Rodriguez, the only soccer player in the Real
Betis who to date has played all 17 league games as a starter, is the tenth drop -in his case due to a sanction- that Manuel Pellegrini currently has in his ranks ahead of Monday’s clash against the Huesca in Alcoraz, penultimate for the Verdiblancos in the first round of the league tournament.
For the clash this coming Monday, Betis maintains the casualties of Joaquín, Guardado, Martín Montoya and Alex Moreno by Covid, as well as those of Dani Martín, Bartra, William Carvalho, Camarasa and Tello, who suffer different injuries. The nine footballers have already missed the last derby against Sevilla, as well as Wednesday’s cup match against UD Mutilvera.
Of the nine casualties, only Bartra and Tello could have some options of reaching the crash on Monday, as well as Álex Moreno, who would already comply with the quarantine period required by Covid, although before returning to training he has to give negative in two tests PCR.
The position of Guido Rodríguez will surely be occupied in Huesca by the Ivorian Paul Akouokou, who already made his debut as a starter this Wednesday with the Verdiblanca elastic in the cupbearer match against UD Mutilvera, escorted by a Sergio Canales who would play alongside him in the double pivot and who was the only player available to whom Pellegrini booked this Wednesday, as he has just come out of a major injury.
