On Thursday, May 04, 2023, fans will witness a fierce battle between two giant soccer teams, Athletic Bilbao and Real Betis in week 33 of the 2022/2023 La Liga. The Athletic Bilbao vs Real Betis match can be watched via live streaming on ESPN+ at 16:00 ET.
Athletic Bilbao and Real Betis will battle it out for a place in Europe next season when they face off at San Mamés Barria on Thursday. Both teams have lofty ambitions, but have also been having form issues of late. This game will be a big test for both managers, Ernesto Valverde and Manuel Pellegrini, who will have to find a way to motivate their players.
Athletic Bilbao are in seventh place with 47 points, two points behind Real Betis who are in sixth. A win here would see them leapfrog their opponents and move closer to the Champions League places. However, they will need to improve their form at home, where they have won just twice in their last eight league outings. They also need to be more clinical in front of goal, as they only scored nine goals in those eight games.
Real Betis are also not in the best of shape, as they are winless in their last three league outings. They lost 4-0 to Barcelona in their last match, which shows how fragile their defense is. They are also struggling to find the net on the road, as they have scored just four goals in their last six league outings. They need to be more confident and aggressive if they want to score points here.
The head-to-head meeting between the two teams shows that Athletic Bilbao has a historical advantage over Real Betis. They have won 21 of the 55 official clashes between them, while Betis have only won 16 of them. Athletic have also dominated at home, with eight successive wins over Betis at San Mamés Barria. They are also sharper and more solid than Betis in head-to-head meetings, scoring more goals and conceding fewer.
However, Real Betis should not be underestimated, as they have some quality players who can make a difference. One of them is Borja Iglesias, who has scored 12 goals this season, including the game-opening six. He is one of the league’s top scorers in 2022/2023 and will be a major threat to the Athletic defense. Betis are also better away than Athletic at home this season, with six wins to five.
This game will be a fierce battle between two teams who are both looking to secure a European place next season. Both teams have their own strengths and weaknesses, but also have high motivation to win. This game is likely to be high-tempo and high-intensity, with lots of chances and goals created. Who will come out as the winner? Watch for yourself the match which will be streamed live on Thursday!
