On Sunday night, Real Betis and Las Palmas go head-to-head at the Benito Villamarin as both teams look to extend their recent unbeaten runs in La Liga.Real Betis form guide
Manuel Pellegrini’s team is currently in seventh place in the Spanish top-flight table, just a point outside of the European berths.
A recent eight-game unbeaten run in La Liga has helped the boys from Betis maintain a healthy position in the standings.
Los Verdiblancos’ recent outings in the Spanish top flight have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in six of their previous eight matches in La Liga.
Real Betis have been strong on home soil lately, as they are unbeaten in seven home matches, having won four of their last five league games at the Benito Villamarin. They have also been relatively prolific in front of goal in La Liga at home, scoring at least two goals in their previous three games.Las Palmas form guide
The Islanders are in eighth place in the table and are enjoying a solid campaign. A victory in this clash would move them level on points with their hosts.
Las Palmas are unbeaten in three league games after a 1-1 draw with Osasuna last time out, although the draw ended a short two-game winning run for the visitors in the Spanish top-flight.
Garcia Pimienta’s team is also unbeaten in their previous three away games, having recorded two wins and a draw. Their recent away games in the Spanish top flight have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in eight of their previous ten games.
Las Palmas has failed to score in five of the last eight games on their travels in La Liga, which is a big reason for the lack of goals.What am I backing?
Both teams go into this clash in decent form. The bet I am backing is a narrow victory for the home team in a relatively even contest.
