Their prior results show that Atlético Madrid:
- haven't been beaten in the league by Real Betis in their previous 2 games.
- have not been beaten in their last 13 home league matches. What a fortress they have created.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Real Sociedad in La Liga action, Real Betis will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, Real Betis managed 55% possession and 7 attempts at goal with 1 on target. Real Sociedad had 8 shots at goal with 5 on target. Portu (43'), Mikel Oyarzabal (74') and Adnan Januzaj (88') scored for Real Sociedad.
A tendency of at least one team drawing a blank in games featuring Real Betis has been fairly consistent of late. Looking at their last 6 meetings reveals that it’s happened 5 times. In those clashes, their opponents have managed a goal aggregate of 9 and Béticos have scored 7. We shall soon see if that trend can be continued on in this game.
Coming into this clash, Real Betis haven't won against Atlético Madrid when they've played them away from home in the last 7 league games. Not the best of away records.
Head to head
