Why Real Betis can beat Valencia
Real Betis had a solid season last year when they won the Copa del Rey and finished fifth in La Liga. This season, they will also miss out on a Champions League spot after Real Sociedad join Barca, Madrid and Atleti in top-tier European competition. Real Betis will join Villarreal in the Europa League next season.
The duel to stay in the top six is assured for Los Verderones, since Athletic CLub, in seventh place, is eight points behind them. The Verdiblancos must continue to assert their offensive power, where they can add 11.1 total shots, 4.0 corner kicks and 1.2 goals in 37 games this season, which have resulted in 45 goals and 24 assists. However, Betis only has a goal differential of +5.
It is not frequent in recent games that Real Betis has shown defensive steel. Despite these issues, Real Betis have kept 13 clean sheets averaging 17.5 tackles, 9.5 interceptions and 21.0 clearances per game. They are winning 51.3% of their games and commit just 10.9 fouls and 2.1 yellow cards per game.
Coach Manuel Pellegrini will have to face this game without some key players. Nabil Fekir, who is one of the team’s best midfielders, is ruled out for the remainder of the season due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury. Víctor Ruiz is a doubt to make an appearance in this home game.
Borja Iglesias will continue adding to his tally of 15 goals and three assists. Joaquín, who will retire after this season, will get his last start and will look to add to his two-assist tally this season. Ayoze Pérez, who has scored two goals and one assist this season, will also play on the opposite side. Juanmi, Sergio Canales and William Carvalho have combined for 11 goal appearances and will also be involved in the attack. Real Betis are hoping for double-digit wins at home as they only have a 9-4-5 record at home.
Why can Valencia beat Real Betis?
Valencia needs to have a massive transformation this season. Despite being 13th in the table, Los Che remains a relegation candidate with just 41 points won in 37 games. Snatching the three points will put Valencia in the same place, without relegation being a concern.
The Murciélagos come from a 2-2 draw against Espanyol. Valencia had 53% possession of the ball, 19 total shots and 10 corner kicks in that game. Valencia opened the scoring with Diego López Noguerol scoring a goal in the 38th minute. However, Espanyol came from behind with two goals in the 40th and 50th minute. Samuel Lino’s equalizing goal in the 93rd minute resulted in both teams they will share the loot.
The Bats have a -3 goal difference (41-44), and their 3-3-12 road record is fourth worst in the league. However, the Bats are capable of generating upsets at any time this season. They have done so with victories against Real Madrid, Celta Vigo, Osasuna and Girona. However, the Valencians need to improve their season stats of 12.9 total shots, 9.1 successful dribbles and 6.0 corners per game.
Samuel Lino and Justin Kluivert jointly lead the squad with six goals. Edinson Cavani has provided five goals and two assists, while Hugo Guillamon and Andre Almeida lead in assists with four. Samu Castillejo and José Luis Gaya have eight combined goal and assist contributions for Valencia.
Coach Rubén Baraja should be able to pull off every trick up his sleeve against the top six team. However, he must try to survive without the services of Marcos Andre and Toni Lato. Thierry Correia and Samu Castillejo also doubt to make an appearance. Samuel Lino, Justin Kluivert and Diego López Noguerol will likely form Valencia’s attacking trio. André Almeida will be accompanied by Javi Guerra and Nicolás González in midfield.
Real Betis-Valencia Final Prediction and Prediction
