The defeat by Ibiza in the last round of the Promotion Group, did a lot of damage since it meant that Gimnastic didn’t qualify for the play-off for promotion to Segunda. They were very active in the transfers market adding some good players like Buyla (Zaragoza), García (Ponferradina), Edgar (Sabadell), Ćirković (Admira), and Artiles (Las Palmas). Their performances in the premier against Sanluqueno away were satisfactory, with some great opportunities to grab the victory, while against Barcelona B they secure the victory in the last quarter of the match. The main reason for this bet is the staffing problems of Betis ahead of this duel. First of all, they can’t count on the coach Manuel Ruano who won’t be on the bench. Key defender Fran Callejon got injured in the last round and had to go outside in the 72nd minute, while Kike Hermoso, Juan Cruz, Mohe, and Juan Serrana are also injured. Gimnastic is one of the strongest teams in this group with only one loss in 13 matches last season, and expect to take advantage of these problems and secure their second win in the new season.
