Real Betis are further down the league table in 12th. They appear destined for a mid-table finish as they are safe from relegation but also too far away from challenging for a European spot.

They won just once in the previous six, while they have also lost twice in that run of form. They did have a victory in their last La Liga fixture as they beat Real Madrid. Sidnei and Cristian Tello scored the goals on that occasion for Betis.
