Real Sociedad 5/4 to beat Real Betis in Thursday’s Copa del Rey tie
Competition: Copa del Rey
Market: Real Sociedad win
Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to book their spot in the quarterfinals of this year’s Copa del Rey, Real Sociedad will welcome host a struggling Real Betis side on Thursday night.
Starting with the hosts, after picking up a clean sheet in their 0-0 draw with Real Betis in the first leg, Sociedad will see themselves in pole position to book their spot in the quarterfinals of this year’s Copa del Rey. Enjoying an impressive run of form entering the New Year, the White and Blues now sit just three points adrift of climbing into the European positions in La Liga. Now on a three-match unbeaten run, winning two of those outings, Sociedad have also improved their performances at the Estadio Municipal de Anoeta. Thursday’s hosts have lost just two of their last six matches on home soil and put three past Espanyol in their last home encounter.
As for the visitors, while Real Betis might have enjoyed an impressive start to the season both domestically and in Europe, the Green and Whites have struggled entering 2019. Freefalling out of the top-four in La Liga after a brief stay, they now sit just a single point above Thursday’s hosts. As for their recent run of form, Betis have now failed to win any of their last four matches across all competitions. Also now managing to record just one away win in their last four attempts, we’re backing another difficult night for Quique Setién’s men.
