Our man in Spain Phil Kitromilides thinks these two sides will serve up an entertaining encounter at the Benito VillamarinThere are one or two worrying signs for Real Betis who, after losing 2-1 at Athletic Bilbao on Thursday night, have just one win from their opening six matches.
While at times during the current campaign they have looked scintalling, at others they have lacked shape and discipline.
The one goal they have netted in their last three competitive fixtures campaign came utterly against the run of play in Bilbao, and, in truth, Betis should have lost that particular game by a greater margin.
Betway price a much-needed home win, therefore, at 27/20 (2.35), while an exciting and in-form Villarreal team at 39/20 (2.95).
Yet despite Betis' recent failure to net that does not mean they are a negative side. Nor does it mean that this will be a low-scoring encounter.
The Verdiblancos have scored in four of their six matches this season including putting three past Valencia is a brilliant first-half performance a couple of weeks back.
They are capabale of finding the back of the net and, given that they are playing one of the most naturally attacking sides in the league in Villarreal, over 2.5goals looks like a solid option.
It is offered at 19/20 (1.95) and with Villarreal in fine scoring form themselves netting in five of their six games so far, backing at least three goals at the Benito Villamarin is the best selection.
