Our football match prediction:
Following three consecutive defeats in La Liga, Real Betis will be looking to get back on course in the national championship when they welcome Eibar at their Estadio Benito Villamarin on Matchday 32. Los Beticos suffered a heavy 4-1 loss to Las Palmas at the weekend and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Sunday’s football game against Eibar. Experienced attacker Ruben Castro, who has netted ten goals this season, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts. Los Armeros, on the other hand, look unstoppable at the moment. Jose Luis Mendilibar’s men are on a three-game winning run in the league and they are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Andalusia. Eibar aim to book their place in the Europa League and we predict that the visitors will adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s match against Real Betis. Taking everything into account, there is a big value in betting on the in-form visitors.
