Real Betis vs Espanyol
Competition – Spanish Primera
Stadium – Benito Villamarín
Date: 29th April 2019
Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT
The 9th and 10th placed teams in Spain will go head to head as they try to finish the season inside a Europa League place when this season comes to an end and we expect an interesting game.
Real Betis are struggling for form at the worst possible time of the season as they come here having lost their last three league games on the spin and also have just 1 win and 1 draw from their last seven games.
Another defeat here and a win for the teams below them could send them down to 13th in the league table by the end of this game.
Espanyol have recovered from a slow start to the season to be contending for a Europa League place.
Their slow start to the season means that they have to end their season well or risk getting relegated and they have managed that task well.
They come here 9th in the league table having not lost any of their last 5 games. Only two of those games were wins but they have been solid and should give a good account of themselves in this game.
Espanyol have the chance to move to 8th by end of this game if Alaves lose and that should motivate them to target the win in this game.
Bookmakers have priced Real Betis up as slight favourites to come out on top in this game while Espanyol will start the game as underdogs.
Goal markets point to a lively game as over 2.5 goal is currently trading odds-on while Borja Iglesias is favourite to score the opening goal of the game followed by Giovani Lo Celso and Loren Moron.
This game gets underway at 20:00 BST.
