Pellegrini must pull players from the subsidiary to complete the list of 23 footballers that on the same Saturday afternoon they travel to the Silver Cup to measure themselves at Cadiz on Sunday in the match of the 25th day of the League that will be played from 4.15 pm and will be refereed by the Valencian Mateu Lahoz.
Due to the losses of Nabil Fekir, Borja Iglesias William Carvalho, Marc Bartra, Víctor Camarasa and Dani Martín, the Betic coach only has 19 players with a first-team record available, to which should be added Juan Miranda, who has a number of the subsidiary but for all purposes he is one of the first team. The midfielder Rodri also has that status, and also maintains the number of the subsidiary, with which he played as a starter last Saturday against Recreativo Granada, after not doing it on Friday against Getafe, despite being cited.
This weekend the situation is different, since it is Betis Deportivo who plays before the first team, this Saturday at 4:00 p.m. against Yeclano in the Luis del Sol sports city, a check for which Pellegrini has already advanced that Manuel Ruado will be able to count on Raúl García de Haro, the team’s top scorer, who has been training with the elders during the week but has not done so this Friday.
The fixed 21 and the possible ‘eleven’
Pellegrini has 21 players at the moment -19 from the first team, plus Miranda and Rodri-, so they will have to complete the call for Cádiz with two other players from the quarry, a third goalkeeper -which could be Dani Rebollo or Carlos Marín – and another player who will decide this Saturday and could be Raúl, since the regulations allow him to play two games in a row on different days.
The 21 fixed Pellegrini at the moment are: Joel Robles, Emerson, Mandi, Sidnei, Miranda, Guido Rodríguez, Guardado, Lainez, Loren, Aitor Ruibal -possible starting eleven-, Claudio Bravo, Martín Montoya, Víctor Ruiz, Álex Moreno, Paul Akouokou, Yassin Fekir, Rodri, Joaquín, Tello and Juanmi. To these 21, a third goalkeeper and another youth squad will be added to complete the list of 23.
