Betis vs Levante Prediction & Betting tips
The “verdiblancos” start as favorites due to the collective and offensive potential they possess under the command of Quique Setién. For this reason and knowing that their performance increases when they act in the Benito Villamarín, we believe they have what it takes to win the game by one or two goals difference. Of course, the process of the match can be fought for the competitive style of his rival, which improved a lot in the final straight of the last Santander League. In the end, a local victory is expected by 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 after the referee whistle.
The “verdiblancos” made a great season in the last Santander League, showing it by placing in the sixth position of the general table (60 points product of 18 wins, 6 draws and 14 falls in total). Now the goal of those led by Quique Setién is to repeat that good performance and carry out a good campaign in the Spanish tournament and in the Europa League that is about to start (group stage). If reinforcements are involved, the leadership signed some players to repower the squad that remained (Bartra, Canales, Guardado and Joaquín). They arrived Pau Lopez, Joel Robles, Inui, Canales, Antonio Barragan and the Portuguese William Carvalho. Acting as a local in the last league recorded 10 wins, 4 equalities and 5 falls in the Benito Villamarín (35 goals for and 31 against, proving to be an intense set in attack and irregular in defense).
In matters of friendlies, Betis played several throughout the summer, achieving the following results: 1-0 win against Nottingham Forest, 1-1 draw with Braga, 2-0 victory over Huddersfield, 1-2 win against RW Essen, fall 2-3 against Borussia Monchengladbach, draw 0-0 with Wolves, win 2-3 against Marseille, draw 2-2 with Lille, win 0-2 against Bournemouth, win 1-2 against Cardiff, win 1-3 against Frosinone and a 4-0 victory against Las Palmas. For this presentation Quique Setién is expected to use the 3-4-1-2 system, which allows him to be dapper and vertical when attacking. Its objective is not to be badly stopped when defending, being ideal that the team performs well the transitions defense-attack and attack-defense.
After having achieved permanence in the final stretch of the last Spanish league, the goal of Levante is to improve their numbers and not complicate too much. For this season, coach Paco López will look to repeat what he did between March and May of this year, months in which his team played well and managed to stay in the first division (15th place with 46 units). The logic indicates that try to capture a balanced football in which the brand is imposed on good football. Do not rule out that your team is direct to attack, leaving aside the famous possession. It does not count on players to leave playing, but yes to fight the games and to win them by punctual plays. As a visitor in the last league, he recorded 4 wins, 7 draws and 8 falls, reaching 19 goals and conceding 30 on his fence.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Levante played some friendlies in the summer, achieving the following results in this preparation stage: 3-4 defeat with Bournemouth, 3-1 defeat against Zwolle, 2-1 defeat with Feyenoord, 2- draw 2 with Utrecht, victory 1-3 against Heerenveen, draw 2-2 against Albacete and equality 1-1 with Zaragoza. If we review these markers, we can conclude that the “blue” box has scored and yielded goals with relative ease, lacking equilibrium between lines. It is enough to know that in all its matches the bet was “both teams score” to corroborate this affirmation.
Both teams have met twice in recent years for the Santander League. Both games were won by Betis, ratifying the potential he has when he plays for Benito Villamarín. First he won 1-0 in April 2016 and then won 4-0 in September 2017.
