Betis’ second defeat to Rooney’s Derby County

Betis third friendly in preseason and second defeat for Manuel Pellegrini’s men, which also add their second unmarked friendly. And that the men who wore blue in Pride Park They had their options to get ahead on the scoreboard, although they found the good performance of the local goalkeeper, Kelle roos. A Tello’s error in the exit of the ball in the final stretch, handing the ball to an opponent up front in a change of direction prohibited in football in those positions, he ended up sending it into the net Max bird. Victory of Derby County of Wayne Rooney, Championship team, in the first of the two friendlies that the Betis will play in England. Saturday awaits you Leeds de Bielsa, where they must change faces and show a greater success in front of goal.

Betis, with a team full of homegrown players, especially in the back, dominated the game in the first period. It was the first minutes of Andrew Saved this season (the last, according to his own words) and the Mexican showed that if he is not pressured he is capable of always find the best pass. With the mobility of Ruibal and Rober I always had a long search option. It was Ruibal who had the best chances from the Pellegrini set. Distant shots outside and without positioning the one that went to goal. Until halfway through the first act he stayed hand to hand (courtesy of Guarded and his good control) in front of Kelle Roos. He did not know how to define. He barely had time to choose where to put it before the quick exit of the goalkeeper. Betis could not go to rest with an advantage, although without too many headline theorists he showed that the coach’s idea is more than assimilated and that young people, in this year with few signings due to the economic situation, can help when Pellegrini calls them.

The coach changed the attack setup in the second period, leaving Loren on the bench. Fekir stood as the most advanced man, with his brother behind, while William Carvalho (in his first preseason minutes) and Channels they wore the handles of Betis. And in an arrival from the left, Nabil Fekir was left alone in front of the goalkeeper and his strong shot drew Roos with an exceptional hand. The Betis were still dominating and arriving with some ease. The set of Wayne Rooney he limited himself to playing direct in the first half. In the second he grabbed the ball and started present with some danger near Rui Silva, in his first start this preseason. And with the greater dominance of the Derby came another great opportunity for Fekir. New move to the left, so that the French combed the crossbar. Betis’ first goal was resisting.

Pellegrini took out the heavy artillery in attack with the entry of Borja Iglesias, Tello or Rodri. And Joel in goal, who had more work than Rui Silva in 65 minutes. Kazim-Richards stayed hand in hand with the goalkeeper and did not get over his quick departure. The match was heading to a goalless draw. And there appeared a unforgivable mistake by Cristian Tello. Horizontal ball at the peak of the Catalan winger’s own area and the theft by the English team ended with the so much of Bird from the front. Second consecutive stumble of a Betis that had better sensations. But send the result.
