Match Preview

With Real Betis (W4, D4, L5) and Real Sociedad (W5, D4, L4) both going into round 14 within eight points of the top four and the relegation zone, their Sunday morning clash will be of great importance, particularly for the hosts who are searching for their first home win since September.
Betis have had an inconsistent beginning to the season at home, collecting a win over table leaders Sevilla yet managing to drop three points to Real Valladolid.
While managing to pick up a stunning 4-3 win against Barcelona, conceding eight goals in their last three matches – seven of them after half-time – is an issue that will need to be rectified, particularly given they have also led at half-time in just one league game at home this season (D2, L3).
Sociedad bring the best away record in La Liga (LL) into this clash (W4, D2, L1), though it must be noted that ten of their 13 points earned on the road have been against clubs currently situated in the bottom five places of the table. None of their last five away fixtures have resulted in draws (W3, D2).
In terms of the H2H, Sociedad are unbeaten in five overall against Betis (W3, D2) and have won here 3-2 on three occasions in their last nine LL visits – the other six all ended under 2.5 goals.
Players to watchJúnior Firpo (BET) has two goals and two assists in his last four league/UEFA starts. Mikel Oyarzabal(SOC), meanwhile, is in even better scoring form, with four goals in his last five appearances. He also has one goal and two assists from four starts against Betis.
Stat attack: Betis are equal-first for fewest yellow cards collected at home this season (nine).
All but three of Sociedad’s 13 goals have been scored after half-time.
Sociedad are second-last in the league for average attempts at goal per away game (8.3).
