Real Betis and Atletico Madrid face each other at the Estadio Benito Villamarin in a clash that promises a very few goals, at least according to the stats.
Five of the last seven H2H meetings between these two have produced under 1.5 goals, with just one ending with more than two goals.
Having secured only one victory in their last five La Liga fixtures (W1, D1, L3), the hosts are stuck in a crisis. Betis’ recent drop-off in form has seen them tumbling down to the eighth place, as they currently trail the Europa League promotion zone by two points. Los Verdiblancos’ indifferent home form (W5, D5, L3) can’t encourage Quique Setien, but the fact they’ve secured three wins in their last five LL home outings (W3, D1, L1) certainly can. The Andalusians have not been going after glory in their home victories, with each of their five home wins saw them beating their rivals with a narrow 1-goal margin. Three of Betis’ five home triumphs have ended with the identical 1-0 scoreline. Uninspiring performance in the final third has seen the Verderones scoring over 1.5 goals per match only four times in 11 LL home clashes.
It will be a daunting prospect for Betis to overcome their attacking difficulties, considering the best La Liga defense arrives at the Estadio Benito Villamarin. Atletico Madrid’s tally of 13 goals conceded after 21 LL fixtures is a comfortable league high, with Los Colchoneros keeping a clean sheet 11 times so far. What’s more, the visitors have allowed just one goal in their last five LL encounters while scoring eight in the process. Unbeaten in their last 19 races across all competitions (W11, D8), Los Rojiblancos stretched their LL winning run to three games with a 2-0 win over Getafe last weekend. However, Diego Simeone’s men hold the joint-high record of six draws in ten LL road meetings (W3, D6, L1), with five of their six road stalemates finished with the identical 1-1 scoreline.
