The referee blew his whistle after reviewing the VAR and Scotland international Turnbull made it 3-2.

Manuel Pellegrini has made nine changes compared to the eleven that have beaten Barcelona in the league. Betis won the European League right to play on the final day with nothing at stake, finishing second in their group. However, the party had some nod to mystery. And the mystery in Pettis corresponds to Joaquin. Verdeblanco’s eternal captain started all group stage matches and returned to play a European match with Betis in the UK after 16 years. That was at Liverpool in 2005 and in the Champions League. Joaquín never tires of breaking records. Nor do you keep playing football like angels.

In the midfield position, veteran player Peteke demonstrated his immense talent and vision for the game. The virtues that made Betis return to the match after a rather poor stage were outstripped by the Celtic player who also played the match with his second unit. A goal from central Wales three minutes later from a poorly defended corner kick gave the historic Celtic an advantage, the first British team to win the European Cup in 1967. Shortly after the goal, Betis grew thanks to Joaquin’s football and his talent. Rotation players, some of the quality of items such as Willian Carvalho or Tello.

Betis was accumulating opportunities and did not paint by pure miracle. Lainez failed with everything in favor in the 16th minute; goalkeeper Payne stopped two dangerous pitches from Tello and Joaquin. Carvalho missed a shot from outside the box by inches and Paul still sent a missile to the Scottish goal team.

And the match entered into an exchange of blows in which Betis was damaged, showing an unknown weakness in the defense to receive the net 2-1 and then the penalty kick 3-2, in two unlucky operations Edgar after a short period of time. Good goal from Borja and a pass from Canales. Pettis insisted and insisted, but it was clearly not their day. Tello and Joaquín once again enjoyed clear chances, and still Juanmi, in a great moment, threw everything into the crossbar after a fresh pass from Joaquin, always the protagonist in the offensive attacks of Betis that his rival will know on Monday. The next round of the European League. It will be a match between Al Sharif, Zenit, Atalanta, Leipzig, Porto and Dortmund.
