Real Betis-Deportivo La Coruna Betting Preview: Back the hosts to net at least twice tonight

After four winners over the weekend our Spanish expert Phil Kitromilides believes an attacking Betis side will end Depor's recent revival by scoring over 1.5 goals
After a stunning run of four wins and a draw had moved them from bottom of the table to their dizzy heights of 16th, Deportivo find themselves back in the drop zone courtesy of a win for their eternal rivals Celta over the weekend.

That makes Monday's game at Betis all the more important for the Galicians and Coral price them at 3/1 (4.00) to claim their third away win of the season.

Betis, meanwhile, who were unlucky not to get anything out of their trip to the Bernabeu last weekend, are offered at 10/11 (1.91), which in theory looks a good price.

The side from Seville are an exciting and dynamic outfit with the forward trio of Ruben Castro, Dorlan Pabon and Joel Campbell a match for any defence in the division.

Depor for their part have conceded the second highest number of goals in La Liga, with their total of 64 goals belying their basic inability to keep clean sheets.

Experienced defender Carlos Marchena is missing for Depor, and one fears for them this evening at the Estadio Benito Villamarin.

Backing Betis to score two or more at 8/11 (1.73) looks a solid selection, with Pepe Mel's men scoring two or more in three of their last four home games. Furthermore, Depor have conceded two or more in five of their last six away fixtures.

For a value bet back Betis, who are unbeaten this year at home, to be ahead at both half time and full time at 2/1 (3.00).
