The poor form of the two teams is also noticeable among the best bookmakers, because before the game Valencia vs. Betis Sevilla odds are balanced. Unsurprisingly, there is no real favorite.
Valencia – Statistics & current form
If anything, Valencia is the favorite. Although the performance and results were manageable recently, the hosts are still unbeaten in Mestalla (7/6/0) – as only one of three teams in La Liga, the other two are the two title aspirants Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Harsh bankruptcies at the wrong time
The home game is just right for the bats, because the last three away games ended with three bitter bankruptcies, with Valencia falling apart on the defensive. In Getafe (0: 3), Atalanta (1: 4) and Real Sociedad (1: 4) there was hearty clapping.
The losses in Getafe and San Sebastian hurt twice, they came against direct league rivals in the fight for Europe. Valencia’s claim and goal are clear: reaching the Champions League. But with achievements and above all results like this one has to say goodbye to this goal, because the competition is big and scores.
Negative trend should be stopped against Betis
As a result of the two defeats, Valencia CF slipped to eighth place and is already five points behind the desired fourth place, also just behind Getafe and Real Sociedad. The Spanish newspaper “Marca” has already spoken of a crisis after the recent bankruptcies.
A home win against Betis Sevilla is therefore all the more important to stop the negative trend and keep up with the European places. It will be particularly important to stabilize the defensive, which was so vulnerable recently. But the team is on the gums, coach Albert Celades run out of players in this part of the team.
Valencia’s injury misery
The steady English weeks are noticeable in “Los Che” because in Ezequiel Garay (cruciate ligament rupture), Gabriel Paulista (ankle injury), José Gaya (muscle injury), Alessandro Florenzi (chickenpox) and Cristiano Piccini (knee cap fracture), five defense players are missing.
Francis Coquelin (thigh injury) and attacker Rodrigo (knee problems) are also currently out of action. Valencia’s military hospital is full of people. With this fuselage, Celades must still win against Betis, anything else would be too little.
It is therefore not surprising that Valencia vs. Betis Sevilla average the betting odds on home win at 2.20. The poor form of the team and the lack of injuries ensure such a lucrative betting rate.

Betis Sevilla – Statistics & current form
The shape of Betis Sevilla is not quite as bad as Valencia’s. However, the team from Andalusia is stagnating enormously – and is also chasing the demands.

Five games without a win for Betis
Three of the last four games ended in a draw, five games are already waiting for the Andalusians for a three. Against relegation candidate Mallorca, the team of coach Rubi turned a deficit into a lead on the last matchday, but even three goals were not enough, because keeper Robles missed and gave the islanders a point at 3: 3.
“It hurts because we should have got the three points,” said Robles after the draw against Mallorca, while looking ahead. “All boys want to change the situation. We are aware that we have to win in Valencia. ”
Betis caught in mediocrity
Gray mediocrity is everyday life, Betis had imagined it very differently. Why it is that Betis does not get off the mark, they puzzle with the Verdiblancos themselves.
One reason is the weakness away. In other countries, the green and whites act timidly, carefully, often without courage. This is reflected in the away balance sheet. The Rubi team only managed ten goals and only one win in the opponent’s place (1/6/5). So will it be the second away win at Valencia, which is still unbeaten at home?
