Real Betis vs Elche
Real Betis to win and both teams to score NO- 11/8!
The opening weekend of the new La Liga season concludes at one of Spain’s most vibrant stadiums: Estadio Benito Villamarín.
Last season was a massive success for Real Betis, who finished fifth and beat Valencia on penalties in the Copa del Rey Final.
This is los Verdiblancos’ first silverware since last lifting the Copa 17 years ago.
Now, having just missed out, Manuel Pellegrini’s side will be doubling their efforts as they big for Champions League qualification.
So far, all of Béticos’ key players have remained at the club, while new signings Luiz Felipe and Luiz Henrique could debut in this one.
A home win does seem likely, but Elche will be hoping to rip up the script.
Los Franjiverdes only survived on the final day in 2021, actually ending up 13th and four points clear of danger last time round.
Francisco’s side claimed vital victories over Mallorca and Betis in April, and this was enough to see them beat the drop.
As they return to Sevilla, Real Betis should be too strong this time round.
