Real Betis is hosting Sevilla at Benito Villamarin in round 17 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Betis is hot and cold this season, and they are continuing in the same rhythm from last season despite having a talented team. Betis has had some good games as of late, but it's simply not enough. With 19 points, 19 scored goals, and massive 30 conceded goals, Betis is in 10th place in the standings, and they are the worst defensive team in LaLiga. In their last LaLiga game, Betis was playing against Levante on the road, and they have had 62% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a decent 84% of the correct passes. Once again Betis’ defense has been terrible, and they were losing 4-1 in the 55th minute. Levante conceded a red card in the 68th minute, and Betis was able to score 2 goals, but they haven’t had enough strength to fully get back. Betis has lost this match 4-3. Tello is the leading goalscorer for Betis with 4 goals, while Canales added 3 goals and 5 assists. Camaras and Carvalho are injured, while Bravo and Bartra are still questionable for this game. Betis has the team to compete for the Europa League, but their defense is terrible, and because of that I don’t see them getting there.
Sevilla is on a nice roll, and they have won 5 of their last 6 games, while 1 game ended in a draw. During this stretch, Sevilla has scored 11 goals while conceding only 2 goals. Defensively, Sevilla is one of the best teams in LaLiga, and even though they have the talent in the attacking end, it takes them a lot of chances to score a goal. Sevilla was hosting Villarreal in their latest LaLiga game, and they have had 43% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a decent 82% of the correct passes. Sevilla was solid on the defensive end, while they scored 2 goals, and Sevilla has won this game 2-0. With this win, Sevilla has climbed to 4th place with 26 points, 17 scored goals, and 10 conceded goals, but Villarreal and Barcelona are right behind them. Sevilla will also be playing in the knockout stage in the Champions League where they will face Borussia Dortmund. En-Nesyri is still the leading goalscorer for Sevilla with 5 goals, while Ocampos now has 3 goals and 3 assists. Escudero and Vaclik are the only two injured players for Sevilla at the moment. I think Sevilla is one of the best teams in Spain, but they will need more than good defense to stay in the Champions League battle.
Betis hasn’t won any of their last 3 games against Sevilla, while Sevilla hasn’t lost in their last 6 games overall. The trends are on Sevilla’s side in this game, but Betis could surprise here. I know that Sevilla is struggling in the attacking end, but Betis is horrible defensively, and for that reason, I will take goals here.
