Real Betis vs Villarreal Preview

 

Real Betis vs Villarreal

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Benito Villamarín

Date: 3rd February 2018

Kick-off time – 15:15 GMT

Real Betis are one of the best sides to watch on their day but they have been so inconsistent you never quite know if they will be a good team or terrible one on match day.

They have the third worst defencive record in La Liga this term as they have conceded 2.1 goals per game on average.

They have lost 3 and won 3 of their last 6 games, scoring an average of 2 goals in each of those games, while keeping just 1 clean sheet.

Javier Calleja has done an outstanding job at Villarreal even though he hasn’t gotten as much credit as he should.

He took a team that lost its top scorer and has been stricken with so many injuries to within the Champions League places in 5th position.

They come into this game just 1 point behind Real Madrid and 3 behind Valencia who have started dropping points.

A win here would move them inside the top four and on the evidence of current form they should be able to achieve that here.

Villarreal have won 1.55 points per game this season and head into this game off the back of four consecutive wins in all competitions.
