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.
