Levante UD (N) vs Real Betis judment
In fact, Rubi was “expelled” was predicted by the last 3 matches, Betis did not win. Broadly speaking, Betis only won 1/10 of the last match. That also explains why the blue-and-white striped team dropped to 14th place on the table with 34 points after 30 rounds.
But the situation of Espanyol is much worse. Currently, the visitors are standing in the table with 24 points after 30 rounds. One of the main reasons why Espanyol fell so freely is because the team still has not overcome the inherent weaknesses in the defense.
Espanyol is holding a sad record: being the second conceding team in La Liga 2019/20 with 49 goals (ranked behind each Mallorca with 50 goals)! Espanyol also lost a lot of pillars during the trip to Betis. Most notable is the absence of midfielder Bernardo Espinosa due to suspension. Espanyol also has an unbeaten away record. According to the statistics, this team has not won any match in the last 7 away games.
Remember, Betis won the last 6/10 matches at home. And when you only have to confront the opponent standing in the table, a Betis just replaced the general will be fully capable of winning all 3 points to … change luck.
Bestis won the Asian odds in the last 6/10 matches at home, Espanyol lost the Asian odds in 5/7 matches as the latest guests.
6 of the last 6 matches of Bestis and 10/14 matches of Espanyol have at least 1 goal scored in the first half.
3 goals or more: This match will have at least 3 goals or more. By coincidence happened earlier in the last 5/8 matches of Betis and 6/10 recent matches of Espanyol.
