Next Sunday at 4:15pm GMT, on matchday 11 of the LaLiga, we will see Betis play Atleti at the Estadio Benito Villamarin.

Atleti go to the Estadio Benito Villamarin with Champion’s League dreams for next season very much alive. They currently sit in fourth as they take on fifth placed Betis.

Betis come to this match on the back of a 0-0 away draw against Cádiz at Estadio Ramon de Carranza.

Also, Betis keep finding ways to win, having secured six victories in their last 10 games is astonishing this season. Now they have 6 matches won, 2 games lost and 2 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in fifth place, with a total of 20 points having won six matches, drawn two fixtures, and lost two meetings.

Playing at home, Betis have won five games.

Winning this fixture will see Real Betis on 23 points.

A solid defensive team

Betis have conceded six goals so far, so their defence can be considered to be strong. This has been an average season so far, in terms of performance and entertainment, even though they have delivered a decent rate of goals (13). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Borja Iglesias (7), Juanmi (2), and William Carvalho (2).

Injury and illness have depleted Manuel Pellegrini’s Betis and they will likely be missing three key personnel for Sunday’s match.

Atletico Madrid face their opponents, equal on points, both teams will doubtless be keen to make progress

Good atacking and defensive team

Atleti have a solid defence, with only eight goals conceded in their previous fixtures. Atleti will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (16). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Alvaro Morata (5), Antoine Griezmann (3), and Angel Correa (3).
