Betis should have little difficulty seeing off a Celta Vigo side who struggle on the road.
Betis v Celta Vigo – Sunday 11:00, SS5
Betis are comfortably odds-on to beat a Celta Vigo team with an injury list longer than this author’s arm.
Betis won midweek in the cup to make it two from two at home for new boss Victor Sanchez. They’ll be confident they can make it three in three here given Celta’s sole away success this season came at Espanyol. The visitors have conceded nine in their last three and could well be without key midfielder Fabian Orellana here – their regular keeper Sergio Alvarez is definitely out as is defender Hugo Mallao. Worryingly for Vigo, they’ve already failed to score at Eibar, Villarreal and Osasuna on the road this term.
Celta have dropped from their lofty sixth-place finish last season to mid-table mediocrity and that should suit Betis here. They’ve won four of their last five hosting middle-third La Liga teams and all five games have had Under 2.5 Goals as all of the victories came without conceding. A fifth win-to-nil in six against similar opposition is too big to ignore at a juicy 4.20 with various books.
