Valladolid vs Real Betis Prediction: Copa del Rey Match on 05.01.2022
The round of 32 in the Copa del Rey is the main event in Spain over the coming week, and there looks set to be an interesting showdown between Real Valladolid and Real Betis. The hosts will come into the fixture as underdogs, but will be hoping to knock out their La Liga rivals.
Copa del Rey Preview
Valladolid will be looking for a huge result in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday evening, as they look for a win to get through to the next round of the competitions. They have been in excellent form over the past month or so, having won their last four games.
Included in that run of four victories was a success over Las Palmas in the second round of the Copa del Rey. Valladolid needed to come back from a goal down in that fixture, as they fell behind after 22 minutes. However, Anuar Mohamed Tuhami levelled the scores in first half injury time.
A red card for Las Palmas player Unai Veiga changed the course of the game, as Shon Weissman and Cristo Gonzalez scored the decisive goals in the ten minutes after Palmas were reduced to ten men.
Real Betis will need to overcome disappointing results from their last two in order to get the victory here. They have lost each of their previous two games in the league, and have conceded five goals in fixtures against Athletic Bilbao and Celta Vigo.
The last win that they picked up came in the last round of the Copa del Rey, as Betis saw off Talavera with a 4-2 victory. Borja Iglesias and Joaquin scored in regular time, before Betis won the match in extra time after goals from Diego Lainez and Sergio Canales.
Valladolid vs Real Betis Head to Head
The last meeting between the sides came in May 2021, as the sides played out a 1-1 draw. Betis won the previous match between the sides in that season 2-0. Meanwhile, the last win for Valladolid came in the form of a 2-0 home success in July 2020.
Valladolid vs Real Betis Prediction
A shock could be on the cards in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, as Valladolid have the form to suggest that they could get the result that they need to reach the next round. We would be willing to take a chance on the underdogs based on the form that we have seen in the past couple of weeks.
