Alaves will be looking for an improved result here following a 1-0 La Liga loss in their previous game against Athletic Bilbao.

Fewer than three goals per game were seen in 5 of the last 6 meetings where Alaves have been involved. Regarding the goal split from this period, opposition teams scored a total of 8 and Alaves got themselves 1. Such a trend might not follow through into this game, however.
Heading into this fixture, Alaves have not registered a win against Real Betis in their last 2 matches in the league.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Villarreal in La Liga competition, Real Betis and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that game, Real Betis had 42% possession and 10 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. Villarreal CF got 11 attempts at goal with 5 on target. Arnaut Danjuma (45', 69') was the scorer for Villarreal.
Illustrating their partiality to fruitful matches, the back of the net has been hit 23 times in the last 6 matches in which Real Betis have taken to the pitch, giving an average of 3.83 goals each fixture. Opposing teams have hit 9 of those goals.
Going into this encounter, Real Betis are undefeated by Alaves in away games against them for the last 4 league matches. A very decent away record against them.

Team News: Alaves
The Alaves manager Javier Calleja has zero fitness concerns at all before this game thanks to a completely healthy group ready to go.
Team News: Real Betis
Real Betis manager Manuel Pellegrini has some current player fitness concerns. Víctor Ruiz (Muscle Injury) and Youssouf Sabaly (Hamstring Injury) miss out here.
We think that Alaves could find themselves struggling to break down this Real Betis side who we think might be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
Our tip is therefore for a very competitive game with a 0-1 victory for Real Betis when the referee blows for full-time.
