Betis VS Real Sociedad Predictions
Handicap Tip: Real Sociedad 0
Reason For Betis VS Real Sociedad Betting Tips
The bookies are having a hard time choosing a favourite for this match. Betis are reasonably solid at home but Real Sociedad are having much the better season and over 90 minutes, their extra quality is likely to shine through.
There can be little doubt that they are the stronger of the two sides and they have enjoyed plenty of success on their travels this season, which suggests they could come here and win. The Basque club have won an excellent 58% of their away league games, averaging 1.75 points per game on their travels. Only the top three can better that and La Real are really pushing Atletico Madrid hard for that all important 4th Champions League place.
If they are going to get it, they may need to win matches such as this one. One man in pretty good form is Carlos Vela. The former Arsenal man has scored in 3 of his last 5 appearances and bagged on Tuesday night against Eibar. With Willian Jose out, he could be the visitors’ main attacking weapon here and backing Carlos Vela to score anytime looks a decent punt.
Betis are a fairly average side and they’ve not really picked up any surprise wins against the top sides this season, which suggests they are unlikely to get the better of Real Sociedad. They’ve only won one match all season against a current top half team but do come into the game after a morale-boasting win in midweek at Malaga. Scoring goals has been a problem for them and they average just 1.08 goals per game at home and only 1.04 overall.
They’ve only won 31% of their home games this season but with 46% of their home games ending in draws, they clearly do find a way of grinding out results. That makes it more sensible to back Real Sociedad 0.0 Asian Handicap at 19/20 here rather than backing the visitors to win outright.
