Real Sociedad vs Betis Prediction 3 February 2022

Real Sociedad hosts Betis in the Spanish Copa del Rey quarterfinals. The match will be played on Thursday, February 3rd at Reale Arena (San Sebastian)
Real Sociedad failed to beat Getafe in the last official match (0-0). Of course, it was not the best result. Still, it was enough to extend the unbeaten streak to five matches in all tournaments: two draws and three victories. Thus, Alguacil’s men have never lost in 2022. They returned to the European competition zone and took sixth place (34 points scored). The gap to the Champions League zone is only two points. Let’s look at the situation in the Spanish Cup. Like the bulk of the representatives of LaLiga, Real Sociedad played four matches in this tournament. The Basques eliminated such teams as Panaderia Pulido (0-4), Zamora (0-3), Leganes (2-3), and Atletico Madrid (2-0). Four of their last five games in the Copa del Rey ended with “Both teams to score — no.”

Betis is holding the best season in recent years. The team is in third place in the standings of the Spanish championship with 40 points earned in 22 matches. The gap from the fourth-ranked Atlético Madrid is four points. At the moment, Manuel Pelligrini’s men are in very good shape. In the previous five matches in all tournaments, they gained four victories and one draw. And Betis scored at least two goals in all the victorious games. In the current Cup draw, the Andalusians had quite serious opponents: Alicante (0-4), Talavera (2-4), Valladolid (0-3), and Sevilla (2-1). Naturally, a victory in the Andalusian derby should give the Green-Whites additional confidence.
Last December, Real Sociedad and Betis played in the first round of LaLiga. And the Green-Whites confidently won at Estadio Benito Villamarin (4-0). Eight previous head-to-head confrontations between these teams ended with Over 2.5 goals scored. Real Sociedad and Betis are equal teams that are in very good condition at the moment. In addition, they have a lot of great performers in their lineups. This means that the upcoming match promises to be very interesting. The Basques have a slight advantage in the form of their native stadium. They usually show good results in home matches against the Andalusians (namely, they have not lost at home since 2003). But now Pellegrini’s men will offer decent resistance, so we should wait for a rather productive game.

Prediction for the match:

Over 2.5 goals scored
