CLICK HERE TO WATCH Live Real Betis' coach Manuel Pellegrini on March 17, 2022 Having narrowly missed out on a top-four finish last season, Real Betis could have started the following campaign still feeling slightly deflated. However, Manuel Pellegrini's team have been the exact opposite, getting the better of Elche and Mallorca to keep pace with some of the top teams in the division. The fixtures will naturally get tougher, with Real Madrid to come at the start of September, but Los Verdiblancos have achieved everything expected of them thus far. Their five goals have been shared by Borja Iglesias and Juanmi, and Pellegrini will hope that there is more to come from the remainder of the squad. Even by failing to win any of their remaining six fixtures in 2021-22, Osasuna's 10th-placed finish was still another year of consolidation in the top flight. A win over Sevilla on the opening day of this campaign has set the ball rolling for an even better return, with that success being followed by a 2-0 triumph over Cadiz. Although Osasuna have benefitted from receiving two successive home matches, they have taken full advantage and can continue to play without added pressure over the coming weeks. Jagoba Arrasate is now into his fifth campaign at Los Rojillos and keeping the club in contention for the European places will further enhance his own stock in his homeland.
