Real Betis v Malaga - Friday 19:45, Sky Sports 5
Both these sides have picked up five points from their five games so far, with Betis losing 1-0 at Sevilla on Tuesday night, while Malaga picked up their first win of the season as they beat Eibar 2-1 at home to ease some of the pressure on new manager Juande Ramos.
Betis have won only six of their 21 home games since the start of last season, with the draw the most common outcome in their games at the Estadio Benito Villamarín in that time. When hosting sides between 8th and 12th they’re W3-D1-L1, though that defeat came against Malaga themselves. These games were very low-scoring, with all five seeing fewer than two goals.
Indeed, since five of Malaga’s last six on the road and 12 of 21 away since the start of last season had fewer than two goals, Under 1.5 Goals could be worth a play in this one. As we’re expecting a low-scoring encounter, that certainly brings the draw in to play and that’s the outcome we like most here, with both these sides struggling for wins at the moment.
