Had it not been for Claudio Bravo, things could have easily gone further sour for Real Betis the last time around. The club-s shot stopper was the only player interested in putting on a fight on the day, a name who managed to add some wind to his side’s sails with a slew of saves.
Atletico Madrid might have been thumped for four in the Champions League but this defensive setup has been impeccable in La Liga. The side has conceded a meagre one goal in four clashes, encounters which have seen the club emerge with three cleansheets.
And with Real Betis failing to score the last time around, this can easily end up into another cleansheet for the hosts. It sees us rope in all of Renan Lodi, Kieran Tripper and Stefan Savic from the side.
Hit for three goals in all of their last three defeats, Real Betis’ defence has completely fallen apart. The side’s backline makes for a dreary unit, a team devoid of any kind of gameplan to paper over the ever widening cracks.
And the side will be left picking up the pieces today as well with Angel Correa who already has the two assists set to add to his tally. Joining up with him is Koke while the opposition see us rope in a trio.
With Atletico Madrid down in the dumps defensively, Real Betis know they stand a chance of scoring atleast once. In one and two assist man Sergio Canales, they have a player who can string together a hoard of alluring attacking plays to make him the first part of the triad.
William Carvalho has been absolutely gripping for the side, scoring twice while holding fort in defence at the same time. Completing the setup is Joaquin Rodriguez courtesy of his one assist for the side.
Striker Luis Suarez is the home side’s leading scorer to make him a must have pick with Joao Felix slotting in next to him.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Suarez’s three strikes for Atletico Madrid see him captain our team while Lodi is the vice-captain.
Bravo, Lodi, Savic, Trippier, Koke, Correa, Canales, Carvalho, Rodriguez, Luis, Felix
