Real Betis Vs Villarreal Betting Tips
When Real Betis and Villarreal face off in La Liga on Sunday, they’ll be looking to keep up their strong beginnings to the year. Currently separated by just one point, both sides seem evenly matched, and a draw seems to be the most likely result.
In their previous La Liga match, Real Betis suffered their first defeat of the year at the hands of league champions Real Madrid. They were behind early in the game, but Sergio Canales pulled one back in the middle of the first half before giving up the winning goal and losing 2-1.
Real Betis, who had won their first three games of the season, enjoyed a strong start to the campaign despite the loss. As Atletico Madrid and Sevilla struggle, Manuel Pellegrini’s team, who are presently fourth, will feel confident that they can legitimately contend for a top-four spot.

Unai Emery has gradually rebuilt his career with Villarreal after his underwhelming tenure at Arsenal. The Yellow Submarine is attempting to reestablish itself as a power in Spain after competing at the top level in Europe in recent years.
Villarreal has had a successful start to the year; they are undefeated thus far. They have three victories and a draw in their first four La Liga games, and they recently defeated Elche 4-0.
In the Europa League on Thursday, Villarreal triumphed, defeating Lech Poznan of Poland 4-3. After falling behind by one goal, they rallied thanks to goals from Samuel Chukwueze, Francis Coquelin, and Alex Baena, who also scored twice.

Real Betis vs Villarreal Team News
- Real Betis
Nabil Fekir, 29, will be absent from this game after being forced to leave Real Betis’ 2-1 loss to Real Madrid last weekend after just eleven minutes.
German Pezza is receiving treatment with Martin Montoya and Victor Camarasa, but he should return soon after missing the previous game because of a ban. Nabil Fekir is replaced by Joaquin in midfield, and Borja Iglesias, who has four goals through four league games, will start at the head of the line.
When Villarreal defeated Elche last weekend, they did it easily and without any injuries. Therefore, it wouldn’t be shocking if coach Emery started the same squad in that match.
However, Juan Foyth and Alberto Moreno were absent at that time owing to injuries, and both remain questionable.
For the visitors this season, José Morales and Gerard Moreno have already scored three goals, and they are eager to increase that total this weekend.
