Out-of-form Real Betis welcome an improving Espanyol side to the Estadio Benito Villamarín for La Liga mid-table clash.
The hosts go into this meeting off the back of three successive LL defeats in which they’ve scored three goals and conceded eight. Furthermore, Betis’ notable drop-off in form has seen them lose four of their previous five competitive home outings (W1, L4) with all five of those games producing 2.5 goals and seeing both teams score. Los Verdiblancos’ struggling in the final third has seen them score precisely one match goal in five of their last six LL home fixtures. Still, Quique Setién’s main worry ahead of this encounter is that fact Los Verderones have failed to preserve a clean slate in seven consecutive home games across all competitions.
Meanwhile, the visitors are unbeaten in their last five LL clashes (W2, D3) with all five of those matches featuring goals on both ends. However, Periquitos have been suffering away from home in 2019, pulling off just one triumph on eight LL road trips since the turn of the year (W1, D4, L3). Importantly, Rubi’s players have conceded over 1.5 match goals five times across those games, keeping just one clean sheet in the process. Also, both of Espanyol’s LL away wins this campaign (W2, D7, L8) have come against the bottom four teams, and both have seen them score precisely two goals.
