Real Betis and Elche kick off their 2022-23 campaigns with a very exciting match that will occur on Monday at Benito Villamarin stadium. These two teams come in different forms as Real Betis have only won one pre-season game from six, while Elche have won three of their six pre-season games as they recorded impressive wins over Getafe and Leganes.
Survival will once again be Elche’s sole target in this third season back in LaLiga. They escaped the drop on the final day last season and managed to secure top-flight status with four games to spare last year, so that’s progress of a kind. Any improvement on last season’s 13th place would be a cause for celebration, but another relegation scrap is more likely.
Francisco is a charismatic and experienced young manager who improved the team considerably after taking over in November 2021 and has been rewarded with a contract renewal for another year, which means that the organization trusts him. Owner Bragarnik has praised his attack-minded outlook but wouldn’t hesitate to act if the club look like they’re drifting towards relegation.
Now looking at what Real Betis could expect this season. Even though they lost out on a Champions league place in the final weeks, slipping away slightly when it had looked like it might just about be within reach, Betis’s fifth-place finish in La Liga last season represents a huge success. But we have to mention that even if they do improve, it’s difficult to see a space for them to step into and thus achieve a higher finish.
Unfortunately for them, the economics have made it hard to add to the squad, too. They still need to sell to meet salary limits. The pre-season has been difficult too. A friendly against Marseille in Chesterfield, England, ended in a mass brawl and a 1-1 draw. That makes it five summer games without a victory.
