One of the League’s best away records goes up against one of its worst home ones when Real Betis visit Real Zaragoza.
Only Barca have a better away record than Betis, who have won five out of eight on their travels. Meanwhile only Espanyol, Deportivo and Granada have worst home records than Zaragoza, who have lost three of their last five at La Romareda.
“Are we the surprise of the season? When there are six or seven games remaining we can say that,” remarked cautious Betis defender Javier Chica.
“If we knew how to combine home and away form, we would be talking frankly about good results,” sighed Blanquillos ‘keeper Roberto Jimenez. “The next step is to bring joy to our fans at the Romareda.”
