Málaga vs Real Betis Betting Preview
Venue: La Rosaleda
Channel: Sky Sports
After an unexpected and solid victory last week at Real Sociedad’s stadium, Málaga are ready to take on Real Betis at home in what is considered one of the two heated rivalries Málaga has with teams from Seville. Real Betis, who started the season flying extremely high, have been in a constant downward spiral after losing to Espanyol at the end of October.
Every game from now on is essential to Málaga in order for them to survive, and picking up three points from this game is crucial for Míchel’s men to gain even more confidence for the fixtures ahead. The rivalry factor is always crucial in these kind of games, seeing as a certain will always perform better if it means sticking it to your nemesis. Real Betis have been involved in some heavy goals defeats, but they also managed to nab a victory against Real Madrid at the Bernabéu.
All in all, the weight of expectation from both sets of fans also lies on both sets of players, and along with an insanely good home support that pushes the blanquiazules forward, it’ll be nothing short of a thriller.
Diego Rolan and Fede Ricca are slowly regaining fitness, whilst Miguel Torres and Juankar Pérez are both still out, the latter recovering from a serious knee injury.
Antonio Sanabria and Joel Campbell are missing out for Betis due to injury and Andrés Guardado is suspended.
Potential Everton Starting XI: Roberto, Diego González, Paul Baysse, Luis Hernández, Chory Castro, Adrián González, Recio, Keko, Peñaranda, Borja Bastón.
Potential Swansea Starting XI: Adán, Durmisi, Mandi, Feddal, Barragán, Ruiz, García, Boudebouz, Tello, León, Joaquín.
