Betis lined up with several changes last Thursday against Ludogorets, but still won 3:2 in the Europa League. They made it 2/2 in the group stage and are the main candidate to qualify in the knockout stage. In this match, history was written by 41-year-old Joaquin, who scored the 2nd goal and became the oldest player to score in the competition. In the championship, they won a very important 1:0 victory over Villarreal. They are excellent so far, only dropping points away to champions Real Madrid. Only absentees are Juanmi (4/2) and Sabaly (2/0). Girona beat Valladolid in the derby of the newcomers, which was their second win (both at home). Today, coach Michel has a lot of problems with absence and can’t count on David López (4/0), Stuani (3/1), Herrera (3/0), Terrats (3/0), Urena (2/0), Borja Garcia and Kebe. Betis has a full roster and is one of the teams that perform extremely well at the start of the season. Girona are improving over time, but have a lot of key absences in back. Expect Betis to prove their quality and continue the good form.
