Our football match prediction:
Despite being considered big underdogs in Sunday’s football game against Real Sociedad, Las Palmas did well to hold the Basque outfit to a 2-2 draw at Estadio Municipal de Anoeta. Los Amarillos, though, are still sitting in the relegation zone in the La Liga standings and they are likely to fight tooth and nail in Sunday’s clash against Real Betis. Las Palmas have been playing below expectations in the 2017/2018 La Liga campaign and summer signing Vitolo has yet to start paying off. Real Betis, on the other hand, shared the spoils with Girona at home in their last league fixture and they are on a four-game winless run in the national championship ahead of Matchday 14. Las Palmas want this win more than los Beticos and that is the main reason why we predict los Amarillos will return to winning ways in the Spanish top flight this weekend.
