Real Betis vs Villarreal: Can anyone stop Villarreal?
Real Betis vs Villarreal: Match preview
We expected a lot more from Betis players when it comes to this championship. Namely, the Andalusians are currently on the 13th place on the table and apparently this season they will not be able to reach the placement in the Europa League. They have as many as ten points less in relation to the seventh-placed team on the table.
As for Villarreal, this team has really been reborn after the continuation of the championship, and at this moment they are in a position that brings a place in the Europa League at the end of the championship. Still, it seems that the “yellow submarine” is capable of something more.
Real Betis team news:
In the last round, Betis suffered another defeat, away to Levante, when it was 4: 2. What should be pointed out is the fact that the Andalusians were losing 4: 0 at one point in the duel, but they scored two goals in the last phase of the match and thus mitigated the defeat.
Before that duel, the team of coach Trujillo achieved a very important victory at home against Espanyol, when it was 1: 0. It is a real miracle that the Andalusians scored only one goal in that match, as they missed several extraordinary opportunities.
What is the biggest problem for Betis when it comes to this season is certainly the fact that they are not constant and play according to the hot-cold system, which is why they are so low on the table.
As for the duel at home, the Andalusians have played sixteen matches at home so far, in which they have achieved eight triumphs, four draws and four defeats, which is not so bad. The biggest problem is that they have achieved only one victory.
Probable lineup: Robles, Mandi, Feddal, Sidnei, Barragan, Alena, Guardado, Moreno, Fekir, Canales, Iglesias.
Villarreal team news:
Few expected Villarreal players to play such good games this season. We are thinking especially of the form after the break due to pandemic, when this team started with really extraordinary games.
Namely, the “yellow submarine” is currently in sixth place in the table and is only three points behind the fourth-placed Sevilla, and it is known that the fourth place brings placement in the Champions League. On the side the current position in which Villarreal is located brings placement in the Europa League, which would also be a success.
In the last round, the team from “El Madrigal” played another phenomenal match, as they defeated Valencia at home without any major problems. That match ended with the result 2: 0. Before that, the “yellow submarine” drew at home against Sevilla in an extremely interesting match, when it was 2: 2.
What should be especially emphasized is the fact that the Villarreal players do not know about the defeat after the continuation of the championship. In that period they achieved as many as four victories and the mentioned draw with Sevilla.
As for the matches on the side, so far the “yellow submarine” has played sixteen duels off its field. In those matches they have recorded as many as seven triumphs, only one draw and eight defeats.
Probable lineup: Asenjo, Gaspar, Albiol, Torres, Moreno, Chukwueze, Iborra, Anguissa, Cazorla, Moreno, Alcacer.
What is a tradition when it comes to these two teams are goals, which, according to the unwritten rule, there are a lot of them. For example, in the last duel between these two teams, the “yellow submarine” celebrated at home with 5: 1. In each of the previous five matches both teams scored.
That is why also expect a lot of goals in this match.
