Real Betis vs Athletic Bilbao

Both Real Betis and Athletic Bilbao are relatively safe from the relegation zone, although a few poor results could suck them right in.

Betis are 12th on 21 points, three off better than Bilbao. A three-goal win for Betis will see them surge five places up to seventh. A 2-0 win at Malaga last weekend snapped a run of seven games without a win.

Betis' home record is quite impressive. Their 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid a fortnight ago is the only time this campaign they have failed to score twice or more in front of their own fans.

Athletic are unbeaten in their last five league matches, their best run under their new manager, Jose Angel Ziganda.

However, four from that batch were draws.

Betis are kings in the air, having scored nine headed goals. No other team in the league has more than them.
