Tip Betis - Real Madrid
With eight wins in their 14 away matches this season, it is not easy to tell whether Real Madrid have enjoyed more away from home in a campaign that has been below par in very many standards for the European champions. They have struggled against formidable sides when playing away from home and it will definitely not be easy against Real Betis, who are unbeaten in eight home matches and have lost just two of their 14 at home this season. Betis have not conceded at home in five of their last six matches while they have scored in seven of the last eight at home, and only failed to score in three of the 14 home games. Both sides have picked three wins in the last five La Liga matches and also lost in their last league outings and will be keen on returning to winning ways. Notably, their recent matches have not been high scoring; in the last five La Liga games, Betis matches have produced over 2.5 goals just twice while Real Madrid’s have seen the tally in just one. Though four of the last six meetings have produced over 2.5 goals, we expect the sides to be more cautious going to this game. In 44 meetings previously, Real Madrid have picked 23 wins and Betis eight.
Key points Betis - Real Madrid
Four of the last six meetings between the two have yielded over 2.5 goals.
Real Madrid have three wins in 12 away matches in the league.
Real Betis have not lost at home in the last eight matches.
Conclusion Betis - Real Madrid
The last match between these two sides produced eight goals, with Real scoring five, but that was last season. This season Real Madrid have struggled all through and no longer hold that potency. They have not been scoring a lot and have a poor league run away from home. They meet a Betis side more confident and facing a struggling Real, will want to give all for a win. A safe bet here is a pick of under 2.5 goals.
