Valencia vs Real Betis Predictions and Betting Tips
In a repeat of the 2022 Copa Del Rey final, Valencia and Real Betis renew acquaintances in the LaLiga Santander this Tuesday. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Real Betis, with the Spanish Cup final victory, stretched their unbeaten run in this fixture to four games in all competitions. What sort of response would we see from Valencia this time around ?
Highly-anticipated encounter on the cards
Jose Bordalas and his charges have had a terrible domestic campaign and as such, they're in danger of finishing in the bottom half for the second straight season. Although they're still in 10th place at the moment, they haven't won a league game since beating Elche in March- a run that has spanned six games. Five league wins in seventeen home games doesn't bode well for their chances of holding on to a place in the bottom half given that two of their final three games in the league would be played at the Mestalla. Nonetheless, they head into this game having managed to pick up a point away at Athletic Bilbao last weekend. Whether they can use this as a driving force to get off the mark for the first time since March is left to see.
At the detriment of Valencia, Juan Miranda struck the decisive penalty to secure his boyhood club's first major trophy since 2005 in what was a highly-entertaining Copa Del Rey final. This does guarantee a spot in the Europa league for Pellegrini and his troops but Real Betis would've surely taken a spot in the Champions League next season. Their top-four hopes were dealt a final blow against FC Barcelona over the weekend as Betis recorded their 11th league loss of the season- the joint highest amongst the top 10 sides. This loss would mean that Betis have failed to win any of their last four league matches and with Valencia hell-bent on revenging their Copa Del Rey final loss, this Tuesday's encounter would surely be a tricky one for the visitors.
