TODAY'S BEST BET | FEBRUARY 24
We’re off to the Europa League for today’s best bet as Betis and Zenit St. Petersburg square off for a spot in the Round of 16 at the Estadio Benito Villmarin.
Betis picked up a 3-2 win over Zenit in Russia in the reverse fixture and we’re backing the Spanish outfit to double down and prevail at home to secure their ticket into the next round.
Betis have been in outstanding form for the bulk of the season and come into this encounter having won eight of their last nine matches in all competitions, including scoring three or more goals in five of their last seven victories.
The goals are flowing and at home, we expect Betis to put their foot down and put what is looking like a vulnerable Zenit team to the sword.
Zenit are winless in their last five matches in Europe and haven’t won a Europa League match on foreign soil since December 2017, highlighting their struggles on the road.
Additionally, Zenit have lost all five of their Europa League ties after going down in their opening leg at home, so that doesn’t bode well for a turnaround in Spain.
Zenit also finished their domestic season in Russia in December, so they are lacking in competitive matches heading into this second leg.
Betis are in fantastic form and after prevailing in Russia last week, they should be able to double down at home, come away with another victory and book their spot in the R16.
- Betis have won eight of their last nine games in all competitions
