Betis will embark on a difficult challenge when they welcome Real Sociedad to their home court in a few days. The bottom occupants have been struggling to clinch major feats since curtain raiser but have repeatedly failed to show any sign of life along the course. Battling out with Txuri-urdin would seem like a suicide, especially when their past meeting will be jutted into the picture. The guests thumped their hosts in the last brawl they engaged in, scoring five goals against Betis’ one. However, four earlier fixtures rendered the teams quite level, with each of them bagging one win and two draws. But everything will boil down to their respective current forms: the Beticos earned only three points from their last five matches while Real Sociedad devoured on eight points from the same number of streaks.

 

Sports betting tip: Real Sociedad are en route to their 16th victory this season.

Espanyol vs. Almeria

Match Date: 27 April 2014 (local)

Match Venue: Cornellà – El Prat

 

Espanyol and Almeria were both winless in their last four top-flight matches, although the hosts managed to clinch one point from the draw with Rayo Vallecano. These streak might produce sorts of similarity between the squads, but the fact will remain that the Periquitos are 10 spots or 11 points clear of the Andalusians. Javier Aguirre’s lads are striving to clinch the last place in the Europa League qualifications but would need tremendous amounts of success for them to top out the two clubs (Villarreal and Valencia) above them. Almeria, meanwhile, are buried deep in the relegation zone which means that points in their next battles would be vital to pull them out of the table’s most dreaded region.

 

Online betting tip: Almeria will remain in the bottom two as they will be trounced by Espanyol.
