Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Espanyol and Villarreal, Real Betis take on Las Palmas at Estadio de Gran Canaria on Sunday evening. Los Beticos occupy 14th place in the La Liga standings and their top flight is not in danger ahead of Matchday 31. The Andalusians are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in Sunday’s football match against Las Palmas, but preventing los Amarillos from scoring in front of home fans is easier said than done. Las Palmas have turned their stadium into a real fortress and it has to be noted that they are after their ninth home win of the season. Quique Setien’s troops are likely to stick to their attacking style of play and we predict that the hosts will extend their winning run at home to three games. A man to watch in the home team will be Kevin-Prince Boateng, who scored the winner against Villarreal on day 28.
