Alaves vs Betis Prediction & Betting tips
We close the 28th round in La Liga the duel between Alaves and Real Betis in the Mendizorroza in Vitoria. Both teams are doing fine in the last few weeks and are therefore full of self-confidence to Monday night.
Alaves went down 2-1 last week in the Basque regional derby against Real Sociedad, but is still well above the relegation zone. Trainer Abelardo Fernandez is not worried, however: “Our form of the last few weeks is comparable to that of top clubs like FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. Still being able to breathe is only relieved when we are at forty points. ‘ That number of points is seen in Spain as the magical border on which you are definitively insured for life retention.
Alaves plays the same game both at home and at home, but the results in his own Mendizorroza are a lot better than those on foreign soil. El Glorioso managed to win no less than six times in her last seven home matches in La Liga and to play it right away and is in blood form for her own audience. Alaves is absolutely not a goal machine, but because the team in the back of her business is in order, it often has one or two goals to win the victory. It was no coincidence that four of the last six league matches in the home ended with only 1-0 win. On Monday-evening, club top scorer Munir El Haddadi (six goals) returns to base after a suspension, but his attacker John Guidetti is in doubt. The Swedish attacker, who once again scored in La Liga, seems to be winning the race against time.
Real Betis lost 2-0 at Valencia last week and fell behind in the battle for European football. The Andalusians are now four points behind in seventh place, a place that most likely entitles to a ticket for the Europa League. Trainer Quique Setien: ‘Some people claim that I have no desire to go into Europe, but that is absolute nonsense. However, I live from race to race, without worrying about the rankings. I would, however, like to emphasize that we have only two points left in this football year with only 11 more rounds than in the entire previous season. ‘
Real Betis has indeed taken big steps this season. The green whites are under Setien for groomed and offensive football and always try to overpower the opponent. That way of playing, however, also gave a lot of adversities, but since attracting former FC Barcelona-defender Marc Bartra and the tactical conversion to 5-3-2, the team seems more in balance. In addition, players like Junior Firpo, Loren Moron and Francis Guerrero recently broke through from their own youth training, with which they provided the greens with some extra guts. Outdoors in particular, Real Betis is doing fine with four wins in the last six clearings, although the visitors have to make it Monday night without club legend Joaquin Sanchez. Fortunately for Setien, the Mexican Andres Guardado is available again after an injury.
