Mel admits Betis are favourites

Real Betis boss Pepe Mel has conceded that his side are favourites when they face Jablonec in the Europa League.

The Verdiblancos have been drawn against the Czech side in the play-offs of the competition, and the Coach has admitted that his team should progress.

“We are favourites,” he told reporters. “We are happy with that tag and have an obligation to qualify.

“But we still have to prepare properly for the match.

“Just to be in Europe is special, but we know how important it is to overcome this encounter and make the group stage.”
