Real Betis Preview – Can Betis get out their slump and secure a first victory in six games?

It’s been a disappointing last four weeks for Betis who have been knocked out the Copa Del Rey and taken just two points from their last four in La Liga. It’s brought an end to what was a really strong and promising mid-part of the season where they would have had thoughts of challenging for one of the European slots. As it stands, Betis are now in 12th spot and nine points off of sixth place.
Not only that, but they are entering a really difficult stage of the campaign which sees them face Sevilla, Real Madrid and Valencia in the three games immediately after this match.
Our betting prediction:
Real Betis win and BTTS
21/10

Betis’ home form if pretty good with six wins and two draws from their 12 matches so far in the league. Three of those defeats have come against Sevilla, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla which is an indication of their strength when playing at home.
The last time Betis failed to score at home in La Liga was back in October 2018. A run of 26 straight league games where they have scored at least once.

Mallorca Preview – Will relegation-threatened Mallorca follow up their first win in five and move out the bottom three?

Having one promotion last season it was always likely to be a struggle for Mallorca to stay in the league. With 14 games left they are in the bottom three but level on points with Celta Vigo following a much needed win last weekend. The 1-0 victory at home to Alaves was Mallorca’s first win in five games across all competitions and just their second goal in that run of matches.

The biggest issue for Mallorca and why they are in their current predicament is their dire away form. Since coming up last season, the Islanders have managed to take just a point from their 11 away games in the league so far. That came in the middle of December when drawing 2-2 away to Celta.

You would assume, that if Mallorca are to stay in the league, they will have to begin to pick up more points on their travels. Their next away match following this is against Eibar who are three points ahead of them at the moment. With more difficult matches on the horizon you sense that they have to get at least three points from their next two away fixtures to give themselves a reasonable chance of survival.

Real Betis vs Mallorca Betting Advice

Betis are looking at doing the league double over Mallorca having defeated them 2-1 away at the end of November. In many ways it’s the perfect opponent for the hosts considering they are strong at home and coming up against a team with the worst away record in the league.
That said, they’ll also be aware that Mallorca are fighting for their lives at the moment and got a hugely important victory last time out.

Key Facts – Real Betis vs Mallorca Betting Tip

  • Betis have scored in all of their home games in La Liga so far this season
  • Mallorca have the worst away record in the division taking one point from 11 attempts
  • The first meeting of the season ended with Betis winning 2-1 back in November

 

Betis should have too much for Mallorca tomorrow but I’m reluctant to back them outright at such short odds. Instead, and taking into account that 10 of their home matches have had at least three goals in them, a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game is the selection.
