Real Betis vs Espanyol Preview – Team News, Form, and Potential Lineups

This can be a very close and exciting game, so let's take a better look at both teams ahead of their duel, including our predicted Real Betis vs Espanyol lineups:

Real Betis

With two wins, two draws, and two losses in the last six games in the league, Real Betis has been a bit inconsistent lately, but more worrying than that is the fact that they lost two games in a row. Overall, they are still having a good season as they are currently in sixth place in the standings and fighting for the fourth place and a spot in Champions League.

Meanwhile, Youssouf Sabaly, Victor Ruiz, and German Pezzella are all questionable with injuries, while Nabil Fekir is out for the season. Also, Aitor Ruibal is suspended at this moment.

Real Betis Predicted Lineup:

Silva – Miranda, Felipe, Gonzalez, Guardadao – Carvalho, Rodriguez, Canales – Joaquin, Perez, Iglesias

Espanyol

With five losses in a row, Espanyol has struggled a lot lately and that's why they find themselves in a bad spot right now. The team from Barcelona is currently sitting in the relegation zone, with ten games left in the season. On the bright side, they are just two points behind the first team outside of the relegation zone, so they still have a chance to survive this season in top flight.

When it comes to team news, Adria Pedrosa and Brian Olivan are on Espanyol's injury list right now, while Aleix Vidal is suspended.

Espanyol Predicted Lineup:

Pacheco – Sanchez, Montes, Cabrera, Oscar Gil – Exposito, Bare, Sergi Darder – Puado, Joselu, Braithwaite

Player to Watch: Borja Iglesias

Since we expect Real Betis to win this match, we had to go with one of their players as our player to watch in this game and the choice was pretty obvious since Borja Iglesias has been the team's best player this season.

The experienced Spanish forward has twelve goals this season in La Liga, on top of which he also added a couple of assists. So, Espanyol will have to be wary of him in this duel.
