Real Betis are back in action with another La Liga fixture this weekend as they take on Getafe at the Estadio Benito Villamarin on Sunday. Both teams have been inconsistent this season and will need to step up in this match.
Getafe are in 19th place in the La Liga standings at the moment and have endured a miserable season so far. The Madrid-based outfit has lost all its league games this season and has a point to prove in this game.
Real Betis, on the other hand, have recovered from a poor start to their campaign and are in eighth place in the league table. The Andalusian side eased past Osasuna last week and will want a similar result from this fixture.
Getafe have a good record against Real Betis and have won eight games out of 20 matches played between the two teams. Real Betis have managed six victories against Getafe and can trouble their opponents on Sunday.
The previous meeting between the two teams took place in February this year and ended in a 1-0 victory for Real Betis. Borja Iglesias scored the winner on the day and will want to replicate his heroics this weekend.
