Real Betis vs FerencvarosUEFA Europa League, KO: 17:45 Nov 25, 2021, Estadio Benito Villamarin
Real Betis will be aiming to stay on course for the knockout stage of the UEFA Europa League when they host Ferencvaros on Thursday. The visitors have been the weeping boys of the group and Betis will be targeting a comfortable victory.
Real Betis made a bright start to the Europa League, claiming two wins and a draw from their opening three matches. However, they were beaten in their previous fixture in the competition, losing 4-0 to German side Bayer Leverkusen.
That result means the Spaniards have now dropped to second in the group and will be looking to crank up the pressure on Leverkusen while also attempting to fend off Celtic. They have found things difficult lately with three defeats in their last four matches across all competitions.
Despite their recent struggles, Real Betis head into Thursday’s clash off the back of a 3-0 victory over Elche in La Liga last Sunday. Manuel Pellegrini’s men have also lost just once in their last seven home matches, claiming four wins in that run.
Ferencvaros are once again dominating in Hungary, where they have won their last two matches. They travel to Real Betis off the back of a 3-0 victory over Ferhervar in a domestic fixture last Sunday.
However, as is always the case, Ferencvaros are struggling to transmit their domestic dominance to Europe. They have lost all four of their matches in the Europa League and suffered a 3-2 victory to Celtic in their previous fixture.
Peter Stoger’s men also have one of the worst defences in the Group with 10 goals conceded in just four matches.
