Elche and Betis, opposite poles in the bench’s scoring contribution
On Sunday, the teams with the fewest and most goals of the First team will be measured
Elche-Betis Sunday (4:15 p.m.) will mean a duel between two teams that are polar opposites in one respect: the scoring contribution of the revulsive. The people of Elche are the group with the fewest goals from the First bench. A statistic that those of Manuel Pellegrini lead after 28 days.
15 of the 38 Betis chicharros have the signature of players who entered from the bank. Borja Iglesias registers five. Joaquín, Canales and Juanmi, two. And Tello, Loren, Juan Miranda and Tony Sanabria (the latter transferred to Turin in January), one.
For its part, only one of Elche’s 25 goals came from a shock. Its author, Guido Carrillo against Osasuna (2-2), in December of last year.
The difference in the bench’s scoring participation is reflected in the points of both teams. The so many of revulsivos have given 12 points to the Andalusians. For its part, the aforementioned target of Guido Carrillo allowed the people of Elche to add one.
Betis and Elche are separated by 20 units in the classification. The Heliopolitan team adds 45 points, with which it holds a place in the Europa League in sixth position. And the franjiverde team accumulates 25 points in their locker, only two points and one position above relegation.
Escribá uses the bench more than Almirón
During Jorge Almirón’s stage as a coach, Elche was one of the LaLiga Santander teams with the fewest changes made during matches. In fact, the Argentine only exhausted them in six of his 24 commitments.
With the arrival of Fran Escribá, the use of the bench has changed radically. The Valencian coach used all the swaps in five of the seven games in charge of the Elche team.
