Real Betis hosts Athletic Bilbao in round 28 of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Sunday, March 13th at Estadio Benito Villamarín (Sevilla)
Betis failed to withstand the test of really strong opponents. In the round before last, the Green-Whites lost to Sevilla (2-1). And last weekend they suffered a home defeat from Atlético Madrid (1-3). As a result, Manuel Pellegrini’s men left the top four. Currently, they are on the 5th line in the standings with 46 points, lagging two points behind the Champions League zone. Betis earned 23 points at home and away. All home results of the Green-Whites look like this: seven victories, two draws, and five defeats with a goal difference of 26-18. Eight out of 14 games ended with Over 2.5 goals scored.

Athletic Bilbao celebrated the third home victory in a row a week ago. The Basques were stronger than Levante with a score of 3-1. After that success, they have 40 points in their assets and are in the 8th position in the standings. The gap to the top six was reduced to four points. Yes, five previous away matches of the Lions ended with high production. At the same time, Athletic Bilbao remains a low-scoring team. It scored 32 goals and conceded 26 times. All away results of the Lions look like this: three victories, eight draws, and three losses with a goal difference of 10-12. 11 of 14 away matches ended with Under 2.5 goals scored.
Athletic Bilbao beat Betis in the first half of the season (3-2). In addition, the Basques scored at least one goal in nine of the 11 previous head-to-head matches at Estadio Benito Villamarín. Betis is not in the best shape right now. The team suffered two defeats in the last two LaLiga matches. Beyond that, on March 9, the Andalusians lost to Eintracht Frankfurt in the first leg of the Europa League 1/8 finals (1-2). Consequently, they are in poor physical and mental condition. What about the Basques? Their mood is definitely good because they managed to earn three points in the last round. Nevertheless, I have a feeling that the teams won’t determine the winner in the upcoming game.
