La Liga / Real Betis vs Eibar – Betis and Eibar have the same number of points ahead of their head-to-heat that will take place in the 8th round of La Liga. They won by eight points and that is enough only for places in the bottom half of table, with which Betis cannot be satisfied. In the previous round they suffered a heavy defeat by Villarreal away, while Eibar won Celta. Match between the two teams played in Seville last year had ended as 1-1 draw.
Game Real Betis vs Eibar begins 04.10.2019 at 21:00 CET
Betis has already lost three matches where two were real disasters. Both were suffered away by stronger teams but still there is no excuse when you receive five goals. They can find a partial justification for 5-2 defeat at the Camp Nou, but they also lost to Villarreal 5-1in the previous round. In that way their four-game unbeaten streak had come to an end in a painful manner. They have won twice and these two home triumphs are their only made so far. After winning Levante manager Rubi made changes in the starting line-up, mostly in the defence which obviously didn't turn out well. That is why he could put Mandi at the stopper position instead of Feddal.
Probable lineups Real Betis: Robles – Emerson, Mandi, Bartra, A. Moreno – W. Carvalho, Canales, Joaquin, Pedraza – Iglesias, Moron
Eibar didn’t win in first five rounds and they won only two points in that period. They played two goalless draws, both away, while all three defeats were minimal. They won for the first time in the sixth round, when they defeated Sevilla, and the way how they did it was really special. Eibar was losing 2-0 and the result stayed unchanged till the middle of the second half when they scored three goals in 15-minute span and won. It was kind a back payment for defeat by Atletico when they dropped lead of 2-0 and lost. In the previous round Eibar won Celta 2-0, and the team did undergo changes. Now, there could be more changes that should refresh the team.
Probable lineups Eibar: Dmitrovic – Arbilla, Ramis, Oliveira, De Blasis – Diop, Exposito – Pedro Leon, Orellana, Inui – Quique
Betting Pick: Real Betis vs Eibar
Betis is shaken after defeat in the previous round but they are objectively much stronger than Eibar. The guests have won two matches in a row, however, it is not likely that will triumph for the third time. We forecast victory of the home team.
Pick: Betis wins
Odds: 2.05 at bet365 (down to 1.95 can be played)
