The Real Betis returns to Europe through the front door and does so after recovering in an epic 2-0 in Balaídos against him Celtic with three goals from Borja Iglesias, Nabil Fekir and Víctor Ruiz and play more than twenty minutes with one less player due to the incredible expulsion of Cristian Tello (75 ‘), to which Gil Manzano, who did a horrendous refereeing, showed two yellow cards in a row in the middle of the card recital, as the Extremadura player took up to sixteen, including two reds, one to the Betic player and another to Coudet, a local coach, whom had expelled shortly before.
The Betis He came out more determined to the Balaídos lawn and found Kevin laps on his side several times, but the locals soon leveled the contest, with a good work of pressure in the wide area and the quality of his forwards. Blades (23 ’) gave the first warning, and was soon answered by Ruibal (24’) and Borja Iglesias (28 ’). The local goal came when Aspas transformed a rigorous penalty signaled by Gil Manzano, after a light touch with Bartra’s arm to Santi Mina (31 ‘), who had won the position but was hardly going to be able to finish off the center that came from the right side.
Villarreal won in Valdebebas from 18 ‘- and Valladolid against Atlético from 20! – and with those markers to Betis It was not worth more than the victory to achieve a place in the Europa League and not be relegated to the Conference. Pellegrini he moved the bench at half-time, when Tello and Álex Moreno entered by Ruibal and Miranda, refreshing his entire left wing. But the start of the second half coincided with the best minutes of the Celtic, who made it 2-0 thanks to a goal from Brais mendez (49 ‘) who seemed to leave the crash resolved.
It was not like that at all. Betic players put all the meat on the grill despite the heavy slab of 2-0 and got down to work in search of the comeback. Emerson (52 ’) soon forced a clear penalty from Nolito that Borja transformed into his eleventh goal of the course, then Nabil Fekir (68 ‘) masterfully transformed the squad from a foul on Lainez that seemed inside but Gil Manzano served outside the area. Just five minutes later Victor Ruiz scored the 2-3 after a corner thrown by Fekir and combed at the near post by Bartra. A minimal advantage that Poellegrini’s men held in an epic way –Bravo made a save to Carlos Domínguez in 87′- after the expulsion of Tello (75 ‘) and allows Eurobetis to return through the front door.
