Competition: La Liga
Market: Real Betis win
Chances: 7/11 @888sport
Desperate to get a much-needed boost on Sunday afternoon, Real Betis will welcome Cadiz to the Benito Villamarin Stadium.
Starting with the hosts, who crashed 1-0 away to Atlético Madrid last weekend with a 1-0 defeat in the capital, Real Betis will be desperate to claim a decisive boost on Sunday afternoon. However, while Los Verdiblancos could be in serious trouble ahead of the international break, Manuel Pellegrini’s side should smell a golden opportunity here. Glad to be back at Estadio Benito Villamarin this weekend, the former West Ham boss has seen his team amass seven points in their last three La Liga games on home soil. Ahead of a two-week break with a well-deserved 1-0 victory over Mallorca in Sevilla, Betis should also be thrilled by a stellar result against the visitors on Sunday. It should be noted that Betis are unbeaten in each of the last six meetings with Yellow Submarine.
As for the away side, while Cadiz may have almost clung to their La Liga status last season, Sergio Gonzalez’s team found themselves in the middle of another relegation. Having marked their return from the international break with a dismal performance on home soil as they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Sevilla, the Andalusian team now has just one point away from slipping into the drop zone. Having not won any of their last four top-flight matches, the former Valladolid boss will know that his team faces another big test on Sunday afternoon. It should also be noted that without beating Real Betis in the last six tries, Cadiz has built a reputation for their long-term problems away. In a series highlighted by a 4-1 rout against Athletic Bilbao, González’s men have not been able to win away since January 6.
