Betis needs a 2nd round of Champions to go to Europe

first_imgProjection of 60 points at least to achieve sixth or seventh place in LaLiga. Betis will need them to have options to return to Europe. With 24 at the end of the first round, in the thirteenth place of the table and with many teams ahead, those of Rubi must complete a second part of the worthy Champions League course if they wish to reach the goal set at the beginning of the course and that by budget and social entity especially deserve greenish fans.Six points separate Betis from Getafe, which now occupies that seventh position. Seven of Valencia, which is sixth. At one point of the blues is a quite plugged Athletic and with 28, in ninth position, is Villarreal, habitual of the heights that he suffered last year to stay but that this campaign aims again to fight in the noblest part of the classification.Too many opponents. A further 36 points, a priori, must be added by the Verdiblancos in the next 19 league matches if they want to have European options. That means winning 11 or 12 of those matches. Many, if you consider that in the first round only half have been won, six. The immediate calendar will be basic to note if there are options to achieve the feat: Real Sociedad, Getafe, Eibar and Barcelona await. 60 points were precisely those achieved by Betis de Quique Setién two campaigns ago to achieve the last pass to the Europa League of the Verdiblancos. On day 19, the team that trained the Cantabrian coach had three more points, 27, than those who have joined Rubi so far.It is true that a run of six consecutive victories, the best in Betis First in its history, precipitated a second round with 33 points. Then the Verdiblanco team occupied precisely the seventh position, two points away from Sevilla, which was 29. This year the matter seems much more expensive. Last season, the team still trained by Setién was also better than in this one, with 26 points. He was also seventh then and two points behind Getafe, sixth as now, who was 28.
