Francisco: Betis will climb the table

Almeria boss Francisco is confident that Real Betis will improve as the season goes on, but hopes they don’t revive on Sunday.

The promoted side travel to face the Verdiblancos on Saturday afternoon, and the Coach has claimed that his men mustn’t underestimate Juan Carlos Garrido’s boys.

“It’s clear that Betis will climb the table,” he told a Press conference. “They have very good players, so they won’t be near the bottom for long.

“Hopefully though, the reaction does not start against us.

“Virtually every game is like a final for us now – and the same can be said for Betis.

“It’s important to achieve a good result going into Christmas. If we win, Christmas dinner’s going to taste a lot better.”
