In Italy last night, Bologna won the derby with Parma 4-1 to give us a positive start to the week.

We're looking to double down on that success with a trip to Spain tonight. In the second of today's two La Liga games, surprise leaders Betis (W2-D0-L1) travel to Getafe (W1-D1-L0), where the hosts could go top themselves with a win. Getafe won this fixture 1-0 last season and we fancy there could be a similar result this time around.

Getafe came home eighth last term. At the Coliseum Alfonso Perez, Jose Bordalas's men went W8-D6-L5, but the losses came against the teams that eventually finished 1st to 5th in the table. Against everyone else, the hosts were W8-D6-L0.

Betis finished 15th last season. New coach Manuel Pellegrini has started well, helping his side beat Alaves and Valladolid, before seeing them lose narrowly to Real Madrid. However, those wins came against teams that finished comfortably in the bottom half last season and Getafe should be a sterner test. Betis were W1-D7-L11 on their travels last season, only beating the team that finished second bottom. Early signs suggest they will improve this term, but for now more established Getafe are the bet and we'll back the hosts Draw No Bet in this one.
