Real Betis and Atletico Madrid are clashing at Benito Villamarin in round 27 of the Spanish LaLiga. Betis was in good form for a while, but they have now failed to win in their last 3 games, and they have scored only 3 goals during that streak. Atletico Madrid has found their footing, well in some ways, and they are now undefeated in their last 3 games.

Betis is still in 3rd place in LaLiga, and they have 46 points, 48 scored goals, and 32 conceded goals, but their offense seems to be very inconsistent. The bad news for Betis is Barcelona is right behind them with only 1 point less, and they are playing much better right now. In the Europa League, Betis will be playing against Eintracht at home, and that is a game they can certainly win. Juanmi is the leading goalscorer for Betis with 12 goals, while Iglesias added 7 goals. Canales and Fekir have each added 5 assists. The injury and suspension list are really long for Betis, and they have a lot of players who will miss this game. Betis has shown us they can play well, and they are close to the top of the table, which I didn’t expect, but they are having problems with consistency.

Atletico Madrid is slowly finding their form, but I don’t think their defensive issues are gone. Atletico has conceded 34 goals, which is the most of all the top 8 teams in the league. As far as scoring goals, Atletico has done well this season, and they have scored 47 goals so far. Correa is still the leading goalscorer for Atletico with 11 goals, while Suarez has added 9 goals. Wass, Cunha, Kondogbia, Savic, and Hermoso are all injured. After this game, Atletico will play against Cadiz, while after that, Atletico will play against Manchester United in the Champions League. It’s good that Atletico’s form is improving, but they are still not where they want to be defensively, and they need to work on that. Atletico is good enough to beat United, but their defense is filled with holes, and they will need to plug at least some of them if they want to advance.

Betis has slowed down a bit, while Atletico is picking up the pace. Atletico has also been a bit better defensively, but still not good enough to stop Betis and their solid offense.
