The home side are in desperate need of three points, ahead of our Levante vs Real Betis preview and soccer odds, and against a leaky away defence they might just have the opportunity to kick on offensively once again.
Real Betis have struggled all season defensively, and a recent injury to key central defender Zouhair Feddal has left Marc Bartra with a lot of work to do at the heart of the visiting defence. Levante have been a little more solid at the back, as they possess the opposite issue. They can’t seem to score enough.
Our Levante vs Real Betis predictions back this to be a reasonably high-scoring game, given that Levante have no option but to start picking up points at home, making goals the way to go in our week’s La Liga tips.
Although the home side have been struggling in front of goal, playing against an outfit such as Betis should afford them the opportunities to allow the likes of Giampaolo Pazzini and Roger Marti the chance to boost their confidence with some chances to hit the back of the net.
Betis have scored in each of their last four away games in LaLiga, with Quique Setien’s side definitely getting everything right in terms of getting forward and creating chances. They are unbalanced in terms of keeping things reasonably tight at the back, however. As Levante have to push on to take three points on Monday evening, the away side should find a way in too.
William Hill offer the best odds on both teams hitting the back of the net at Estadio Ciutat de Valencia, with Levante having no excuse but to find some firepower. They are just two points clear of the relegation zone and the reality is that they are incredibly close to being dragged down into the mire of the bottom three. They won’t want to return to Segunda at the first time of asking.
Betis have scored two on the road versus Malaga and Celta Vigo of late, and even put five past Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan back at the turn of the year. On top of that, both Sevilla and Celta scored three times in those games too. The away side are incredibly porous.
Our Levante vs Real Betis bets are informed by the number of goals in league games involved Setien’s side this season. Most recently, they were defeated 5-3 by Real Madrid, but there have been eight goals scored in five of their LaLiga fixtures this campaign. Entertainment is always a factor when these visitors are in town.
10Bet offer the best odds on there being three goals or more in Valencia on Monday evening, which looks realistic given how porous Betis can be at the back. Levante’s goalscoring prowess has definitely been thrown into question over the last few months, but recent matches have suggested that they have turned a corner. Two goals against Real Madrid will have given their confidence a real boost.
Our Levante vs Real Betis betting tips suggest that this game will be very entertaining, with the hosts having plenty on the line in LaLiga heading into this one. While Setien’s men are angling for a Europa League finish, Las Granotas need to pick up points at home before they slip into the bottom three.
