Betis lost the leadership of First division by falling 3-0 this Tuesday at the Alfonso Pérez Coliseum in Getafe
. The Verdiblancos were not leaders of the highest category since September 26, 2011, after winning the first four league games under the command of Pepe Me. Then, as now, they gave up the lead by losing to Getafe, who for the first time in history have won their first two home games and have not conceded a single goal in the three they have played.
In September 2011, a lone goal by Diego Castro ended the impeccable streak of the recently promoted Real Betis de Pepe Mel – four victories – and began the worst in the history of the Verdiblanco club, which ended up linking six consecutive defeats, a draw , and three other defeats to add only one point out of thirty that were about to cost the Madrid coach his place, saved on the bell by two goals from Rubés Castro (85 ‘and 89’) to Valencia, who had advanced in the 65 ‘with an own goal from Dorado. Betis’ next rival will be Valencia this Saturday, a clash in which any of them could gain access to the leadership again, which for a couple of hours snatched the che from the Betis yesterday and then passed into the hands of Getafe.
The azulones are a ‘black beast’ for the green and whites
This Tuesday in Getafe all the good feelings offered by Real Betis in this league start disappeared, with wins against Alavés (0-1), Valladolid (2-0) and a great first half against Real Madrid (2-1) , who came back in the second with the invaluable help of the VAR (2-3). At the Coliseum, Betis was overwhelmed (3-0) by Getafe, which is one of its new ‘black beasts’, as it has won 4 of the last 5 matches -the other was a draw- with a balance of 9 goals against favor of the azulones and only 2 for the béticos.
This Tuesday was Bordalás’s 175th game at the head of Getafe, with which he has an extraordinary balance of 75 wins, 50 draws and 50 defeats, with a campaign in Second and this is the fourth in First.
