Competition: Copa del Rey
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/6 @ Bet 365
Two sides who are looking to gain an early advantage in their Copa del Rey quarterfinal first leg, Espanyol will welcome Real Betis to the RCDE Stadium on Thursday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Espanyol may have managed to come past Villarreal in the last round of the Copa del Rey, they are enduring a very worrying run of form. In their 20 La Liga games this season, they have managed to record just seven wins, three draws and have suffered 10 defeats. Now sat way down in 13th position, Espanyol have now managed to record just three wins in their last 12 matches across all competitions. Although Thursday’s hosts have managed to find the net in 12 of their last 13 matches at the RCDE Stadium, Rubi’s side have now shipped nine goals in their last four matches.
As for the visitors, while Real Betis may have also managed to scrape past Real Sociedad in the last 32, they too have also struggled with their form in 2019. Although the White and Greens may sit seventh in the La Liga table, they have recorded just eight wins in their 20 league matches and have now recorded just one win in their last six matches across all competitions. Despite scoring five goals in their last two matches, Real Betis have also struggled with their defensive record. The La Liga outfit have conceded two goals in each of their last three outings and have recorded just one clean sheet since the start of December.
