Betis punishes Valencia with an exhibition of punch

Betis undressed the deficiencies of Valencia to provisionally assault the Champions zone and extend their moment of euphoria. The punch of Borja Iglesias and the Canales commanders were lethal against the Bordalás team, which has seven games without winning in this League on the verge of being measured against Villarreal, Atlético de Madrid and Real Sociedad. The light shines in Heliópolis with an immense Carvalho and a differential efficiency. Valencia increase their shadows in the first crisis under Bordalás.

Valencia did not wait for Betis in the first minutes. Those from Bordalás imposed intense pressure on the middle zone and neither Carvalho nor Guido seemed too comfortable. The first warning was Valencian. Jesús Vázquez, the surprise of the eleven che, ran into Claudio Bravo after an action that failed to stop the Verdiblanca defense. Guedes took the spaces, Hugo Duro was associated with precision and Betis could not find the controls. But at the stroke of a quarter of an hour Borja Iglesias found an open path to the Valencia area and Alderete stopped him. The VAR ruled a penalty and the ‘Panda’ did not err. There the story changed.

Pellegrini’s box was liked with the score in favor. Fekir entered the scene, Juanmi appeared between spaces and Canales took the handle of the game while William Carvalho dodged each set with Guillamón. Despite this, Valencia continued to be incisive in attack and a brilliant move by Guedes beating Guido’s back allowed Marcos André to have the 1-1 key. Montoya and Bravo prevented it.

The green and whites wanted more. Canales and Fekir met, Juanmi broke into space so that the counter took verticality and found a blessed Borja Iglesias: the ram cut outside the area and his shot found the collaboration of Foulquier to mislead Cillessen. The goal damaged a Valencia that was already suffering a lot in the spinal cord. And it was the Valencia goalkeeper who saved his team from greater injuries in that section of the match. Fekir had the 3-0, but between Cillessen and the post it was aborted.

The stopped ball put the Bordalás team in the appointment. Bravo already hesitated in a corner kick and in the next Gabriel Paulista won the game almost on the goal line to shorten the gap. Chilean error, who requested a lack of the central in the action. The character of Paulista gave life to Valencia, although the center-back left before the break after suffering dizziness minutes after a hit with Fekir.

The intensity marked the first bars the second time. The fouls multiplied by both sides and the fears grew. Valencia risked more, forced by the scoreboard, while Betis looked for spaces with Juanmi’s mobility. And a set piece changed the plan again. This time effective for Betis and punisher for Valencia. Fekir launched a corner into the center of the small area of ​​Cillessen and there Pezzella jumped, alone, without a mark, without a nearby enemy, to finish with his head at pleasure and put Heliopolis in jubilation.

The changes did not bring improvements in Valencia. Guedes launched battles on his own and nobody connected with Marcos André. Those from Bordalás needed to minimize damage, but another long ball revealed more deficiencies. Juanmi beat Diakhaby’s back and scored his fourth goal in this league, defining well against Cillessen. Betis was already a storm and Valencia a surrendered guest.

Little happened in the last quarter of an hour. The changes delivered breaks and avoided the odd fired nerves. Villamarín continues to give his best smile after winning his sixth game of the last eight and Valencia looks at the future with concern after confirming his enormous slump after a start that had awakened the illusion.
