Sunday’s late La Liga (LL) kick-off sees Betis line up against in-form Valladolid at the Benito Villamarín. Both sides could move into the top six with a win should other results go their way.
Betis’ eight-game unbeaten run in all competitions (W4, D4) came to an end last time out with a 1-0 defeat at Atlético Madrid, which saw Quique Setién’s men fail to get a single shot on target for the first time since November last year. Betis (12 pts, W3, D3, L2), who have lost just one of their last ten home LL games, now sit behind Valladolid only on goal difference.
After enduring a dreadful start to life back in the top flight – just three points from the opening five games – Valladolid have turned around their fortunes and they will be aiming to make it four league wins on the bounce, having previously defeated Levante, Villarreal and Huesca. The three-game winning streak has lifted Sergio González’s outfit into seventh spot ahead of this round of fixtures.
The last encounter between these sides in the top tier came in the 2013/14 campaign, when Betis beat Valladolid in a seven-goal thriller at the Villamarín. Valladolid have picked up at least a point in half of their 28 previous top-flight trips to Betis (W3, D11, L14).
Players to watchLoren has just two LL goals to his name so far this season, but they have been worth six points to Betis as they were game winners against Girona and Leganés.
Valladolid’s Leo Suárez (169 min) boasts two goals from just four shots this campaign.
Stat attack: Betis are yet to score a first-half goal this season. They have netted all of their eight goals in all competitions in the second-half.
Valladolid have kept a clean sheet in three of their four away LL games (W1, D3).
Betis have lost just one of the six league matches in which they have been level at the break (W3, D2).
