The 2020-21 edition of La Liga is back in action this weekend as Villarreal take on Real Betis in an important match at the Estadio de la Ceramica on Sunday. Both teams have been impressive this season and will want to win this game.

Villarreal have been a robust outfit under Unai Emery but have registered four draws on the trot in recent weeks. The Yellow Submarines played out a 2-2 draw against Elche last weekend and will need to put in a better performance in this game.

Real Betis, on the other hand, are in seventh place in the La Liga standings and will want to fight for European qualification in the coming weeks. The Andalusians suffered a 3-2 defeat to Barcelona in their previous game and will want to return to winning ways in this fixture.
