Betis: Team information, moment form
Betis begins to reduce the difference from the European places, because the team is on the right track. After the failure of the local derby with Sevilla, the “white-greens” defeated Valencia on their own ground, with a score of 2-1. Victoria was fully tasted by supporters, as the decisive goal came in the 90 + 3 minute, from the leg of S. Canales. Last stage, Betis overtook Mallorca, where he managed to win with the same score of 2-1. On their own ground, the hosts lost only to Sevilla and Valladolid in the current La Liga season.
Bilbao: Information about the team, moment form
Bilbao is going through an excellent period, with 4 victories recorded in the previous 5 stages of the championship. They reached the 5th position in La Liga, just 5 points away from Barcelona and Real Madrid. The Basques easily beat Granada in the previous stage, 2-0 on their own ground. The last defeat of Bilbao took place on October 26. Then they lost to Wanda Metropolitano with a score of 1-0. But the team’s game has improved since then, receiving only 3 goals in 6 stages.
Real Betis vs Athletic Bilbao Picks
Although Bilbao has a well-organized defense, today I expect to see goals. Guests have excellent morale and have every reason to play for victory. On the other side, Betis always puts pressure on their own ground and the hosts are unlikely to score. If the score opens in the first half, spaces will appear and the show will surely be at home.
Our Prediction: Over 1.5
