Back Betis in the Basque Country

257

The Copa del Rey continues this evening and Real Betis can take advantage of a tired Real Sociedad tonight.

Betis to win @ 9/4

La Real battled to a 3-2 win over Espanyol on Monday but Athletic Bilbao showed us last week how significant fatigue prove for teams running out three days apart.

With the tie balanced at 0-0, another cagey affair is likely considering Betis won 1-0 when the duo clashed in Andalusia earlier this season and have kept clean sheets in their last three outings against Sociedad.

The Txuri-urdinak are a handy outfit but their numbers are limited, especially with Mikel Merino suspended, and the visitors can take advantage by making the quarter-finals tonight.

Villarreal to win @ 49/20

The same fate could befoul Espanyol who played so well to draw 2-2 last week at Villarreal.

Los Periquitos are unbeaten in four meetings between the pair, including a 3-1 home win in October that extended their run to five without defeat when the duo have met in Barcelona.

Villarreal have had a miserable season, sitting 19th in the table following Saturday’s home defeat to Getafe.

Tonight can provide some rare joy, with the Espanyol squad stretched to its limits following their exertions earlier in the week.
