Real Betis vs Ludogorets Prediction & Match Preview
Real Betis vs Ludogorets
UEFA Europa League
Date: 15 September 2022, Thursday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin (Sevilla).
Real Betis will have a nice opportunity to maintain their fine spell of form and pick up the third consecutive win across competitions on Thursday night when they host Ludogorets in the second round of the UEFA Europa League group stage.
Los Beticos did not have any problems to ease past HJK seven days ago. Willian Jose bagged a goal in each half to set the final score at 0-2.
The Finnish side failed to register more than four attempts in total on the occasion. The fact that the Spaniards had as many as 20 at the opposite end says enough about Betis’ dominance in Helsinki.
Head coach Manuel Pellegrini can be thrilled with his team’s start to the New La Liga campaign as well.
Real Betis won four of the opening five matches at the beginning of the season and are now just three points shy of defending champions Real Madrid at the top of the standings and one point below Barcelona in second place.
Los Beticos showed strength once again on Sunday, beating Villarreal 1-0 in one of the most exciting games of the Matchday.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men conceded just three goals in five domestic league matches at the start of the season.
They will have a nice chance to make it zero goals conceded in two Europa League games after this Thursday’s home fixture against Ludogorets.
The Bulgarians made a big upset on the opening day by beating Roma 2-1 in front of the home crowd in Razgrad.
Jose Mourinho sent a very strong squad to the pitch last week in Bulgaria which makes Ludogorets’ success even greater. Can they repeat it in Spain?
Ludogorets do not have genuine competition in their domestic league. They won seven and drew one of the inaugural eight games of the season and sit at the very top of the standings with a 29-4 goal difference.
This fine start to the season will count for little when they come face to face with Real Betis, though. The difference in quality between the two sides is notable and we do not believe Los Beticos will allow an upset like Roma did against the Bulgarians. The home win by two or more goals difference is worth backing at the 1.95 odds.
