Villarreal welcomes Real Betis in a match for the 3rd round of the Spanish La Liga.
Villarreal: The home team is currently holding the 19th position in the league, with no points won yet. They have made a poor start to the soccer season, losing both their matches thanks to two very bad performances. Also, Villarreal has looked unusually weak in defence. In particular, they have allowed a lot of high-quality chances to their opponents, something they need to improve on drastically. They are nervous ahead of the first home fixture and will be focused on not conceding a goal in front of their supporters.
Real Betis: On the other side, the away team is currently holding the 12th position in the league, with 3 points won. They managed to gain points against Celta Vigo last time out. Also, that was an impressive performance in which they created more, and better, chances than their opponents. Still, they need a result in this match and they will keep things tight. Furthermore, they are a very organized team and should control the nervous but motivated hosts.
Conclusion: With the hosts yet to hit the net this season, and the solid visitors this should be a rigid match with maybe few goals. If Real Betis decides to go with one striker again we will not see much action in this match. Also, H2H matches between these two teams have not been goal-rich, with an average of just 1.4 goals per match from the last 5 games.
