Real Betis vs Espanyol

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium –  Benito Villamarín

Date: 17th March 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Betis are enjoying a fine season as they close in on a Europa League place.

They are one of the best attacking teams in the league this season and their style of play has brought some fresh air into the league.

Over half of their home games have seen both teams score while their league games this season has produced 99 goals for the two teams combined.

Betis have the third worst defence in the league and could concede a couple of goals from their visitors here if they are not careful.

Espanyol have made a habit of beating big teams this season, yet their season has not been as positive as many would have expected.

They have however, shown some signs of improvement recently as they head into this match off the back of 7 games unbeaten.

They drew 5 of those games, but they have been impressive going forward recently with Gerard Moreno proving over and over again what an important player he is.

Espanyol have failed to score in just one of their last 8 games, while both teams have netted in 6 of their last 8 games.
