It’s a bit of a stretch, but it looks like Real Betis coach Manuel Pellegrini will be making a goalkeeping change ahead of the Europa League.
Barcelona dominated Real Betis 5-0 in their 2023-24 La Liga 5R match at the Estadi Olympic Luis Companís in Barcelona, Spain on Sunday afternoon (July 17).
The match saw Barcelona dominate from the start, with goals from Felix (25th minute) and Lewandowski (32nd minute), and consecutive goals from Ferran Torres (17th minute), Hapinha (21st minute), and Joao Cancelo (36th minute).
While there were no crucial mistakes in the match, sub goalkeeper Huy Silva, who started the game, was forced off with a thigh injury at the start of the second half and conceded three goals in quick succession.
First-choice goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is reportedly still not at full fitness. Bravo also missed the game against his hometown team Barcelona with a calf injury.바카라사이트
“Claudio has just recovered from his injury and has only recently returned to training, so I doubt he will be available on Thursday (Europa League, vs. Rangers),” Pellegrini said.
Bravo has conceded five goals in his last four games. That’s the same number of goals the two candidates conceded in their single match against Barcelona.
Betis are in a ridiculous situation: their backup goalkeeper is out of form and their starter is injured. His woes will only deepen with a trip to Rangers on Nov. 22 to kick off the Europa League.
