Betis, aiming the knockout stage vs Roma

Real Betis is now on their way to secure a knockout stage spot if they win against Roma in this match. Betis have the home advantage for this match as they welcome Roma for their match on October 14, 2022, at 12:45 AM (GMT+8). Another victory costs the hosts a chance to be at the playoffs, but the visitors can no longer afford to lose. These two teams are all set for their third meeting in their Europa League history. With this, both squad go all-out to prove that they are the better team in this match.

During the past two meetings of these two teams, it was Betis who took the victory, and are planning to do the same in this match. Additionally, what is more scary for the hosts is the fact that they are unbeaten in their last 10 matches in the tournament and two of which are at home. As for the visitors, they have lost their last three away games against any Spanish opponents. These three defeats are from three different teams, and they are hoping they would not repeat the same situation in this match. Although Roma already lost to their last two away games, they never lost three consecutive away games since 1993. With that, the visitors are hoping to turn things around against Betis.

Betis is currently at the fifth place in the La Liga table, and started really strong in their campaign. However, they ended up with a draw on their last match against Real Valladolid, and because of that, they have some catching up to do. This season, this squad have been nothing but impressive this season under Manuel Pellegrini. In fact, this squad is one of the only four squads who won each of their opening games. This season, they won all of their five home games across all competitions. Additionally, they also never lost while hosting an Italian opponent, so they stand a chance in this match.

Nabil Fekir will be out due to an issue in his hamstring he experienced during their win over Roma last week. Moreover, Juanmi also miss this match because of ankle problem while Martin Montoya and Loren Moron are both not included in the Europa League squad.

Just like their opponents, this squad have been fairly impressive in Serie A as they are currently at the sixth place of the standing. They were able to edge victory against Lecce in an important match. Coming from a win, this squad is hoping for the same result this time around. Although this squad won two consecutive games in Serie A, they still fail to impress in Europa League. Fortunately, this squad was able to show signs of improvement this season, and could bring victory against Betis.

This squad is experiencing a major blow because their striker Dybala sustained a “very bad” injury while scoring their penalty score. Zeki Celik, Rick Karsdorp, and Georgino Wijnaldum will all not play because of their injuries. Nicolo Zaniolo on the other hand is also out because of his suspension against the same opponent last week.
