Next Sunday at 6:30pm GMT, on matchday 8 of the LaLiga, we will see Villarreal play Betis at the Estadio de la Ceramica.

Betis currently sit in seventh place as they travel to eleventh placed Villarreal.

Villarreal arrive at this meeting, having secured eight points so far this season

Unai Emery’s men were held to a disappointing draw against R Madrid in their last fixture, he will be keen to improve on that in this game.

Villarreal are quickly becoming the LaLiga’s draw specialists, having recorded five in their last six fixtures. They currently stand eleventh in the League, with eight points having won one game and drawn five matches.

Villarreal have won one game and drawn one game of their two League matches at home this season.

Winning this fixture will see Villarreal on 11 points.

A solid defensive team

Villarreal’s defence has been rock solid so far, only conceding three goals in their previous matches. The number of goals that a team scores can sometimes give a misleading impression of performance. Villarreal have found the net six times, but their performance at times this season has been average. This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Manu Trigueros (2), Arnaut Danjuma (2), and Alberto Moreno (1).

Unai Emery could be missing up to five of their players through injury or illness for the game on Sunday.

Real Betis’ LaLiga season, has so far seen them gain 12 points, going into this game

Betis will be hoping to increase their row, after victories over both Getafe and Osasuna.

Another match and another win for Betis, winning is becoming habitual for them and this is the mark of a team. With 12 points, they are established in seventh in the League having won three fixtures, drawn three meetings, and lost one game.

Playing away from home, Betis have won two matches and drawn one game.

Victory for Real Betis would take their points tally to 15 so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

Betis have a good scoring record this season, with 11 netted so far. This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Willian Jose (4), Juanmi (3), and Nabil Fekir (1). Betis have conceded seven goals.

Betis are likely to be missing four of their key players when they start Sunday’s game, due to injury and illness.

Villarreal v Real Betis – Head-to-Head.

Both clubs have previously played each other 34 times with the tally being 13 victories and nine draws for Villarreal. Also, the trend has been for the local team to struggle to get a win in all six games of their last matches. February 2021 was the most recent time these two clashed in this competition and The Green-and-Whites took all three points winning 1-2. As we can see both teams have scored in their last match and and it’s 59.17% that they both score again on Sunday.

For this game, Villarreal’s win probability is currently 50.25 percent.
