Europe will have to wait
Athletic Club’s victory at Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán prevents Betis from sealing their return to continental competitions on Monday
Europe will have to wait for the Betis. The results of the weekend left open a small possibility for the Verdiblancos, in case of winning comfortably at grenade next Monday and that a series of results were given in the matches of the teams that occupy the seventh, eighth and ninth places, they will mathematically seal their return to continental competitions. But ultimately it will not be possible.
The victory of Athletic club last night in front of Seville in the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán by 0-1, in the match that closed the day 34 in First division, places the team of Marcelino with 45 points, six from Betis, who has won the particular goal difference after winning 4-0 in San Mamés, in the first round, and draw goalless in the Benito Villamarin, a couple of weeks ago.
That is, even if the Pellegrini will win by two or more goals difference their match against the grenade, the Celtic lost in his visit to Villarreal and the Athletic do the same in his stadium in front of Osasuna, the green and white return to Europe It would not be mathematical since it would distance the nine points to the lions with nine to be played and the position lost in the event of a tie at the end.
In Eibar at the earliest
Thus, at the earliest, the Betis You will be able to certify your classification for continental competitions on matchday 36, in which you visit the Eibar on Ipurua. Unless the results of the next date are unfavorable, starting with that of his match against the grenade, and have to keep fighting to seal the first of his goals in the last two days of the competition.
The Verdiblancos, in any case, will have to maintain their competitive level in the four games that remain for the season to end because beyond being able to soon seal their return to Europe, a position is at stake in the UEFA Europa League, avoiding Conference league, and the right to higher income for the distribution of the centralized sale of television rights based on the final position in the table.
