On Sunday afternoon, struggling Almeria hosts Real Betis at the Anexo Estadio de los Juegos del Mediterraneo as the two teams look for potentially vital La Liga points.Almeria form guide
The Andalusians are at the bottom of the table after a woeful campaign in the Spanish top flight. A 2-1 defeat at Getafe last time out in La Liga was their sixth straight loss in the Spanish top-flight.
The result also means that Almeria has failed to win their previous 17 games in the Liga, a record that dates back to last season. A big reason for that poor recent form in La Liga has been woeful defensive displays, as they have conceded at least two goals in ten of their last 11 matches.
Almeria have even struggled for home form, as they are winless in seven league games, having picked up just two draws and suffering five defeats.
Unsurprisingly, considering their position in the table, Almeria have conceded at least two goals in their last seven Liga games on home soil.Real Betis form guide
Los Verdiblancos head into this clash on the back of a 1-0 defeat at Sparta Prague. The loss ended a 13-game unbeaten run in all competitions.
Manuel Pellegrini’s team is now unbeaten in their last eight games in La Liga. A 1-0 home win over Las Palmas last time out in La Liga also means that Betis have won three of their previous four matches in the Spanish top-flight.
One facet of their game that needs to improve is their away form, as Betis have failed to win in their last six league games on their travels. However, they have drawn their previous four away matches in the Liga.What am I backing?
Almeria’s results don’t seem to be getting any better, while Betis’ recent domestic form has been solid. The bet I am backing is the away victory.
