Betis vs Villarreal Prediction & Betting tips
Villarreal found the three-month break in the season very convenient. The yellow submarine suffered three defeats in a row before the forced break and thus severe setbacks in the race for international starting places. With 13 points from the last five competitive matches, not only was there a starting position for the Europa League, but the gap to a CL starting position was also reduced.
If Villarreal’s strong form continues, placing in the top four teams in the La Liga is by no means out of the question. In the English week, the yellow submarine meets Betis Sevilla. The green and whites bob around in the no man’s land of the table and have neither EL ambitions nor fear of relegation.
The best bookmakers see no clear favorites at Betis Sevilla against Villarreal according to odds. According to the current form of the two clubs, there is no doubt that the yellow submarine is ahead. Most recently there was a derby victory for Villarreal over Valencia (2-0). The team of head coach Javier Calleja dominated at will and convinced especially on the defensive.
Not a single enemy shot went to Villarreal’s goal. If one also considers how effectively the offensive has played in the competitive games since the re-start, it would be surprising if Villarreal gave points to the away game in Seville.
Six matchdays before the end of the season, the green and whites from Seville are not afraid of relegation and there are no hopes of a possible start right for the international competition. To break the 40-point mark for relegation, Betis Sevilla only needs to get three points in the remaining six games.
Since the Spanish La Liga started again, Betis Sevilla have won only one in five competitive matches. At the Estadio Benito Villamarín at home, the green-whites want to overcome the form crisis. Betis Sevilla have been unbeaten in their last four home games. Most recently there was a home win over the bottom of the table Espanyol Barcelona.
For Alexis Trujillo, it was the first victory as a Betis coach. The 54-year-old took over the table 13 after the ongoing form crisis. and acts as an interim solution until the end of the season. As the match last weekend shows, a trend reversal does not seem to be in sight even under the new trainer.
Betis Sevilla suffered a 2: 4 away defeat at table neighbor Levante. Although the offensive of the green-whites showed an effort, the performance of the attack department was overshadowed by the catastrophic defensive work. With 52 goals conceded Betis Sevilla is the second worst defense in the league. Only Mallorca (55) conceded more goals than Betis this season.
If the defensive remains as fragile as before, a home debacle against Villarreal can hardly be avoided. The guests arrive in excellent shape. Trujillo will have to do without Carvalho (suspended) and Joaquin (injured) on Wednesday evening. There are no further losses with the green-whites.
Villarreal is in the final sprint with a strong form. The yellow submarine has scored 13 points in the five games since La Liga restarted, reducing the gap to a starting position for the premier class. Villarreal are currently only three points apart from fourth in the table from Seville.
The attack department of the yellow submarine remains the flagship of the team. With 51 goals, Villarreal is the third strongest offensive in the La Liga. Only Real Madrid (60) and Barcelona (72) scored more goals this season than Javier Calleja’s team. Since the restart, the defensive has also been more stable than before.
In the last five competitive games, there have been only two goals conceded for the yellow submarine – both in the home game against Sevilla. In four of the last five games, the clean slate has been preserved. So also in the derby against Valencia, when Villareal celebrated a safe 2-0 home win. Top scorer Gerard Moreno screwed his account to 13 goals with his interim goal to 1-0.
Javier Calleja will have no major losses in Seville. Only long-term injured Ramiro Funes Mori will miss the away game on Wednesday evening. Most recently, the yellow submarine took two away wins in a row. With the third away win in a row, the pursuit of a CL starting position is to be continued.
If the Calleja team builds on the derby performance against Valencia, a bet on the guests is conceivable at Betis Sevilla against Villarreal.
