Leganes vs Betis Prediction & Betting tips
The now traditional Sunday lunch in La Liga is this weekend for Leganes and Real Betis, who will compete against each other in the Butarque.
With a provisional thirteenth place and seven points from the last four rounds, Leganes is again on the road to life retention this season. The Madrilenians know what they can and especially do not and have this winter well strengthened with, among others, Mexican international Diego Reyes and the Danish striker Martin Braithwaite.
The game of Leganes is mainly based on a decent rearguard, because with only 27 opponents it has the least passed rearguard of the right-hand row. Los Pepineros likes to keep a lot of players behind the ball, something that Real Betis coach Quique Setien complained about in the first round. “We do not care about that,” says midfielder Gerard Gumbau. ‘We firmly believe in our conception of the game and are not going to change it.’ I also find it too easy to label the game of Leganes as anti-football. After years of few goals and bad attackers, Youssef En-Nesyri and the aforementioned Braithwaite are finally running an attractive strikers couple around the Butarque. Since the turn of the year the attack duo took care of the complete goal production of the people of Madrid.
Real Betis is hot. Last Thursday, the Andalusians pulverized their spectator record, because in the semifinals of the Copa del Rey against Valencia, 57,123 spectators were sitting on the stands in the Benito Villamarin. The old record stood at 55.588 spectators, in the city derby last season against arch rival Sevilla.
The many fans provided an old-fashioned witches’ cauldron and initially pushed the home team to great heights. Partly thanks to a world goal from club legend Joaquin, who curled a corner kick directly into the goal, Real Betis took a 2-0 lead, but in the last twenty minutes Valencia came alongside: 2-2. This midweek cup match has obviously taken a lot of effort, so the question is how fit the greenwigs will kick off at Butarque on Sunday afternoon. In addition, a difficult away match against French Rennes in the knockout phase of the Europa League awaits next Thursday. Chances are therefore that Setien will rotate a bit, although the reserves already showed very nice to play football last week. Last week, Real Betis managed to beat Atletico Madrid 1-0 with a mix of reserves and base players. However, the results outside of Benito Villamarin’s own last few weeks with only one victory in the last seven official defeats are a lot less.
