Reason for Betis vs Athletic Bilbao Predictions
Betis recorded a slender 1:0 win over the visiting Osasuna on Monday. Since the turn of the year, the team is undefeated, winning five and three times ending in draws. Both of Betis’ two defeats across the last fourteen matches came away from home. Just two of their last eight games were won by the home sides, while the visitors triumphed three times for the period. Two of Betis’s last five clashes featured over 2.5 goals, as three saw both involved teams hit the targets. Nabil Fekir performs all the necessary tasks in the middle of the field, takes unique free kicks, which he has shown many times. Paul Akouokou found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the game on the field, and it’s hard to take the ball away from this guy. Borja Iglesias is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. Rodri plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
Athletic Bilbao trashed Betis when the two teams faced each other for the last time in November 2020 at San Mames. Athletic Bilbao suffered a 2:1 defeat away to Barcelona on Sunday. Prior to that meeting, the team was on a run of three straight victories and unbeaten in five. Three of Athletic’s eight matches in 2021 were against the Catalan giants, and their only two defeats for the process came at the hands of Barca. Three of the team’s last ten encounters were won by the home sides, while the visitors recorded five triumphs for the period. All of Athletic’s previous five meetings witnessed goals at both ends and resulted in over 2.5 goals. Muniain has excellent control of the ball, and he can play in several positions. Asier Villalibre enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and heads towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He does great in the penalty area. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
It is going to be a very tight clash in which both sides have the chance to take points. It won’t be surprising if the game ends in a draw.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. We don’t believe either side will keep the clean sheet.
