RB vs ATH Dream11: Two in-form teams will clash in this match-ups between two teams on the up as Real Betis host Athletic Bilbao at Benito Villamarín Stadium. The hosts are 12th heading into this game but could end the weekend in the top half, while the visitors are absolutely flying and find themselves at 5th on the points table.
Form – Who will win Today Match?
Betis have racked up 10 points from the last five league games, easily the best return for them in that many numbers of games. Rubi's men are far better than what the table suggest at this point, but the injuries never waved them off, and it took a toll on the roster. The absentee list has trimmed down in recent weeks and the effect could be seen on the results.
For Athletic Bilbao, everything is rise and shine. They are on a five-game unbeaten run, not losing since a 2-0 defeat at Wanda Metropolitano against Atletico Madrid, and winning four times in the subsequent five games. The Los Leones, as a result, have risen up to 5th on the points table.
Host: Real Betis
Visitors: Athletic Bilbao
Competition: La Liga
Match Venue: Benito Villamarín Stadium
Match Timing: Sunday, December 08, @06:30 PM
Nabil Fekir: Only if he was injury free! The former Liverpool target is easily the most gifted and best-known player on Real Betis' roster. He is too good, as simple as that. Can pick a pass or two, and is always a threat in goal. Goals: 04.
Loren Moron: Betis' highest goal-scorer this season. A danger all day long. Goals – 08, Assists 01.
Joaquin: He has scored a goal each in the last two games. His passing is right up there in high zones, while he always carries a threat in front of the goal. Goals- 03. Assists- 02.
Inaki Williams: With Raul Garcia suspended and Iker Muniain out injured, Inaki Williams will have more responsibility in this game than he usually carries. Goals: 03.
Kenan Kodro: The 26-year-old has made just two appearances this season and all off the bench, but this is his chance. Goal: 01.
