Primera Week 17 - 8 Jan 2017 (15.15 UK)
Real Betis 2 - 0 Leganes
Castro 51, Piccini 85
Estadio Benito Villamarin

Ruben Castro has called on Real Betis to continue their strong recent home form which has seen them pick up ten points in their last four games.

New manager Victor Sanchez del Amo has overseen home wins against Las Palmas, Athletic Bilbao and Leganes while also being involved in a thrilling six-goal draw with Celta Vigo, and also defeated Deportivo La Coruna in their Copa Del Rey fixture.

"At first it was difficult to get good results at home - we were not playing well and not getting good results, but with time and work we are pushing forward with results now,” explained the 35-year-old striker who opened the scoring on Sunday.

"It is easier to play here (at home) and for that reason we must always win.

"The first thing is to ensure we don’t get involved in looking below us, but also it is nice to be excited and to be able to dream.”
