Real Betis and Valencia are clashing at Estadio de la Cartuja in the Copa del Rey Finals. Betis has lost to Elche in their last game, but overall, their form has been solid. Valencia hasn’t been at their best lately, but they are a good team with a lot of talent, and they certainly have a good chance at winning this trophy.
Betis has gotten to the finals of this competition by beating Rayo Vallecano in the semifinals, and this is the only trophy they could win this season. in their last 2 games, Betis hasn’t scored a single goal, but they have also conceded only 1, which is not bad. In LaLiga, Betis is in 5th place with 57 points, they have scored 56 goals in 33 games while conceding 38 goals in 33 games. Iglesias is the leading goalscorer for Betis in this competition with 4 goals, and he will be in the lineup for this game. Overall, Betis has had a solid season, they have gotten pretty far in the Europa League, but they just weren’t consistent enough to get further.
Valencia hasn’t won any of their last 4 games while losing their last 2 games in a row. During that streak, Valencia has conceded 4 goals, they have scored only 2 goals in their last 4 games, and they are struggling right now. In LaLiga, Valencia is now in 10th place, they have 42 points, and they will not qualify for any of the European competitions next season. Guedes and Duro have each scored 2 goals for Valencia so far in this competition, but this will be a hard game for them. In the semifinals, Valencia has beaten Bilbao, but at that point, they were playing really well, which is not the case now. Valencia is a solid team, they have the offense, they have the midfield, but their defense is just not there yet. This will be an intense game for Valencia, but I think they have a good chance at getting a positive result here, possibly even a trophy.
Neither of these two teams is doing well at the moment, but Betis has been far more consistent this season than Valencia. I think this will be a rough game, it will be a tense battle, and for that reason, I think this will be a draw in the regular time.
