These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your betslip before confirming.

Real Betis to Win

The home team needs points to remain in the race for a spot in European competitions, while the guests are tucked away in the middle of the standings without a chance to move up. Furthermore, they’ve lost two Copa del Rey finals in a span of a month and are certainly demoralized by these losses. Although Bilbao has had more success in recent h2h matches, including a 4-0 in the first half of the season, we expect Betis to keep their good run going and win this game.

Total Goals Under 2.5

Betis has only gone over 2.5 total goals in two of their last eight games, Athletic Club has done the same, so under 2.5 total goals in their duel seems like a reasonable prediction. In addition to this, three of their last five head-to-head duels have also gone under 2.5 total goals. That being said, Real Betis averages 2.81 goals in their games, while Bilbao’s games average 2.4 goals per match.

Both Teams to Score – No

Since we expect a low-scoring match, we also don’t expect both teams to score. Our pick for failing to score is Bilbao, but betting on either team to fail to score is a safer option. However, if you want to chase better odds, you may try to combine our two predictions and bet on Betis to win to nil. In any case, one of the teams has failed to score in three of the last five h2h duels between these teams.

Real Betis vs Athletic Bilbao preview: Betis on course to European football

While Betis is on course to securing a spot in the Europa League, it could turn into a spot in the Champions League if the top Spanish clubs end up playing in the newly formed Super League. In any case, this match against Bilbao could end up being very importing for Betis, so let’s take a closer look at the teams.

Real Betis

The team from Seville has been great the entire season and they are 6th in La Liga at the moment, fighting for two European spots with Real Sociedad and Villarreal. The team has only lost once in the last eight games, so they are on a good run. However, their last three games have ended in draws, so they could use a win against Bilbao. Luckily, the team has a clean bill of health, with only Camarasa and Martin out for this match.

Athletic Bilbao

After losing the 2020 Copa del Rey final to fierce rivals Real Sociedad a few weeks ago, Athletic Club lost the 2021 Copa del Rey final to Barcelona over the weekend. It was a convincing win for Blaugrana that piled on the poor form of Bilbao. The team has only won once in the last eight games, but they’ve also lost just one game with six draws to go with it. Nolaskoain, Cappa, and Zarraga have been dealing with injuries and will likely miss the upcoming game.
