BetisTOBefore the Real, he returned to the drawing with two power plants almost a year later
Hace almost a year, coinciding with the arrival at Betis de Bartra and with the clear objective of finally stopping the defensive bleeding that made the Verdiblancos one of the most scoring teams in LaLiga, QuiqueSetin modified his hitherto unalterable blackboard to introduce a drawing with three central and two lanesthat I ended up giving a sensational performance.
There was a series of positive results in the second round that catapult Betis to the continental posts, qualifying to play the Europa League five years after its previous presence in the competition. This season,the Santander technician has repeated system, especially after checking the great moment of form in which the Sidnei arrivedto the club in summer.
But the absence of the Brazilian defender due to injury and the ever decreasing offensive productionhave invited Setin to give another twist to the team. Last Thursday, against Real Sociedad in the first leg, Betis returned to the defense of four, with two central and two lateral.
A movement thatallows him to win a player in the midfield and that takes place just three days before receiving Real Madridin the Benito Villamarn. The Verdiblancos failed to win the game, but generated numerous opportunities to score and send in the totality of the shock.
The white set, in its last visit to Helipolis 11 months ago,is the only one who has managed to overcome with forceful Betis of the three central, imposed by 3-5. Tomorrow they may find a different opponent than they expected if Setin bets to maintain the defense of four, the drawing with which, by the way, the Bernabu conquer in 2017.
