Quique Setien: Real Betis can win at Barcelona and Villarreal

Real Betis Coach Quique Setien is confident his side can win away at Barcelona and Villarreal ‘to get out of trouble’.

Los Verdiblancos are languishing in the lower half of La Liga after being held 3-3 in a thrilling draw against Celta Vigo on Sunday, with massive away tests lying in wait.

“We can win at the Camp Nou and we can win at the Madrigal, and we'll get out of trouble,” Setien confidently told reporters.

“There is no reason to be pessimistic, is there? We know what we are capable of and we have full trust in our own ability.

“It was frustrating not to win because we were in control at two goals ahead and in control of the game.

“We wanted to go for another goal, we kept pushing and we lost our defensive position and they took advantage of that.

“We already know they are one of the most effective team in the league in terms of the opportunities they generate, they are in a good moment.

“We should have won the game but we were not smart enough, fortunately Canales scored the most difficult opportunity of the game.

“It was a great game between two teams who wanted to go for the victory and nothing else.”
