Claudio Bravo might have worked in the backdrop for Real Betis the last time around but his performance was by no means a lowkey one. He pulled off a crucial cleansheet for the side on the day, one crucial to the side’s 2-0 win on the day.
Real Sociedad’s defence turned side’s white as a sheet last season, a side which sparsely conceded and the team has been resilient in defence once again. The side has let in a measly two goals in five encounters, showings which have included three cleansheets in that timeframe.
It’s a side which looks good for a cleansheet all the time, one the club can easily accumulate today as well. It sees us immense in the three defenders with all of Nacho Monreal, Robin Le Normand, Andoni Gorosabel and Artiz Elustondo being inducted in our team.
Portu has been the mainstay of Real Sociedad’s attack as has become customary of him across a string of seasons now. The club’s top scorer at the moment, he was always going to be inducted in our team for the day alongside Mikel Merino, the team’s leading assist provided with the two to his name.
While not many players have fancied taking of this Real Sociedad backline, Sergio Canales which have little such qualms. He’s pulled off the one goal and two assists, contributing to the most number of goals for the team to make him a must have pick.
William Carvalho has added an attacking penchant to his well rounded defensive skill set, one which has seen him score twice for the club already. Joaquin Rodriguez who has the one assist for the club will be wrapping up the triad from the side.
With Real Betis’ defensive setup not being one of the most astute, Mikel Oyarzabal can easily add to his two goals to see him bring down the curtains on our set of picks for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Two goals for him see Portu captain our team for the day while Elustondo is our vice-captain.
Bravo, Elustondo, Gorosabel, Monreal, Robin, William, Canales, Merino, Rodriguez, Portu, Mikel
