These two sides played out an exciting clash in the first leg of this Copa del Rey semi-final three weeks ago and we think goals are likely once more

Real Betis travel to Valencia on Thursday evening with the scoreline currently 2-2 in their Copa del Rey semi-final.

The first leg in Seville three weeks ago saw Quique Setien's side take a two-goal lead, only to concede late on and give Los Che a healthy away goal advantage.

Valencia boast an excellent home record this term and are unbeaten in their last 13 matches in front of their own fans, so will certainly fancy themselves to reach the final.

Betis know they must score to progress but Valencia do have a strong scoring record at home, and while neither side have maybe been as prolific as we would have expected this term, there should be goals once more on Thursday evening.

Los Che have netted in 15 of their 20 home matches in all competitions this term while Betis have scored in nine of their last 12 competitive games on the road.

Tips and predictions

Both teams to score is offered at 4/5 (1.80) which looks like a price that should be generous enough to encourage plenty of interest. Over 2.5 goals also looks like a strong option at 17/20 (1.85)
