Pellegrini’s puzzle for the visit to Valladolid
The entire squad, except for the two long-term injuries, has trained today to prepare for Sunday’s game
Lfirst team of Betis has exercised this morning behind closed doors at the facilities of the Sports City Luis del Sol to continue preparing the match that will be played next Sunday against the Valladolid, in the Jose Zorrilla, corresponding to day 34 of LaLiga Santander. A very important duel in their fight for Europe that nobody wants to miss.
All players on the squad, except for the two long-term injuries, Camarasa Y Dani Martin, have started the work session (including Montoya, who was absent yesterday Thursday), so Pellegrini you will have to put in order a real puzzle when choosing the eleven players to start. An alignment in which some important doubts appear.
The first, in the center of defense, where the Chilean coach will have to decide whether to continue giving his confidence to Mandi, after his most likely march to the Villarreal. It does not seem a priori that Pellegrini go to ‘touch’ anything in a line formed by the Franco-Algerian, Emerson, Victor Ruiz Y Miranda, with Bravo in goal, which offered a very good performance last week, in the visit to Valdebebas.
Ahead, the main question is whether the companion of Guido Rodriguez remains Saved, thus offering a more conservative profile of the team, or if the position in the double pivot is for Channels, with a more offensive eleven. Fekir, who returns after serving sanction, with Borja Iglesias pointed, they seem safe. And the rest of the positions are disputed mainly Ruibal, Tello, also back after overcoming a strong blow to the thigh, and Lainez.
Granada tightens the fight
The victory of grenade last night in the Camp Nou in front of Barcelona it has tightened the fight for European positions. The team of Diego Martinez, who will visit the Benito Villamarin the following day, he was five points behind Betis, so the verdiblancos cannot afford mistakes when visiting Valladolid to continue to maintain a margin of security points in search of its continental objective.
