Betis vs Alaves, stats, odds. In the Spanish championship match on January 18, the Whites and Greens take on the unstoppable Glorious. What to expect from this encounter?
Betis played a Spanish Cup match against their fellow countrymen from Sevilla on Saturday. Already on the 39th minute the match was stopped after a heavy object flew to Joan Jordan from the stands and injured the player of “nevi”.
As a result, the game was halted at 1-1, but the next day the game was over and the Beticos headed into the quarter-finals of the tournament. The team did well in the Europa League group stage, with three victories and a draw, which earned them a ticket to the play-offs, where the Bianconeri will kick off very soon.
The team are well on their way in the Primera. In 20 rounds, Manuel Pellegrini’s charges have scored 10 wins and four draws, which have brought them 34 points and third place in the standings. We cannot fail to mention the third best quality of attacking play in the league, with 33 occasions.
After two successive defeats, the Sevillians shared the tournament points with Rayo Vallecano (1-1) on the road.
William José, Bartra, Joaquin, Miranda, Bravo, Akuoka and Montoya, who has an Achilles problem, cannot play today.
Alaves failed to surprise this season – six straight defeats to start, followed by a confident win over the reigning champions. Such success gave hope in the hearts of the team’s fans and helped the Glorious to temporarily leave the relegation zone.
Unfortunately, they didn’t have enough energy for long and after 20 rounds of the current championship, the Bilo-Syni recorded four wins and five peaceful outcomes, which brought 17 points and 18th place in the relegation zone. The Basques’ performance is abysmal on the attacking line, which has differed just 16 times.
In the last five rounds, the Bean destroyers lost twice and drew three times – against Getafe (1-1), Real Sociedad (1-1) and Athletic (0-0). It was a fiasco for Jose Mendilibar’s side in the Sun Cup, who lost their opening game against the Unas (3-0) to a more than modest Linares (1-2).
Ponce and Navarro, who has a knee injury, cannot play today.
Alaves are going through a difficult time, and the change of coach, who had only two weeks, is unlikely to radically change the situation in the league of the Primera. “Betis are in great form, as they proved in the derby at the weekend. We assume that the Sevillians will take advantage of their excellent physical form and get the win through class and great motivation.
Our prediction is an Asian handicap (-1) on Betis and we’ll bet on it at 1xbet nigeria at 1.96
Sevilla’s representatives have won the last three face-offs, who are on the rise today as well. “Alaves have lost four away fixtures in a row, with the hosts having the opposite statistics. We expect the traditional scenario of recent years and the Beticos’ confident success at the expense of class and great motivation.
Our second bet is a two-goal win for Betis at 4.65
