Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
There will be fireworks when Almeria and Real Betis face each other at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos in the Andalusian derby. Almeria are a real force to be reckoned with at home, with the team eyeing their seventh home win of the process, but Saturday’s game will be anything but a walk in the park for los Rojiblancos. There are no fresh injury worries in the home side, but Mali international El Bilal Toure could sneak into the starting XI.
Los Beticos, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-3 loss to Celta Vigo, with the team remaining just below the Conference League berth. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as both sides are eager to return to winning ways in La Liga. Betis defender Luis Felipe is banned for the match, as well as midfielder William Carvalho.
