Real Betis look to bounce back against GetafeNovember 3, 2017
Friday evening’s La Liga fixture will see Real Betis looking to bounce back from their defeat last week to Espanyol when they host Getafe at the Villamarin.
Betis, who have been in relatively impressive form this season so far which included a victory against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu, were beaten by Quique Sanchez Flores’ side last weekend in a poor performance.
Quique Setien opted to rest Sergio Leon for the game and his side produced few chances on goal to force a result, failing to cancel out Gerard Moreno’s winner.
Getafe head to Andalusia on the back of a good win, beating Real Sociedad last weekend.
Sitting in 11th place, the newly promoted side have started well and are hoping to maintain their good run on the road this Friday.

Looking back on that defeat to Espanyol, Betis’ second in three games saw arguably their flattest performance of the season.
Setien’s side have been better at home with just one win away, coming against Zinedine Zidane’s side as aforementioned.
For the visitors, they fell behind to Mikel Oyarzabal’s opener last week, but goals from Angel and veteran striker Jorge Molina saw them secure three points.
LAST WEEKEND: Espanyol 1-0 Real Betis / Getafe 2-1 Real Sociedad
Betis are likely to line up with a similar 4-5-1 formation as last weekend in Catalonia, but they do have Riza Durmisi missing through injury.
Joel Campbell, who pulled up at the end of that defeat to Espanyol is a doubt, whilst Cristian Tello and Zou Feddal are also waiting on the all-clear from club doctors.
Getafe have Damian Suarez out through suspension, whilst Gaku Shibasaki is out long term.
Expected Starting Elevens:
Betis: Adan; Barragan, Mendi, Feddal, Tosca; Javi Garcia, Camarasa, Guardado; Joaquin, Sanabria, Leon
Getafe: Guaita; Molinero, Cala, Djene, Antunes; Arambarri, Markel, Amath, Fajr; Angel, Molina
