BetisTOTwo reconverted players, Tello and Francis, ended the year with the injury due to Junior's injury
ANDBetis came to the league partwo reconverted players occupying both left and right lanes. On the one hand, aCristian Tello that he has had to delay his position to gain a foothold inthe schemes of Quique Setin, taking advantage of its enormous route, speed and versatility, as evidenced by the fact that it has acted for both bands so far this year. For the other,Francis Guerrero, one end of the right band that the centabro discovered as lateral inthe historic 'hand' of the 2017-18 to Sevillain the Snchez-Pizjun and that, since then, has been eating almost all the land to its main competitor, Barragn.
The presence of Tello and Francis is a circumstance that transluces the real problem:at least one lateral is missing in the template, whyJunior Firpo – now injured – does not have a natural substituteand on the rightthe performance of the aforementioned Barragn and FrancisIt was not being the expected until the canterano has been raising its benefits in the last matches.
Thus,Lorenzo Serra Ferrer already tried to reinforce the area last summerwithout setting any of the operations in motion, and we must not rule out that now hurry in the imminent winter market, althoughgoal number one is still the hiring of a striker.
The side has lost a lot of weight in Betis compared to last season. The data speaks for itself: in 17 league days,Antonio Barragn has added 280 minutes spread over five games, and in the last seven has only had presence in two of them, with just 93 minutes.
In 2017-18, however, only one encounter was missed in the same number of days, having played practically everything except the rest given by Setin against Girona, in day 13. Barragn, at least,is compensating with the 277 'of the Europa League and the 180' of the Cup.
