MATCH REPORT | Bitter draw (1-1)

Guardado scored for the team

Europe will have to wait. Real Betis drew today at Eibar a game that, if won, would have meant the automatic qualification for continental competitions next season. The team began the game really well, took the lead early, and completed a good first half. However, the second period was completely different, the team did not play well and the home side tied the score up in the final minutes,

The match began in the best possible way, as the team took only three minutes to score. Lainez made a good personal play and assisted Guardado, whose shot took a slight deflection and went in. After the goal, the team continued playing fluidly and defending well. In fact, Tello and Iglesias had good chances to double the lead.

In the second half, the plot changed completely. Eibar pushed forward and Betis took a step back and started defending really close to the area. However, the home side did not enjoy clear chances. Until, in the 83rd minute, a good cross from Correa found Enrich in the far post. The striker headed the ball home.
