Betis – Espanyol : Preview & Prediction
Betis Seville need to collect a few more points, 7 or 8, to validate their retention in La Liga. The Andalusian club has a great opportunity to return to victory with the arrival of the red lantern, Espanyol Barcelona. The partners of Nabil Fékir (7 goals) have not won for 3 days, since the resumption of the season on June 11. The Sevillian team was held in check at home by Granada (2-2) and conceded 2 defeats in Seville (2-0) in the derby and then on the field of Athletic Bilbao (1-0) last Saturday. Winner of Real Madrid (2-1) at Benito Villamarin on March 8, Betis Seville has the potential and the assets to take on the scalp of the last in La Liga. The Catalan club is 5 lengths behind Eibar, the first non-relegated, and 8 days before the end of the season, it is starting to do a lot. This trip to Andalusia seems perilous for the training of Abelardo who remains on 2 poor performances at Getafe (0-0) and ahead of Levante (1-3) at RCDE Stadium on the last day. Unable to win away from home in its last 7 trips (2 draws and 5 losses), King’s Cup and La Liga included, Espanyol does not seem able to silence these statistics!
Betis Seville is 14th.
Espanyol Barcelona is the red lantern of the championship.
