They have won seven out of 11 league games this season, the only loss being 2-1 away at Leganes. Home form has produced four wins and two draws with 23 goals scored, 12 more than any other La Liga competitor. The last 42 home league games have been played withour defeat so Betis have a massive task on their hands.

Their last league game was a thrilling 3-3 home draw with Celta de Vigo, leading 2-0 and trailing 3-2 before grabbing an 87th minute equalizer.

Away league form has seen one win, two draws and two defeats scoring just once but only conceding three. Their only goal came in the 1-0 win at Girona. Betis have had some success in the Europa League including a 2-1 away win at Milan. They have lost their last eight away games against Barcelona regularly conceding at least three goals.
