A win on Sunday would make this Betis’ 400th win at home in the Primera Division. A moment the fans have been waiting for since their promotion, both teams will be forced to play in dire heat with temperatures likely to reach 40 degrees, having been assigned the midday kick-off slot. Health warnings have already been issued to fans who will come to watch the game.
As for Mallorca, all eyes will be on how the team plays considering the recent internal problems between Coach Michael Laudrup and Vice-President Lorenzo Serra Ferrer regarding the team’s summer transfer market campaign. Already suffering with injuries and with few alternatives, statistics favour the home team, who have won 12 out of the 19 games played between the two clubs on this ground.
Betis (4-2-3-1): Casto; Chico, Mario, Dorado, Nacho; Iriney, Be
