Athletic is in the midst of a long-term catastrophe. The last time the ambitious team triumphed was in October. The Basques cannot duplicate their success of the previous eight matches in a row. Marcelino’s offensive is notably weak: four matches went without a goal in the past five rounds. In the fall, at least, it turned out to take draws, but in the past three bouts, the team from Bilbao has lost twice (although Sevilla with Real Madrid, the leaders of Examples) and drawn once with Getafe.
In the previous round, Betis finished sixth, with Manuel Pellegrini’s side scoring 61 points. In general, the Chilean expert performed admirably upon his return to Spain after working in England and China. It is critical that the Sevilla team keeps making improvements. She successfully cleared the Europa League group stage – by the way, there will be a conflict with Zenit in February. Simultaneously, after slipping at the outset, the “cucumbers” were able to reach December as one of the leaders of Examples. Betikos was victorious in all four extreme rounds. Barcelona and Real Sociedad, on the other hand, were the most ferocious opponents.
Betis has only won two games in the past 14 rounds.
