Real Betis just couldn’t hold on to the lead in an eventful clash against Espanyol on Sunday.
Los Beticos conceded the first goal of the game, managed to turn things around with two late first-half goals, got a man sent off 12 minutes from time, and finally conceded the equalizer in the seventh minute of the added time.
They have thus failed to clinch the third consecutive victory across competitions, following successes against Granada (a 1-2 win on the road in La Liga) and Celtic (a 4-3 victory in the UEFA Europa League).
As you can see by these results, Betis do have huge problems with the lack of meticulousness in their back line.
They are yet to keep a clean sheet this season. Five of their six outings (in all competitions) saw goals scored at both ends.
Their lone league defeat came at the hands of the current leaders Real Madrid (0-1).
The match against Osasuna should provide the visitors a nice chance to instantly return to winning ways, although the Pamplona outfit have lost just one of five matches this term.
That one loss came in Osasuna’s previous home fixture (1-4) against Valencia who found the net as many as four times at Estadio El Sadar.
Osasuna vs Real Betis Head-to-head
- Real Betis dominated this matchup in the most recent history.
- Los Beticos won six and drew one of the last seven encounters with Osasuna.
- Osasuna have failed to score in the last seven games against Betis.
Osasuna vs Real Betis Prediction
Betis have much more quality in their ranks and we see them as the favorites despite the bookmakers’ odds (2.25 odds offered for Osasuna’s win).
However, Betis’ horrible defense is the main reason for us to go with the Both Teams To Score at the odds of 1.90 as the main betting option here. Alternatively, we’ll take the sky-high 3.25 odds offered for Los Beticos to snatch the spoils at Estadio El Sadar.
