Sixth-place Villarreal welcome fifth-place Real Betis to the Estadio de la Ceramic this Sunday in a clash where the hosts will want all three points to close the current four-point gap to the visitors.
Though Real Betis come into the clash off of a goalless draw with second-place Real Madrid, they look likely to find the back of the net against Villarreal. In fact, before the game against Real Madrid, Borja Iglesias scored from the penalty spot in Betis’ 3 - 2 win over Elche.
In 22 appearances this season, Iglesias has scored ten goals and provided a further three assists. This makes him the fourth-highest scorer in La Liga and Real Betis’ top scorer by a long way, with second-place Sergio Canales having six goals to his name. This goal return has left Iglesias with a goal every 161 minutes and a goal conversion rate of 29%.
It was Rodri who grabbed the only goal in Betis’ 1 - 0 win over Villarreal earlier in the season, but Iglesias is the more likely candidate for this weekend.
