one eye on their upcoming Copa del Rey second leg next week, which means that we could see the hosts ending their winless run in the league this weekend. However, we expect a low scoring match, with under 2.5 goals being scored.
