Coming from a La Liga top six finish last season, Real Betis open a new campaign this coming Monday by welcoming Elche at Estadio Benito Villamarin.Elche won 0-1 the last time, they faced Real Betis, who won the match before that, when Real Betis claimed a 3-0 win.

Elche come visiting Real Betis, who finished last season in the La Liga as number 5 on 65 points. In contrast, the aforementioned visitors finished number 13 on 42 points.

We expect to see some solid dedication from both Real Betis and Elche as starting a season with a defeat is an undesirable outcome for anyone's morale.

Real Betis only average a modest 1.2 goals per game in their last ten matches in this tournament, in which they scored 12 goals. They also conceded five for an average of 0.5 per game. They kept their opponents from scoring six times.

Elche average one goals a game in their last ten outing, scoring a total of ten goals. They conceded an average of 1.3 per game, for a total of 13 goals, whilst keeping their opponents from scoring two times.

Real Betis vs Elche Prediction

In their last three matches, Real Betis won 0-3 and 2-0 against first Valencia then Granada, before drawing 0-0 against Real Madrid.Real Betis won half of their previous six matches on home soil in the La Liga, while also drawing zero. They suffered three defeats, while they scored nine and conceded seven goals.

Elche suffered a couple of disappointments in their last three matches as they were run over by Real Betis in a 0-2 defeat. Real Betis also proved too hard to handle as they won 1-0, before Elche were able to strike back in a 3-1 win against Real Betis.Elche, meanwhile, won twice, while they've drawn zero and lost four in their last six away in the La Liga.

A struggle seems inevitable at this stage for Elche, as the home side look to beat the drop zone and keep their La Liga status.

Bookmakers have Real Betis down as rather big favourites for the win, when Elche arrive at Estadio Benito Villamarin. While it might prove problematic, we still believe they will come through and deliver.
