Betis puts pressure on Real and Cádiz still believes in salvation

Mamardashvili prevented Rayo from winning at Mestalla

MADRID, May 12. (.) –

Real Betis signed a hard-fought victory (3-2) against Almería to provisionally place sixth and put pressure on Real Sociedad for a place in the next Europa League, while Cádiz clung to its chances of permanence with a 1-0 against Getafe on matchday 35 of LaLiga EA Sports.

The Betic team suffered against bottom and relegated team Almería, but Manuel Pellegrini’s men are very close to their fourth European qualification in a row. With four wins and a draw in the last five days, Betis even allows itself to dream of sixth place, which it claimed with 55 points compared to the 54 of a Real team that plays on Monday against FC Barcelona.

Despite the 2-0 lead at half an hour, with goals from Fornals and Isco, Almería went into the break with a different face thanks to Leo Baptistao’s 2-1 lead. Betis did not breathe easy either with another goal from Ayoze Pérez, because Luka Romero pulled one back almost immediately with about half an hour left in the game at the Benito Villamarín.

Almería made the locals suffer without the ball and showed pride in competing and pushing until the end, bordering on a tie. All in all, Betis achieved three points that make it a candidate for sixth place and with which it needs another three out of nine to repeat in Europe, although it seems that it is not satisfied with the Conference League.

Until recently, Valencia was competing for that seventh place, which once again gave ground in a bad game in front of its home crowd to almost completely say goodbye, with 48 points, to its European dream. Rubén Baraja’s men had a good staging, but from more to less, they were at the mercy of a Rayo that ran into Mamardashvili.

The local goalkeeper held his team back, although Yaremchuk inexplicably forgave Che’s goal. Álvaro forgave a one-on-one match and Rayo was left without a bigger prize to certify his permanence. With 35 points, Vallecas are close, as is RC Celta (34), although Cádiz is still alive (29).

The Andalusian team opened Sunday’s day with a forced victory against Getafe thanks to Alcaraz’s solitary goal from a penalty. The Madrid team reacted with Greenwood and almost tied with Latasa, with the Englishman once again the protagonist in the second half. However, with nothing at stake for the visitors, the demand to add to a Cádiz team that will seek a miracle was stronger.
