Betis vs Villarreal Prediction & Betting tips
There will be a tense atmosphere in the Benito Villamarin on Sunday evening when Villarreal visits Real Betis. The home club has been disappointing for some time and can almost certainly write European football on its stomach. The visitors are just above the relegation zone and have to win to keep their chances of survival in their own hands.
Real Betis’ European aspirations are tied to a thread. After the 2-1 defeat of last Thursday’s visit to Real Sociedad, the Andalusians dropped to an anonymous tenth place and saw the gap at number six Sevilla rise to six points. “European football is becoming a difficult story,” said star player Sergio Canales. ‘We cannot, however, lower our shoulders. We must continue to believe in it, because you never know in football. ”
Nothing is impossible in football, but the confidence of Real Betis has almost reached its freezing point. Trainer Quique Setien has a very nice selection with plenty of individual qualities, but eleven good players do not automatically form a good team. Before the winter break, the green and white still did reasonably well, but in recent months it has not been very good what they put on the mat. The season ticket holders in their own Benito Villamarin are also having a hard time, because Real Betis has already won five official home games in a row. The last time the Andalusians stepped out of the field as winners in front of their own public was already over two months ago. Setien is under pressure, although he can reclaim some credit in the city derby against arch-rival Seville next week. Players like Joaquin and Giovani Lo Celso are on the cards in terms of yellow cards and will therefore probably be spared this weekend.
For Villarreal, the remaining eight rounds of La Liga are all about survival. The yellow shirts played a draw against FC Barcelona 4-4 last Tuesday evening, which means they are still one point above the relegation zone. With seven points from the last four rounds, El Submarino Amarillo has the right form just in time, although the team still feels the hot breath of Celta de Vigo in the neck. Points will also have to be taken when you visit Real Betis.
Just like the bookmakers, I think Villarreal will make it and that the team can be admired again next season at the highest level. Since the return of coach Javi Calleja there has clearly been an upward trend in the game of the yellow shirts, who actually deserved a win against FC Barcelona. The Nigerian attacker Samuel Chukwueze in particular played a strong game, but late goals by Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez plunged Ceramica into deep mourning. The rear-guard in particular, with seven goals in the last two games, remains a concern, although Calleja is still sticking to his system with three central defenders: ”
