The Real Betis will try to achieve this Sunday the first victory in its history in the Wanda Metropolitano before him Atlético de Madrid, a rival who has not beaten at home since December 18, 2011, when he did it 0-2 (Pozuelo and Roque Santa Cruz) at Vicente Calderón at the orders of Pepe Mel. That Betic triumph precipitated the dismissal of Goyo Manzano and the arrival on the bench of Athletic from Diego Simeone, which the Verdiblancos, since then, have only managed to win once (in the Villamarin, in February 2019, with a goal from Channels penalty and Setien on the bench), adding 5 draws and 13 defeats.
Winning one of the top four of the last two seasons –Athletic, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla FC– It is one of the challenges that the Real Betis since the arrival of Manuel Pellegrini, with which he has just added the highest number of points in his history after the first eleven days of League (21) and equals the second best start ever, only surpassed by that of the 1934/35 campaign, when he was proclaimed champion of League (9G 1E 1P).
At the command of the Chilean technician the Real Betis To date, they have three draws and six defeats against these four teams, with 8 goals in favor and 17 against. With the FC Barcelona has lost twice, with him Real Madrid adds two defeats and a draw, and with him Athletic and the Sevilla FC, a loss and a draw. In a week Betis will have a double chance to break this dynamic, because on Sunday they are measured at Athletic and the next is measured at Sevilla FC in the Seville derby that will take place in the Benito Villamarin, although the leadership of Group G of the League will be played before Europe on Germany before him Bayer Leverkusen. A week with three very demanding games that will face the Real Betis, which comes from winning the last three of League to Alavés, Rayo and Valencia and tie with him Leverkusen in Europe.
