Real Betis will be looking to record a second straight win in the league this weekend. However, Real Valladolid should come into this fixture in good confidence after going three without defeat in the Spanish top-flight.
La Liga Preview
Real Betis can still make a charge for a place in the Champions League spots this term, as they remain fifth in the overall standings. They have picked up two wins from their previous four matches, and that sees them sit four points behind Atletico Madrid in the table. But, a run of victories will certainly put pressure on the sides above, and that is the very least that they can do to improve their chances of a top four finish.
Betis ended a two-game losing streak in their most recent fixture, as they landed a victory against Almeria. It was an entertaining game between two sides that were always looking to play on the front-foot, but Betis likely did just about enough to edge the match. The winning goal was scored with 20 minutes remaining by Andres Guardado.
Valladolid won’t be overwhelmed by this fixture on Saturday, as they come into the match in solid form. However, they remain just four points above the drop zone at present, meaning that they will need to continue their impressive run of results to ensure their safety in the Spanish top-flight.
Valladolid wasn’t able to record a third straight win in their most recent fixture, as they could only play out a draw against Osasuna. On that occasion, Valladolid were slightly disappointing, as they didn’t do enough in the game to make a breakthrough. They managed just five shots on target, despite dominating the possession.
Real Betis vs Real Valladolid Head to Head
Each of the previous two meetings between these sides in La Liga have ended in draws. The most recent of those was a 1-1 tie earlier this season. However, Betis won this exact fixture in the previous campaign that the sides were in the top flight, as they claimed a comfortable 2-0 home win against Valladolid in September 2020.
Real Betis vs Real Valladolid Prediction
Valladolid have been impressively defensively in recent weeks, but that strong backbone will be put to the test this weekend against an impressive Betis side. That being said, we still expect the hosts to have enough quality to claim the maximum points.
