Racing Santander hosts Real Betis

Racing Santander hosts Real Betis in a match from the 1/16-finals of the Spanish Copa Del Rey. Let’s examine this match in our predictions football 1×2 for today.

Racing Santander reached the 1/16-finals of the competition after a tough, but precious 1-0 win over UD Logrones in the previous round. The only goal in the match was scored in the last seconds, when Quique Rivero scored a penalty kick for Racing. It was really dissapointing for Logrones, but how they say – a match is being played until the last second.

Racing Santander are currently playing in Segunda B – the third tier of Spanish football. The club is currently leading the standings with 23 points from 10 matches played. The team’s record shows 7 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat since the beginning of the campaign. In their last five matches Racing won four times and suffered just one defeat – against Sporting Gijon II.

Real Betis are playing in La Liga, of course. The Andalusians are currently 13th in the league standings with 12 points won since the start of the season. Last season Betis reached Europa League and performed very impressive, but now they started the new season with some dissapointing performances in certain moments.

In their last game Real Betis suffered their third consecutive loss in the league. Eder Sarabia’s boys were beaten with 0-2 during the visit to Getafe at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez. If Betis continue to perform like this, it won’t be surprising if Sarabia gets sacked by the club’s boad.

These are our predictions football 1×2 for today for the Copa del Rey clash between Racing Santander and Real Betis. This is just the first leg of the tie, so don’t be surprised if you see Betis taking it slow. Let’s see.
