Villarreal vs Betis Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Following the horrendous start of the season, Villarreal will be looking for the first victory of the season at Estadio de la Ceramica as they host Betis. Anything other than a victory would be a negative result for the Yellow Submarine and it would significantly threaten Escriba’s seat.
Villarreal will play their first match of the season in front of their own fans. The part of the stadium is renewed and it’s clear that the expectations from the famous Yellow Submarine are huge. Zero points from the two relatively easy visits are the horrible start for the ambitions Villarreal who are expected to fight for UEFA Champions League this season along with Sevilla. They haven’t even scored so far despite several brilliant forwards such as Carlos Bacca and Bakambu. Villarreal have had the fewest shots on target per game in La Liga this season, with 1.
Real Betis have commenced their season satisfyingly – a defeat at Camp Nou was entirely anticipated, but the triumph over Celta Vigo in the previous round had a quite positive influence on the away side.
