When Real Betis returns from the international break with a trip to Celta Vigo on Sunday, they will be looking to build on their strong start to the La Liga season.
The Los Verdiblancos are third in Spain’s premier division after winning five of their first six league games, while the hosts are in thirteenth place following two consecutive losses.

Tips and Prediction
Celta Vigo, who placed 11th last year, set out to finish in the top half of Spain’s top division this year. They have had a mixed start, going from a loss and a draw in the first two rounds of games to back-to-back victories over Girona and Cadiz.
Eduardo Coudet’s team traveled to Atletico Madrid in an effort to win three points for the third time in a row. However, they were soundly defeated, losing 4-1 despite Gabri Veiga’s goal in the 71st minute.
Os Celestes traveled to Valencia in their penultimate game before the current international break hoping to go back to winning ways, but they came away with yet another crushing defeat as Samu Castillejo, Marcos Andre, and Andre Almeida all scored for a 3-0 home victory.
Coudet’s team has dropped to 13th place as a result of those two losses, but given how close the division is right now, they are still in striking distance of the top eight. On their next outing, they will try to record their third league victory of the season. Real Betis, who have won five of their first six league games, will present them with yet another difficult challenge as they travel.
After starting their top-four attempt with three straight victories, Manuel Pellegrini’s team lost to the defending champions Real Madrid by a score of 2-1, but they have recovered admirably both domestically and at the start of their Europa League campaign.
Los Verdiblancos returned to winning ways in La Liga with a 1-0 victory over Villarreal thanks to Rodri’s goal and kept up their perfect start in the Europa League with a hard-fought 3-2 victory away at Ludogorets Razgrad. This follows a 2-0 thrashing of HJK Helsinki in their first continental group-stage outing.
Before the break, Pellegrini’s team most recently defeated Girona at the Estadio Benito Villamarin. Borja Iglesias scored twice to help them come back from a 1-0 deficit to win all three points.
Real Betis will try to maintain their momentum with a sixth La Liga victory on Sunday after that result strengthened their position in the lead with only Real Madrid and Barcelona having more points than them so far.
Real Betis has demonstrated that they are one of the league’s most dangerous teams, even without players like Fekir and Juanmi, and we predict that they will continue their winning streak on Sunday.
