Malaga vs Real Betis Preview

 

Malaga vs Real Betis

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio La Rosaleda

Date: 18th December 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Malaga are on a mini revival after a dreadful start to their league season and with Real Betis not in this best of shape right now, they will be looking to take all three points here.

The hosts are currently still in the relegation zone and will remain there even if they win however they seem to have picked up some form and will soon be out of that scrap if they continue their revival.

They have lost only one of their last five league games and that came against Real Madrid away from home.

They have also impressively won two and drawn one of their last three games making it very possible for them to pick apart Betis in this game.

Real Betis have shown signs of sharp decline in form over the past few weeks and that should be a genuine cause of worry for their fans.

In their last game against Atletico Madrid, they gave a good account of themselves but they still head into this game with no win in their last seven games, five of those ending in losses.

They have also lost their goal scoring prowess as three of their last 4 league games have ended in them not scoring.

Only bottom of the table last Palmas have conceded more goals than Betis this season as they have let in 1.93 goals per game and 2.29 goals per away game.

Gonzalo Castro has scored in three of his last four games and could come good for them in this game.
