Real Betis failed to perform against Getafe on Sunday afternoon, losing 2-0 to the Madrid based side.
Without sounding unfair to Getafe, Real Betis were deemed favourites for Sunday’s opening league game and that was for the simple reason of the depth in their squad.
Signings over the summer such as Takashi Inui and William Carvalho bolstered an already impressive squad, which earned qualification to the Europa League last term.
But their form this season has been poor and sees them sitting deep into the bottom half.
Getafe meanwhile sit mid-table and were hoping to improve their form too and they started well when Jorge Molina netted against his former club.
The veteran striker is still continuing to do it at the very top level in Spain and it was his strike on the hour mark which set the home side on their way to sealing all three points.
Dimitri Foulquier has been a revelation in recent weeks and it was he, who notched the home side’s second of the game.
A two minute spell was enough for Getafe then, who held on despite the likes of Sergio Canales and Cristian Tello being introduced by visiting boss Quique Setien.
Getafe remain 11th with the win, whilst Betis are in 13th – having won just three of their opening ten league games.
