Juan Cruz asks for passage

Betis returns to England with a win against Middlesbrough, Championship team (Second English) that last year was close to promotion to the Premier League. It will always be better to build on the wins and the improvement in the second half. Although As in Brunswick and against Monaco, the first part of the Verdiblancos can give rise to some concern. Only the lack of aim prevented Boro from putting a really frank score in their favor, up to five clear chances to score the English collected before the break. Those of Pellegrini they were showing themselves again between extremely weak lines.

The teacher Sánchez Araujo pontificates that “in football you do not have to elevate anything to definitive” and It will be necessary to add: and in preseason, much less. But from this Betis that is preparing the 2023-24 season, some things can already be glimpsed: the first, that Marc Roca plays it well and has a notable long shift, but he can’t be a substitute for Guido. If the Argentine leaves, it will be necessary to sign a more defensive pivot… Just like every day it seems more evident that Another left back is needed due to Abner’s inconsistency.

Paul returned to play in defense, a line that will have to be brought as soon as possible to the substitutes for Edgar and Víctor Ruiz. And another for Luiz Felipe, if he leaves. The Brazilian central defender was one of the many substituted for a new player to come out of the locker room in the second half Betis capable of raising the level, and with revenue: He had more of the ball and Ayoze and Juan Cruz struck. The Argentine continues to oppose a place in the next Verdiblanca squad. The best Betic occasion came out of his boots, until Montoya attended to Ayoze for 0-1 (63 ‘).
