Betis vs Malaga Prediction & Betting tips
The “green and white” box starts as a favorite due to the collective potential it possesses and above all because it has a vertical play philosophy when it acts in the Benito Villamarín. For this reason and knowing that the Andalusians are already in the second division, we believe that the boys of Quique Setien can add another valuable triumph in their struggle to qualify for the Europa League. Remember that the visit does not defend well, costing them a lot to do away from the Rose Garden.
The “verdiblancos” equaled 0-0 against Atlético de Madrid as visitors in the Metropolitan Wanda, extending their positive streak of games without losing. These days, it has 56 units in total, standing out for making a great campaign in general lines. It is 10 of the Champions, but close to qualify for the next Europa League. Its main characteristic is to be an eleventh person thanks to the work of Quique Setién.
As a local, Betis has added more than positive results, except the odd setback at the start of the season (9 wins, 3 draws and 5 falls, scoring 31 goals and conceding 28 in his goal). His last games at Benito Villamarín were as follows: Triumph 3-0 against Espanyol, victory 2-0 against Eibar and win 1-0 against Las Palmas.
The Andalusians won 2-0 against Real Sociedad when they were already down, reaching a total of 20 units. They cut a streak of 3 consecutive defeats, facing this part of the championship for a matter of dignity. The team will surely continue playing more loose, as the pressure for the low is over. Maybe they will attack more, but most likely they will still have complications when dialing.
As a visitor, Malaga has registered very bad markers, costing him to be balanced between lines and solid in defensive matters (1 win, 2 parities and 14 falls, scoring 8 goals and conceding 28 in his goal). It comes from falling 2-1 with Athletic Bilbao, losing 2-0 with Leganés, to equal 0-0 with Celta, to trip 3-2 with Deportivo and to fall 1-0 against Levante on the hour.
The last duel held by both teams was last December and the score was favorable for Betis as a visitor (0-2). In the Benito Villamarín, he defeated Malaga 1-0 in September 2016.
