Real Betis and Valencia will face-off at the Estadio Benito Villamarín in sharply contrasting circumstances.
The hosts enter this round frantically looking over their shoulders, as they sit just four points above the relegation territory. A poor run of form has seen Betis pick up only one triumph in their last seven La Liga (LL) outings (W1, D2, L4). Interestingly, four of their five results (win/loss) in that sequence have seen the winners on the day concede precisely one goal and score at least once in both halves. All seven of Betis’ LL home matches have witnessed both teams hit the net, with four of those games ending with the identical 2-1 scoreline (W2, L2). Los Verdiblancos now face a daunting prospect of snapping their two-game winless LL streak (D1, L1), given that they’ve lost two of their previous three league H2Hs with Valencia here (D1, L2).
On the other hand, the visitors have won both of their last LL games, scoring two goals apiece while conceding one in total. Although hovering in mid-table, the Oranges could break into top-six if they can stretch their unbeaten LL run against Betis to five games (W3, D1). However, they have endured mixed fortunes in their last five league road trips (W2, D1, L2), with both of their wins in that period coming via a single-goal margin. Los Ches have been struggling in the final third when away from home this term, as just seven of their total 19 LL goals scored so far arrived on the road (36%). Another potential worry for the traveling side is that they’ve kept a clean sheet only once in six LL away games, conceding over 1.5 match goals twice.
