Real Betis vs Leganes Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


The bottom two teams in the Spanish La Liga clash as Real Betis host Leganes at the Stadio Benito Villamarin. Both teams are still seeking their first win of the season but the hosts have the superior quality and are tipped to earn the victory at odds of 1.83.

Real Betis Balompie Form & Team News 


Real Betis are coming off a 5-2 defeat at champions Barcelona last time out in La Liga. Rubi’s men took the lead early in the first half through Nabil Fekir but conceded five goals before Loren Moron struck a consolation on 79 minutes. 

Los Verdiblancos are winless after two matches but often do their best work in front of their fans. They are valued at 1.83 by the bookies for a win on Saturday having gone unbeaten in 10 of their last 15 home matches in La Liga.

Loren Moron has hit the ground running for Betis this season with two goals in the opening two matches. He should retain his place in attack alongside Nabil Fekir, who was also on target last time out against Barcelona.

CD Leganes Form & Team News


Leganes were also beaten in their previous outing as they lost 1-0 at home to Atletico Madrid. They struggled to break down the stubborn Atletico defence and conceded the winner midway through the second half.

Los Pepineros have struggled at the start of the season having lost their opening two matches and are yet to score a goal. Their poor form means Mauricio Pellegrino’s men are priced at odds of 4.50 for a win on Saturday with a draw priced at 3.40.

Youssef En-Nesyri has struggled in attack this season and is still without a goal after two matches. He should start in attack on Saturday with support from Martin Braithwaite who has also failed to impress this term.

Real Betis vs Leganes Head to Head 


Real Betis have a 5-4 edge with one draw from 10 previous matches against Leganes. Los Verdiblancos often have the upper hand at home with four wins in their last five matches at the Stadio Benito Villamarin. They claimed a 1-0 victory in the corresponding fixture last season with Loren Moron getting the only goal.

Real Betis vs Leganes Match Up


Real Betis have looked solid in attack this season with their forward players all impressing. Nabil Fekir and Loren Moron have already combined for three goals in two matches and should comfortably get past the Leganes backline.

Leganes have had contrasting fortunes in attack as are still seeking their first goal of the campaign. Youssef En-Nesyri and Martin Braithwaite have both looked off colour and should struggle against Betis.
