THE PREDICTION

Betis have continued after the break in much the same way as beforehand as their performance levels remain wildly inconsistent and difficult to predict. Their defence remains leaky having conceded two goals in each of their two games since the restart which further explains why they have conceded the second most goals in the league this year. Athletic will relish playing against their defence and they have been able to rotate their players well so they should be fresh despite having two less days since their last game compared to Betis. Expect Athletic to edge a game which could contain goals at both ends of the pitch.
