Pick: Real Betis or Draw (Double Chance)
Odds: 11/8
Bookmaker: PaddyPower
(All betting odds correct at time of writing: 29 October 2021)

Preview: Not since December 2011 has Real Betis celebrated a La Liga victory on the road at Atletico Madrid. However this is prime time opportunity for Manuel Pellegrini’s in-form charges, who must surely fancy their chances of extending the winless run of Diego Simeone’s faltering Spanish champions.

Atletico Madrid – Title defence been limp thus far?

Thursday’s 2-2 draw away at Levante continued a number of negative trends for Diego Simeone’s faltering side. The first of those being no win in their last three outings in all competitions, which is their longest barren sequence since February. Each of these games has seen their once revered backline concede on at least two instances, having gone without a clean sheet in six of their past seven competitive fixtures.

In difficult moments, Atletico could always fall back on their defence to reignite a bout of good form, but this appears speculative at best right now. As such, they run the risk of falling even further behind the pace set by Real Sociedad, whose lead on the defending champions has grown to five points with Los Colchoneros – boasting only two wins from five home La Liga games this season (D3) – languishing down in sixth.

Key Stat: While unbeaten as hosts in La Liga outings so far this term (W2 D3), Atletico Madrid host Real Betis – a club they have defeated eight of the last nine times here in Madrid – on the back of three draws in their last four here at the Wanda Metropolitano.


Draw & Both Teams to Score



Real Betis – Verdiblancos in top-four reckoning?

Whereas their upcoming opponents at the Wanda Metropolitano were stuttering to another disappointing outcome earlier in the week, Manuel Pellegrini’s men continued their excellent start to the season by notching their third consecutive league win to climb into La Liga’s top four. In all competitions they have won six of their last eight (D1 L1) and lost once in eleven games since the start of September.

On current form then, Los Verdiblancos make their way to Madrid with outstanding claims of picking up just their second positive result (win or draw) in ten such visits to Atletico Madrid. They have won three of their last four away La Liga games, and while none of the opposition were much to write home about (Alaves, Granada and Osasuna), confidence is evidently oozing through this team.

Key Stat: Real Betis come into Sunday’s clash two positions and as many points better off than their opponents, after their best start to a La Liga campaign in recent memory (W6 D3 L2).

Atletico Madrid Vs Real Betis Betting Advice

It is a case of form versus fixture at the Wanda Metropolitano. As while the recent form of Real Betis towers over that of Atletico Madrid, the latter’s dominant head-to-head record does mean it remains difficult turning a blind eye to a run which has seen them win eight of the previous nine meetings as the home side. Nevertheless, I cannot be having the hosts as such a short-price favourite.


Atletico Madrid Vs Real Betis – Key Facts:

  • As hosts, Atletico Madrid are unbeaten in eight La Liga meetings, winning seven, versus Real Betis, who have managed to avoid defeat in this fixture only once since a 2-0 win in December 2011.
  • Real Betis haven’t even managed a goal across the past five La Liga heads-to-heads in Madrid. However, they are yet to fire a blank in any of their away league games this season (W3 D1 L1).
  • Atletico boast only two wins from their five home La Liga games this term (D3), and come into this contest having conceded two or more in their last three matches in all competitions (D2 L1).


In five home La Liga outings in 2021-22, Atletico Madrid won only twice, drawing the other three. Two of these ended 2-2 against similar opposition (leaders Real Sociedad and Europa League holders Villarreal). Of course, they did beat Barca here, but they’re not the force of old. Betis are unbeaten in 10 of their last 11 in all competitions, winning six of the last eight, and scored in all five away La Liga games this season.
