On the evening of the 19th of April, the 33rd round of the Spanish championship will be played at the Stadio Benito Villamarín. Local Betis will try to earn 3 points against Elche. Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be viewed at 1xbet.
Betis shared points with Sociedad in their last game. The teams did not score any goals against each other. Thus, Pellegrini’s charges have continued their unbeaten streak in the Spanish championship, which now consists of 5 matches (3 victories and 2 global victories).
The Andalusians are fifth in the standings. They have 57 points on their account. The difference from the 2nd, 3rd and 4th teams is only 3 points. This means that the battle for the Champions League zone is only gathering pace.
This season, Betis are playing quite well at home – 29 points have been earned in 16 matches. All the indicators of the team in the home are as follows: 9 wins, 2 draws and 5 defeats. 31 goals scored and 19 conceded.
Until recently, Elche was considered one of the fighters for survival, but today the situation has changed. A number of successful matches allowed the Levantines to score already 35 points, and climb to 13th place in the standings. The gap from the relegation zone is already 7 points.
In the previous meeting, Francisco Rodriguez’s side were 3-0 stronger than Mallorca at home.
As for the away performance by the Greens and Whites. Their results here are mediocre: 3 wins, 3 draws and 10 defeats. 15 goals scored and 27 conceded. For comparison, in the home arena, the team scored 20 goals and conceded 17. Elche’s last away game ended in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Athletic Bilbao.
As I see it, Elche’s main problem this season is their low output. In 32 games, only 35 goals have been scored.
Statistics of head-to-head encounters
In the first round of La Liga Elche did not manage to oppose Betis at home. The Andalusians were 0-3 stronger.
In 8 of the last 10 away games, Elche have scored at least one goal each.
6 of the previous 8 away games (in the Primera) ended with a total of more than 2.5.
Prediction and bet on Real Betis – Elche. Outcome with cf. 1,92
Betis is a team that still has a real chance to be even on the 3rd line in the standings. I’m sure Pellegrini’s charges are motivated off the charts right now. I expect them to play attacking football in the coming midweek. I’m sure they will only play to win.
Elche have pulled away from the relegation zone. The team is no longer in danger of relegation. Now the players can play without any pressure. Of course, they are unlikely to win now, but they will definitely create problems for their opponent.
My prediction. I’m betting on both sides to score.
