Our football match prediction:
Real Betis will be looking to build on a historical 1-0 win over Real Madrid at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu when they host Levante at their Estadio Benito Villamarin on Matchday 6. Los Beticos have been producing splendid performances at the start of the season and it is no surprise they are regarded as favourites to win Monday’s football match. The Andalusian side are eyeing their third straight win on home soil and we predict that Quique Setien’s men are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration. Los Levantinos did well to hold Real Madrid to a 1-1 draw in their last away game in La Liga, but it has to be noted that los Blancos were playing without several first-team regulars. Considering that Real Betis are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Levante, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
