Paul Higham is backing Isco to have a say in the action when Real Betis host relegated Almeria in Sunday night's La Liga meeting...


Real Betis v Almeria
Sunday 12 May, 20:00 Kick-off
Live on La Liga TV

Real Betis reasonably safe in a Coneference League spot but a Europa League place is up for grabs as they host already relegated Almeria.

Given Almeria have won just twice all season the hosts are rightly big 1/31.33 favourites to win a ninth home game of the campaign.

Despite going down, Almeria have found their best form of the season recently, earning their two wins in a three-game unbeaten streak on the road, so although they've nothing to play for they're capable of making a game of this.

Leg 1: Both teams to score

It's 8/111.73 on both teams to score, which has landed in 21 of Almeria's 34 league games this season - that's second most in La Liga.

They've also conceded the second-most goals on the road in the division, so although Betis aren't big scorers at home they'll have a great chance to add to their tally here.

For their part, Betis are also top five in terms of both teams to score games this season so it looks a good place to start.

Leg 2: Isco 2+ shot on target

Isco was suspended last game, but we'll back him to be back with bang here and help pick off that super leaky Almeria defence.

He's had seven games with multiple shots on target this season and this couldn't be a better chance to add to that tally.

It's 15/82.88 for Betis' top man in this category to hit the target 2+ more times against relegated Almeria.

Leg 3: Anthony Lozano 1+ shot on target

Honduran forward Anthony Lozano has made a big impact on Almeria after scoring in the last three games when given a start.

We won't go so far as to back him to score again, but 11/102.11 for Lozano to have just 1+ shot on target is more than decent enough to make our Bet Builder.

Lozano's had five shots on target in his last three games so we'll back the man that's bang in form.
