Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Real Betis v Getafe match are shown here (inc. the best betting odds).
Real Betis will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 1-2 La Liga success vs Villarreal.
In that match, Real Betis had 45% possession and 15 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. For Real Betis, goals were scored by Nabil Fekir (45') and Emerson (52'). At the other end, Villarreal CF got 9 shots at goal with 5 on target. Gerard Moreno (65') was the scorer for Villarreal.
It has not been often in recent games that Real Betis haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Béticos have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 8 goals in the process. Such a trend might not follow through into this game, though.
Heading into this contest, Real Betis have left without a victory over Getafe in their last 5 league matches.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Real Sociedad in La Liga action, Getafe will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, Getafe managed 44% possession and 4 attempts on goal with 0 on target. Real Sociedad had 3 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Alexander Isak (30') was the scorer for Real Sociedad.
It has become apparent that Getafe have made hard work of scoring goals over their previous six games, netting the poor return of only 2. In those matches, Azulones have also seen the overall goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 11.
Their previous form shows that Getafe:
- have not been beaten by Real Betis in games played away from home for the previous 3 matches in the league.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 3 matches in the league.
Head to head

Team News: Real Betis
Marc Bartra (Heel pain), Víctor Camarasa (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Dani Martín (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be taking part for Real Betis boss Manuel Pellegrini.
Team News: Getafe
Owing to a completely injury-free group available to select from, Getafe boss José Bordalás has no fitness concerns to speak of before this match.
We’re inclined to think that Getafe will do well to be putting a goal past this Real Betis side who will likely do enough to score at the other end and edge ahead.
We’re therefore predicting a very even contest with a 1-0 victory for Real Betis at the end of this one.
A close call.
