Betis v Barcelona tips – can Barcelona continue winning La Liga run?

It’s not been plain sailing for Barcelona during the 2020/21 season, with Ronald Koeman having a baptism of fire at the Nou Camp although the Dutchman has steadied the ship and it’s not out of the question that Barca can still challenge for La Liga title.

If the Catalan side are going to reel in Atletico Madrid at the top of the tree, then Barcelona need to keep winning and they’re currently on a run of five La Liga victories which means that they at least sit ahead of Real Madrid on goal difference.

Are Barcelona Bankers to Beat Betis?

Barcelona are predictably a short price favourite to claim three points away at the Estadio Benito Villamarín, with Koeman’s side trading at no bigger than 4/7 to claim their seventh away win of the campaign and they’ve been faring pretty well on the road this term.

Barca have collected six victories from their ten matches played on the road, scoring eighteen goals and conceding just seven. Most recently, they beat Athletic Bilbao thanks to goals from Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann, with the Frenchman showing flashes of brilliance for his team recently.

You have to go back to 5 December to find the last time that Koeman’s side were beaten in a Spanish league match, although Betis could be stubborn opposition and it will be interesting to see whether the home side can cause a few problems.

Betis Showing Signs of Improvement This Season

Real Betis finished the previous campaign in a lowly fifteenth place, although Los Verdiblancos have been much better this time around, with Manuel Pellegrini an experienced operator who has steered his team to seventh place and there have been nine victories recorded so far.

If you compare La Liga betting odds, then you might be able to find 24/5 about a home win in this Primera Liga clash, with Betis unbeaten in eight matches in all competitions, while you have to back to 30 November to find the last time that Pellegrini’s side were turned over at home.

Spanish midfielder Sergio Canales is the key man for Betis and he’s now hit double figures in terms of a goal tally and the majority of these goals have come in the past few weeks, with his performances earning the player a call-up to the international team.

What Are the Best Betting Markets and Tips for Betis v Barca?

Many punters will be looking to back Barcelona in their football accumulators and perhaps the visitors will prove too strong for Betis although there could be smarter bets to place and that includes the 7/4 about an away win with both teams finding the net.

We’re pretty confident that Betis will try and attack their Catalan opponents, especially as they will see this match as a free hit and the above price is far more attractive than simply backing the away win, with Koeman having to consider that the Champions League is starting back up again in a matter of days.

You can get 8/15 about the BTTS Yes option which indicates that the bookmakers are expecting the net to bulge at both ends, although there could be merit in getting odds-against about Over 3.5 Goals occurring throughout the ninety minutes.

The form of Griezmann means that we can also look at the prospect of the Frenchman finding the net, with Barcelona’s La Liga betting odds currently making appeal at 9/1 for those that think that Atletico Madrid can still be reeled in.

If we cast our mind back to Saturday 7 November 2020, we witnessed Barcelona enjoy a thrilling 5-2 victory over Real Betis, so it could be worth heading to the correct score betting market to find some tasty prices about some high-scoring encounters.
