espanyol vs real betis

Real Betis face bottom side Espanyol at the Estadio Benito Villamarin on Thursday in a crucial La Liga clash. Real Betis sacked manager Rubi on Sunday, will we see a positive reaction from the players?

Real Betis Form


Real Betis’ form since the return to La Liga has not been what it should be. In their last match before the break they defeated Real Madrid 2-1 at home but lost 2-0 at Sevilla on their return to action.

Betis followed that up with a  2-2 draw at home to Granada and then lost 1-0 to Athletic Bilbao in their last outing at San Mames. It was a evenly contested game but Real Betis failed to take their opportunities in front of goal.

Manager Rubi was sacked after the defeat in Bilbao and replaced by interim boss Alexis Trujillo.

Real Betis News


Defensive midfielder Javi Garcia and versatile forward Joaquín are doubtful. Midfielder William Carvalho should be available.

Espanyol Form


Espanyol sit rock bottom of the La Liga table and are in desperate need of points if they are to survive. Since returning from the break they’ve defeated Deportivo Alaves 2-0 at home and drew 0-0 at Getafe.

After two positive results Espanyol fell right back into hold habits as they suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Levante. David Lopez scored in the 28th minute to level the scores at 1-1 but two goals by the visitors in the final 23 minutes ensured Espanyol left empty handed.

Espanyol News


Centre backs Leandro Cabrera and Bernardo Espinosa are both suspended for Espanyol. Right-back Sebastien Corchia remains injured and forward Raul de Tomas is doubtful.

Real Betis vs Espanyol Match Up


Real Betis should see a response after manager Rubi was sacked. They have a strong squad and their recent results were disappointing in that context.

Espanyol are missing two centre backs through suspension which will disrupt their defence. They beat Alaves 2-0 at home recently, it should be remembered that Alaves' goalkeeper was sent off in the 18th minute.
