The Matchday 6 of the UEFA Europa League is set to be underway

Estadio Benito Villamarin will be the centre of attention when Real Betis and Rangers lock horns in the Europa League Group C. Following three consecutive wins, Real Betis suffered a 1-0 loss to Sparta Prague in the last group game, but they are still one foot in the group stages. Manuel Pellegrini’s troops are one point away from booking their place in the knockout stages.

Thursday could be a joyous night for Rangers or a huge disappointment as they could win their Europa League group after a win at Real Betis, while a defeat could see them slip into the Europa Conference League, A draw will not solve their issues if Praha win their match.

If Rangers and Sparta Prague win, then Philippe Clement’s team would end third in the section, ruing the one point they took from two matches against bottom-of-the-table Aris Limassol.

Kick-Off:

Thursday, 14th Dec 2023, 15-12-23, 01:30 PM (IST), 08:00 PM (GMT), 03:00 PM (EST)

Location: Benito Villamarin

Form

Real Betis Form (All Competitions): D-W-D-L-W

Rangers Form (All Competitions): W-W-W-D-D

Players to Watch

Willian Jose (Real Betis)

He is a physically robust forward, and even though he has not scored a lot of goals which strikers score quite often he is still a very important player for the home side and will be a very crucial player for them. He is very good at holding the ball which allows his teammates to make forward runs. He has played for many different clubs and with his vast experience he will be a key player for Betis in the upcoming fixture.

Danilo (Rangers)

Danilo is right-footed but also very decent with his left. You could describe Danilo as being relatively quick over the first 10 meters. His work rate is pretty high, He likes to make diagonal runs in order to make space for either himself or his teammates. Danilo is a very calm and composed finisher who has the ability in 1-vs-1 situations. His presence in the box can be a big threat to the opponent.

Match Facts

  • Real Betis Seville haven’t lost in their last 12 home matches.
  • Glasgow Rangers have lost none of their last 7 away matches.
  • Both teams haven’t won their last match in UEFA Europa League.

Injury and Team News

Hector Bellerin is back from the domestic ban, while all Guido Fernandez, William Carvalho, Claudio Bravo, Youssouf Sabaly, and Marc Bartra remain in the recovery room. Nabil Fekir is a major doubt and will be assessed before the kick-off.

The Gers, on the other hand, aim to retain second place in the standings and seeing that both sides should be happy with one point from the match, the share of the spoils is on the horizon. As for the away side, Connor Goldson is back from suspension, while former Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell has overcome his injury.

Match Prediction for Real Betis vs Rangers

Betis have ensured they have work to do after losing in the Czech capital in their last game, but their form at home has been strong. Manuel Pellegrini’s Real Betis were held to a 1-1 draw by title-challenging Real Madrid at the weekend at the Benito Villamarin. The Andalusians have suffered just one defeat in their last 17 matches across all competitions. Betis are the firm favourites for this one and it should be a low-scoring encounter on Thursday night.

Prediction: Real Betis 1-0 Rangers
