With the 2019-2020
soccer season of the Spanish La Liga, fans will enjoy seeing Lionel Messi and
Eden Hazard facing off in the title race. Although there’s still dominance at
the top, the other teams are shoulder-to-shoulder in the race to grab a place
eligible for European competition.
This new season may see
Real Betis staging a comeback, after ending last year on a disappointing 10th
place. Actions had been taken by the club, as the former Espanyol coach Rubi
had been brought to the team. Financial instability could have already been
solved, given that the management made drastic changes and recently signed an
important sponsorship contract with easyMarkets, a CySEC
and ASIC regulated broker.
New players brought to
replace key departures
The greatest summer
loss for Real Betis had been the departure of last season’s top scorer Giovani
Lo Celso, who joined Tottenham Hotspur on a season-long loan. Paul Lopez moved
to Roma and Junior Firpo joined Barcelona, but several important players had
also arrived at the team.
To replace Lo Celso,
Nabil Fekir, World Cup winner with France and former Lyon midfielder, had been
bought for £17.78 million. The move shows that Real Betis has great attacking
ambitions for the new season. Wanted by Liverpool a year ago, Fekir played
nearly 200 matches for Lyon and managed to score 69 goals.
