Football prediction for Betis – Atl Madrid
Welcome to our football prediction site where once again we will discuss some of the most interesting games this week. Now we go with the La Liga clash between Real Betis and Atletico Madrid at the Estadio Benito Villamarin on Sunday
Real Betis are having one of their best seasons lately. Manuel Pellegrini’s team is currently third in the standings with 46 points and fighting hard for a return to the Champions League. Betis improved big deal after the arrival of Pellegrini and we can see this from their performances.
The Andalusians need to regroup now after an unpleasant defeat in their last game. Last weekend they faced Sevilla in the big local derby, but suffered a 1-2 defeat at the Sanchez Pizjuan. Sergio Canales scored Betis’ only goal in the game, but it was already the 94th minute when he did so.
We don’t expect any big changes from Pellegrini regarding his line-up for the game. Willian Jose and Joaquin started from the bench against Sevilla and most likely they will be substitutions on Sunday as well.
Atletico Madrid are not having their best season – that’s obvious. Los Colchoneros won the title in the previous campaign but now they are facing some major difficulties. Right now Atleti are 5th in the standings with 45 points – they need to improve in order to qualify for the Champions League again.
Lately they look better, though – they won three of their last four matches. In the previous round Diego Simeone’s team hosted Celta Vigo and achieved a comfortable 2-0 win. Surprisingly Renan Lodi scored both goals for Atleti.
It’s tough times for Luis Suarez right now. It seems the Uruguayan striker is not a first choice in the line-up at the moment. Let’s see if he will start on Sunday against Betis.
That’s what our football prediction site can offer you as a preview for the La Liga fixture between Real Betis and Atletico Madrid. It’s going to be a competitive game. We wish you good luck!
