Real Betis Balompié is going head to head with Inter starting on 17 Dec 2022 at 17:00 UTC . The match is a part of the Club Friendly Games.
With the World Cup soon coming to its conclusion, Real Betis stepped up their preparations for La Liga’s next chapter by hosting Manchester United last Saturday, and Manuel Pellegrini’s side were 1-0 winners thanks to Nabil Fekir’s 49th-minute goal.
Though friendly results are best taken with a pinch of salt, such a victory provides Betis with a much-needed fillip, having lost three straight matches last month, when a weakened squad travelled to South America.
Successive defeats to Colo Colo saw them go down 5-0 and then 1-0 to the Chilean champions, after their brief visit to Argentina resulted in a 4-0 reverse to River Plate. Absent players notwithstanding, in the context of a 3-0 loss against Valencia when they were last in league action, turning over United therefore halts a worrying trend.
Los Verdiblancos entered the break sitting sixth in La Liga, and they have also made it through to the knockout phase of the Europa League, so the unflappable Pellegrini will hardly have been too concerned in any case.
