Why you should back Real Betis
The Green-and-Whites are led offensively by Juanmi, who is tied for fifth in La Liga with 14 goals. The 28-year-old is due to break out of his slump, as he has been kept off the scoresheet in five straight league matches after recording two goals and a pair of assists in a 4-1 victory against Osasuna on April 3. Juanmi was a factor in Real Betis’ triumph over Valencia earlier this season, notching a goal and an assist.
Borja Iglesias ranks second on the club with nine league goals and netted Betis’ goal against Valencia in the Copa del Rey final. The 29-year-old forward also scored twice in the 4-1 triumph over the Bats in October. After going without a goal in 19 La Liga matches last season, defender Marc Bartra recorded his first of the 2021-22 campaign in Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Barcelona.
Why you should back Valencia
Goncalo Guedes and Carlos Soler are tied for first on the Bats – and ninth in La Liga – with 11 goals apiece. A 25-year-old winger from Portugal, Guedes also ranks first on Valencia in assists with six. The 25-year-old Soler, who has notched five assists, needs one goal to set a new career high after also registering 11 in 32 matches last season.
Valencia has played well defensively of late, allowing fewer than two goals in 10 of its last 12 matches across all competitions. It has posted six clean sheets during that stretch after registering only two over its previous 15 contests. The Bats hope to have Hugo Duro in the lineup after he missed Saturday’s 0-0 draw against Athletic Club, as the 22-year-old striker is third on the club with seven goals and scored in each of his previous two outings.
