Real Betis seek top four finish

Real Betis is now looking to get their third straight wins in the league as they lock horns with Elche, who are still desperate for wins. Betis is coming from a 2-1 win against Real Valladolid, while Elche is from a 1-0 loss to Espanyol. When it comes to the league table, these two teams are very far from each other. Betis is at the fifth of the league table with 37 points, and are now getting closer with their top four finish hopes. As for Elche, they are at the most bottom part of the league table at the 20th, with just nine points. This meeting will be on February 25, 2023, at 4:00 AM (GMT+8), with Elche as hosts.

From the last 16 meetings held by these two teams, surprisingly, it was the hosts who have the advantage. They won seven matches, while the visitors only managed to claim five wins, and the remaining four matches ended in draw. Moreover, the hosts only managed to win once in their last nine matches, lost to six, and draw twice. However, they have the worst defense, as they already conceded 45 goals. As for the visitors, they are actually doing well on the road, winning four of their last five away games. They last experienced loss in January 21 when they succumbed to Espanyol in a 1-0 loss.

Betis is continuing their hunt for a spot in the top four of La Liga, which is why a win in this game is huge for them. They are also coming from a 2-1 win against Real Valladolid, a boost in their confidence for this match. Actually, a win in this match will give them their third straight victory in the league. Before their win against Valladolid, they also had a 3-2 win against Almeria, which snapped their losing streak. From their 22 games, they were able to get 37 points, but they are still in-need of four points to qualify in the Champions League. Playing on the road, as they were fine playing away from home, having an excellent form.

Due to a yellow card he sustained on their last time out, Guido Rodriguez will not participate in this match through suspension. Moreover, Borja Iglesias, Paul Akoukou, Juan Cruz, and Rodri, are all unavailable because of their injuries.


La Liga: Elche

Elche can gain confidence from the fact that they are doing well against Betis in their history. However, it is just unfortunate that they once again dropped their previous match, being defeated by Espanyol in a 1-0 loss. In fact, they are not doing well this season, as they only recorded one win in their 22 matches in the league. From those 22 matches in the league, they lost to 15, while drawing six matches. Due to this results, they are deeply rooted in the bottom of the league table. From a possible 66 points, they were only able to get nine points only. With that, they are 13 points away from the safe zone. With that, they are most likely be eliminated this season early.

Due to a red card, Elche will be without Jose Angel Carmona, but Diego Gonzalez will be back for their squad. Additionally, an injury would keep Milla, Collado, Donald, and Almano from playing in this game.
