Celta Vigo is hosting Real Betis at Municipal de Balaidos in round 34 in Spanish LaLiga.
Celta was playing well since the restart and they had 2 wins, 2 draws, and 1 loss, until their most recent game when Celta got demolished by Mallorca on the road. Celta was better in every aspect of the game, except defense. Celta has had 61% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 11 corner kicks, and 86% of the correct passes. With 3 conceded goals in the first half and 2 more in the second half, Celta has lost this match 5-1. Celta is in 17th place in the standings with 34 points, just 5 points above the relegation zone, and the season is now getting tough for Celta. Celta has had some good games this season, but overall, they haven’t been good enough, offensively or defensively. Iago Aspas is Celta’s captain and a top goal scorer with 13 goals. Denis Suarez added 5 assists for Celta this season. Junca, Alvarez, Suarez, and Beltran are all injured and will not be in the lineup for this game. I think that Celta has enough quality to stay outside the relegation zone, but they must keep playing as they did before this terrible loss to Mallorca.
Betis is a disaster, nothing more or nothing less. Despite their terrible form, Betis is in 13th place with 37 points, and they should be safe to stay in LaLiga for another season. Their offense is solid with 43 scored goals, but Betis’ defense is really bad, and they conceded 54 goals. Moron has scored 9 goals for Betis so far, while Joaquin added 8 goals, and Fekir has 7 goals. There are no injuries for Betis, but Fekir is suspended because of the red card. In their latest LaLiga game against Villarreal at home, Betis has had 46% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 1 corner kick, and 83% of the correct passes. Betis was losing 0-2 at the half-time, and maybe if Fekir was smarter and didn’t concede 2 yellow cards in 3 minutes, Betis would have had a chance at catching up, but with a player less on the field, it was game over for Betis and they lost this match 0-2. Since the season was restarted, Betis has 4 losses, 1 draw, and only 1 win, but thanks to their solid first half of the season, Betis is quite high in the standings. I was going to say that the schedule is on the easier side for Betis, but considering their terrible form, there are no easy games for Betis.
Celta’s home record this season is 5-6-5, while Betis has lost their last 4 away games. Celta needs every point they can get, and there is absolutely nothing that would make me side with Betis here. These are the team of equal quality, but Celta is in the better form despite the terrible loss in their last game. I’m going to stick with Celta.
