Real Betis have surprised pundits this season, not only by out-performing local rivals Sevilla but manager Pepe Mel has the club on course for its best finish since fourth in La Liga in 2005. A subsequent slump in fortunes culminated in relegation two seasons ago but Betis bounced straight back and finished 13th on its return to the Primera Division last season.
On Monday night Betis host Athletic Club and if recent clashes with the Basque side are anything to go by, spectators are in for a treat. Watch more live football streams from this weekend’s La Liga games.
The sides last met in August and Betis came out best in an eight goal thriller in Bilbao. The game was tied 3-3 when Pozuelo and Jorge Molina popped up with a goal apiece in the last 10 minutes to announce Betis’ intentions in the first game of the season. Betis also had the upper hand in the previous campaign, winning at home 2-1 and by the odd goal again when defeating Monday's rivals 3-2 in Bilbao.
The table suggests Betis (4th) should have no trouble rolling Bilbao (15th) but in a game that promises plenty of goalmouth action, any result is possible.
