Villarreal vs Real Betis Prediction: La Liga Match on 03.10.2021
Villarreal have been the draw masters in La Liga this season, but they will need to start winning games if they are to lay down a challenge for the European spots. They face a Real Betis side this weekend that will be looking to stretch their unbeaten run to five games.
La Liga Preview
Villarreal will be aiming to finish in the European places this season, but they will need to start winning games in La Liga to achieve that feat. The Spanish giants have been held to five draws in the six games that they have played so far this season, and have won on just one occasion. That start to the season sees them sit down in eleventh in the current standings, but they are yet to lose a game in the Spanish top-flight. They were held to a draw once again in their last fixture, as they played out a 0-0 draw against Real Madrid. However, that would have been seen as a good point on the road. Villarreal were beaten for the first time in all competitions in midweek, as they went down to Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The Real Betis camp will be a confident one coming into this fixture in La Liga on Sunday, as they have won three and drawn three in their opening six games. That record sees them sit seventh in the La Liga standings, and they could move into the top four with a win this weekend. Betis have won three of their previous four games, and all three of their last fixtures in all competitions. Their last victory came in the Europa League, as they beat Ferencvaros on Thursday night. Nabil Fekir and Cristian Tello scored in the commanding win on the road.
Villarreal vs Real Betis Head to Head
Villarreal have a good record against Betis, as they have only been beaten on three occasions in the last 13 meetings in the league. However, they did lose the last fixture between the sides 2-1 in February. Betis though will be looking to win back-to-back away league games against Villarreal on Sunday for the first time in La Liga history.
Villarreal vs Real Betis Prediction
Away wins in this fixture for Betis are very rare, such is the historic feat that they are going for this weekend. However, their form is extremely strong, and we could see them make that history this weekend.
