      Real Betis vs Sporting Gijon Predictions

      Betis have really seen their fortunes improve since the controversial decision to replace Pepe Mel with Juan Merino. They have lost only 1 of their last 5 league games which is impressive when you consider they’ve played Real Madrid, Villarreal and two other top half sides in that run. As a result they have stemmed what was a worrying slide towards the danger-zone and they are 5 points above the bottom 3.

      Sporting Gijon are 2 points above the drop-zone and were unbeaten in 4 matches prior to their 3-1 defeat to Barcelona in midweek. They could probably have done without that game coming so soon ahead of this relegation six-pointer. They had lost 8 successive away games prior to their 1-0 win at the Mestalla in their last road-trip. They’ve had 3 home games since then and failed to win any of them.

      Reason for Betting Tips

      Sporting Gijon are the more youthful, more enterprising side but Real Betis have plenty of experience and perhaps the know-how of how to cope with the pressure of a relegation battle and close games against rival clubs. Sporting were quite fortunate to win at the Mestalla, as Valencia spurned numerous glorious chances that could have inflicted on them a 9th successive away defeat. They may not be quite so fortunate here though and although Real Betis have the worst goalscoring record in the division, they could edge this game and you can back them to win 1-0 at 11/2.
