Betis and Granada prepare for an afternoon of accounts at the Benito Villamarín. Those of the Verdiblanco team sound like utopia: win and win in these two days to cling to the Champions League if Sevilla, their eternal rival, does not score any points. Those of the Nasrid team seem more viable: a victory gives them permanence and even defeat would sustain their immediate salvation if Mallorca does not knock Rayo Vallecano down. Betis looks askance at Wanda and Granada at Son Moix. On the pitch, the battle of intentions is guaranteed with two paths to paradise (follow the match live on As.com).
In Heliopolis there is one last letter to access the Champions and Pellegrini wants to play it. The victory at Mestalla kept the illusion going despite the fact that almost nothing depends on the Verdiblanco team. He will have the stands as his greatest ally to combat a fatigue that has grown since the triumphant Cup final. Karanka does not intend to be a guest in that local hope. He revolutionized Granada until he had his permanence within a breath. And he wants to catch her now. Without waiting for outside combinations to also push you to the target.
Pellegrini will go with everything. Juanmi and Borja Iglesias aim to return to the eleven while the problems multiply in their defense: Bartra is suspended and Pezzella, recently recovered. The Argentine would accompany Edgar if he is finally ready to play. As an emergency letter, Pellegrini took homegrown player Kike Hermoso. Fekir and Canales have the keys to make that football that in Mestalla appeared based on punch. But the team wants more. Without outstanding versions on the field, the group hopes that their unexpected dream is still present.
Karanka also has problems, especially on a left-back in which he lost Escudero through suspension. No natural piece at your disposal. Quini aspires to change lanes and variants appear on the right. He will rely on Luis Milla’s judgment to direct and on Puertas y Collado for creative help. Above, Luis Suárez can win the game against Jorge Molina, Nasrid hero and Verdiblanco idol. Granada wants to strengthen its dream. Betis, lengthen yours.
