La Liga – Valencia-Real Betis

Valencia hosts Real Betis in a match from the 27th round of the Spanish La Liga.

Valencia continue to be 4th in La Liga with 50 points won so far. They have a record of 15 wins, 5 draws and 6 defeats. The Los Che are currently just one point behind the 3rd Real Madrid, so they have chances to improve their position in the standings.

In their last five matches Valencia won three times, made one draw and lost once. So far we can say that Valencia are successfully reaching their goal before the start of the season – finishing in Top 4 and qualifying once again for the Champions League. Right now the Los Che have 8 points advantage in front of the 5th Sevilla.

Real Betis on the other hand are 9th in La Liga with 37 points won so far. Betis have a record of 11 wins, 4 draws and 11 defeats since the beginning of the campaign. In their last five matches they won three times, made one draw and lost once – just like their next opponent Valencia.

In the previous round Real Betis welcomed Real Sociedad at home, but the game in Seville ended with a 0-0 draw.

Real Betis still have a chance to improve their position in the table. They are just one point behind the 7th Eibar, so three points against Valencia at the Mestalla could mean to climb with two positions in the La Liga standings. But it won’t be easy task.

For Valencia it’s a great thing to be in this position. The last season was one of the worst for the club in the recent years. Valencia needed to bounce back this season and they did it, mainly because of Marcelino’s great work. Let’s see how they are going to end the campaign.
