Betis Seville vs Villarreal begins 07.04.2019 at 20:45 CET
This is not a bad season for Betis but in the end they could easily not reach their first objective and that is the Europa League. They did well in it although they were unexpectedly eliminated in the round of 32 and on top of it they reached the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey. Betis fans hoped that their team will play better in La Liga after elimination from those two competitions, however, Betis has three-game winless streak. They lost to Barcelona and only drew with Rayo Vallecano, while on Thursday another defeat, this time in San Sebastian 2-1. Betis has no major problems with injuries and we expect that Jese returns in the top of attack.
Probable lineups Betis Seville: Pau Lopez – Mandi, Bartra, Sidnei – Barragan, W. Carvalho, Guardado, Canales, Tello – Moron, Jese
What matches Villarreal played lately but its problem is that their finishes usually not end well for them. They had a great opportunity to make a key step in the survival battle since they had a lead of 2-0 over Celta in Vigo, however, they were defeated by 3-2. In the previous round they met Barcelona at home and were firstly trailing behind for two goal but then they scored four goals in a row for lead of 4-2, but in the very finish of match they received another two goals, so they won just one point. Due to suspensions A. Gonzales and Fornals cannot play, while some other players are questionable, so there will be changes in the team for sure.
Probable lineups Villarreal: Asenjo – Bonera, Funes Mori, V. Ruiz – Mario, Iborra, Cazorla, Morlanes, Pedraza – Samu, Bacca
Betis Sevilla vs Villarreal PICK
Betis must try to win as European positions are getting further and further away, and there is no time to compensate loss of points. On the other hand Villarreal struggles to survive and also needs points. They play very efficient matches lately and that is exactly what we forecast now.
