Sanchez Betis problems deepen

Victor Sanchez del Amo’s problems at Real Betis deepened with a disappointing and flat 1-0 home defeat to Villarreal on Tuesday night.

Adrian’s strike just after the break was enough for the Yellow Submarine to move three points clear of Real Sociedad into 5th place but increase the pressure on the under fire Sanchez.

Los Verdiblancos had the majority of possession and more efforts both on and off target than the visitors, who were never truly troubled.

Chants of ‘Victor go now’ ran out around Estadio Benito Villamarin during the match, with the former Depor Coach notching up only five victories in 19 La Liga matches since replacing Gus Poyet in November.

Villarreal are now in fifth – seven points off Sevilla – while Betis stay 14th, nine points above the relegation zone and whilst they aren’t in serious danger of relegation, many fans are growing restless with the team’s performances.
