Stadium: Mendizorrotza (Vitoria-Gasteiz)
Betis are stronger than Alaves. And if the Sevillians want to fight for European competitions, they have to win meetings like this even if they are away matches.
Alaves are the penultimate team in the Spanish championship, with three points in seven games. Alaves earned their only three points against reigning champions Atletico. Alaves have lost seven of their last eight games.
Could anything change in the game against Betis? In theory, yes. In practice, it seems to me that Alaves have already reconciled, if not with the relegation, then with the struggle for survival. And it will earn points with its peers.
Betis need points against clubs like Alaves. Last season they managed to reach the Europa League by beating clubs like Alaves. But this season, there are problems with beating the underdogs. There were draws against Mallorca, Cadiz, and Espanyol. Betis should be able to deal with all these teams without too many problems.
If Betis beat Alaves, they will catch up with Barcelona and move closer to the Eurocup zone. Again, if the Sevillians are determined to fight for it, they have to take three points in such encounters. And knowing the ambitions of the club, there is no doubt that the boys in the team are fully motivated.
