Real Betis-Elche Betting Preview: Back both teams to score in Seville

Phil Kitromilides believes that the respective form of these two teams means neither of them will keep a clean sheet on Sunday
These two sides went into the international break with extremely contrasting results, as Elche recorded back-to-back victories, and Betis capitulated woefully at Getafe for their fourth defeat of the season.

The Verdiblancos have been extremely inconsistent so far and bet365 offer them at 3/4 (1.75) to get back to winning ways when they host Elche on Sunday.

Elche, for their part, are seemingly finding their feet in the top division, and can be backed at 4/1 (5.00) to heap more misery on Betis.

The side from Seville have been infuriating at times this season, given their lack of consistency.

What they have been doing regularly, at least, is scoring, netting in six of their eight league matches.

Elche too having been scoring with increasing regularity, finding the back of the net in their last four matches. At the same time, neither team boasts the most solid defence, meaning that backing goals at both ends seems like a logical conclusion.

It is offered at 5/6 (1.83) and has regularly paid out in games featuring these two teams this season.

Indeed, between them Elche and Betis have played 16 league matches this season, with both teams to score proving the correct selection in 11 of those encounters.
