As Las Palmas prepares to host Real Betis in an exciting La Liga clash on Thursday, fans and analysts are buzzing with predictions and expectations.

The match, set to take place at Estadio de Gran Canaria, is crucial for both teams, albeit for different reasons.

Team Form and Recent Performance

Las Palmas

Las Palmas has had a challenging season, especially in the latter half. Despite a strong start that saw them in eighth place after 24 matches, the team has struggled significantly, losing nine of their last 11 games and failing to score in seven of those.

Their last victory came against Valencia in February. Currently, they sit 14th in the league with 37 points, just enough to keep them above the relegation zone.

Real Betis

Real Betis, on the other hand, is riding high on confidence. They are in sixth place with 55 points, fighting to secure a spot in next season's Europa League.

Betis has been in fine form recently, going unbeaten in their last five matches with four wins and a draw.

Their recent 3-2 victory over Almeria showcased their attacking prowess, with goals from Pablo Fornals, Isco, and Ayoze Perez.

Key Team News

Real Betis Team News

Real Betis will miss German Pezzella, Marc Bartra, Chimy Avila, and Cedric Bakambu due to injuries. However, the return of teenage winger Assane Diao to the squad is a positive development.

Isco, in particular, will be a key player to watch as he aims to continue his fine form and add to his eight league goals this season.

Prediction
