Amid preparations for the start of the league season, Real Betis Balompié are in a race against time to record several of their most recent signings. Sunday marks the start of the new season with a clash against Villarreal and the team are in the final definition phase to ensure their reinforcements are properly qualified for the game.
Uncertainty about the situation of several players has recently hit Betis as some are expected not to conform to the set salary caps. The decision rests in the hands of strategist Manuel Pellegrini, who can determine the starting XI for the clash against Villarreal. As the newspaper AS points out, in this context the gaze is on Isco Alarcón, whose adjustment to the team is favored by the confidence of the coach, despite his scarce 45 minutes of competition and the apparent lack of rhythm he has shown in his game last Appearance against Real Sociedad.
Problems with the league and economically
So far, Betis have failed to land any of their signings this season, which poses a significant logistical challenge. Players like Ayoze, Marc Roca, Bellerín, Bartra and Chadi Riad are awaiting their official addition to the squad.
In addition to administrative problems, the team also faces injury hurdles. Fekir and Carvalho, two prominent names in the squad, are currently recovering and unavailable for the La Cerámica game. This situation leaves Pellegrini with a limited squad, including goalkeepers like Rui Silva and Claudio Bravo, and he will likely need to draw on young local players to complete the squad for the next game.
