This Sunday sees Betis go head to head with Almería at the Estadio Benito Villamarin – Kick-off 9:00pm GMT.

Almería will travel to Betis, as fifteenth plays fifth in the table.

It’s 16 points so far for Real Betis this season, going into this meeting

Whilst a disappointing 0-0 draw against Real Valladolid in their last game, is not the worst result they could have experienced, Betis will be keen to improve the result in this fixture.

Also, Betis keep finding ways to win, having secured five victories in their last eight matches is astonishing this season. With a fifth position in the league and 5 wins, 2 losses and 1 draws, they currently have 16 points in the League having won five meetings, drawn one game, and lost two fixtures.

When Betis host Almería, they will do so on the back of four victories on their own ground.

Real Betis will have 19 points if they manage to secure a victory.

A solid defensive team

It’s an easy statement to make, but to win you simply have to score more goals than your opponent. Betis have been consistently applying this principle, whilst remaining defensively solid as a unit this season, with five goals in their previous fixtures. Betis have scored an impressive 10 goals so far this season (7 from open play and three penalties), however their performances have at times been average. This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Borja Iglesias (6), Juanmi (2), and Sergio Canales (1).

Manuel Pellegrini will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of three of his Betis players.

With the LaLiga season well into its stride, Almería have managed to gain seven points

With two wins in a row under his belt, Rubi takes his Almería team into this game full of confidence, and hopeful of another successive victory.

Also, Almería have now lost four of their last five meetings, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Rubi. They currently stand fifteenth in the League, with seven points for a total of 2 wins, 5 losses and 1 draws having won two games, drawn one game, and lost five fixtures.

Almería will travel to Betis with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one draw and three losse.

Almería will see 10 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Almería’s squad has depth, but even so, Rubi is likely to be missing five of they key players when they start Sunday’s game.
