Real Betis kick off their latest European adventure but how far will this one take them?

Los Verdiblancos are one of Spain’s most well-supported clubs but have only ever played 66 European matches.

Their best runs both came in the Cup Winners’ Cup, reaching quarter-finals in 1978 and 1998, losing to Dynamo Moskva and then Chelsea.

In more recent times, Betis qualified for the Champions League group phase in 2005 and the Europa League equivalent in 2013 and 2019.

Two years ago, they topped their group, above Olympiacos, A.C. Milan and Dudelange, but then crashed out to Rennes in the round of 32.

Will they go any further this time?

Béticos finished sixth last season, their joint-best finish since 2005, but made an underwhelming start to this La Liga campaign.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side had just two points after their three games in August, drawing with Mallorca and Cádiz before losing to Real Madrid.

But, on Monday night, they did claim their first victory, beating Granada 2-1 at Nuevo Estadio de Los Cármenes.

Nabil Fekir opening the scoring before Sergio Canales snatched an 89th minute winner in the Andalucían derby.

That lifts them up to ninth in the table but, possibly more importantly, will lift spirits in the camp.

Europa League Group G appears to be very competitive with German side Bayer Leverkusen and Hungarian champions Ferencváros completing the quartet.

That makes every point vital so will Real Betis start with a home win at Estadio Benito Villamarín?

Will Celtic win in Spain?

As for Celtic, unlikely their fellow green-and-white wearing hosts, they’ve already played six European matches just to get here.

The campaign didn’t start well at all for the Hoops, crashing out of Champions League qualifying by losing 3-2 on aggregate to Midtjylland.

But, they bounced back in style, hammering Czech side Jablonec 4-2 away and 3-0 at home in the third qualifying round.

This set up a tie with AZ in the play-off round, in which the Celts won the first meeting 2-0 at Parkhead; Kyōgo Furuhashi with a wonderful opener.

In the second leg a week later in the Netherlands, despite taking the lead after just two minutes through Kyōgo, it was a nervy night.

AZ led 2-1 at the break, Carl Starfelt with a comedy own goal, but Celtic held on to book their ticket into the group phase.

This is the 11th successive season Celtic have enjoyed European group phase football, including in the Champions League four times, most recently in 2017.

Domestically, the Celts have lost two of their first four Premiership games for the first time since 1997, going down 2-1 at Hearts and 1-0 at Rangers.

On Saturday, Ange Postecoglou’s side easily beat relegation favourites Ross County 3-0 at Parkhead to move up to fifth in the table.

Cameron Carter-Vickers scoring on debut before Albian Ajeti netted a quick-fire brace.

In the new-look Europa League, the group winners qualify for the round of 16 whilst the runners-up go into the preliminary knockout round.

The teams who finished third drop into the new Europa Conference League so Celtic would have to endure a calamity to miss out on the coveted post-Christmas European football.

The four games against Betis and Leverkusen will not be easy though, so Postecoglou’s team may be thankful of that third-place fall-back option.

Just four miles south of the scene of the 2003 UEFA Cup Final, will Celtic get a result in Seville?

Given that Real Betis played as recently as Monday night, Manuel Pellegrini’s side could be at a physical disadvantage.

There will be an unrelated change in goal with 38 year old Claudio Bravo, who’s won 16 major honours in his career, coming in.

Summer signing Rui Silva is the number one having started all four La Liga games so far but Bravo is a more than able deputy.

At the back, Héctor Bellerín made his debut on Monday, after joining from Arsenal, and could start once more.

Alongside though, Germán and Juan Miranda could come in at the expense of Marc Bartra and Álex Moreno.

In midfield, they have options, the most eye-catching of whom is William Carvalho who nearly left in the summer but is still here, anchoring the midfield.

Guido Rodríguez started alongside William at Granada but any of Andrés Guardado, Sergio Canales or Víctor Camarasa could displace him.

Further forward, they have options too, including 40 year old Joaquín who made his senior debut for Betis against Atlético in October 2000.

The same day, Henrik Larsson scored for Celtic in a 1-1 draw away to Aberdeen.

Joaquín could come into the XI alongside Nabil Fekir and Christian Tello but Rodri and Junami are also good options.

Borja Iglesias will lead the line, looking for his first of the season having netted 13 times in the last campaign.

Will Betis be too strong for Celtic in Southern Spain?

As for Celtic, it’s been all change this summer with a new manager coming in, 13 players leaving and 12 new faces arriving.

Can Ange Postecoglou put together a cohesive side in-spite of some key absentees?

Joe Hart is now one of the most experienced members of the squad; he’s played 76 matches in UEFA club competitions and has won 75 England caps.

The defence could feature three new faces after Josip Juranović and Cameron Carter-Vickers made their debuts at the weekend.

The latter, a U.S. international, is on loan from Tottenham and scored against Ross County on Saturday.

He’ll line-up alongside Carl Starfelt which would be a bit harsh on Stephen Welsh who was outstanding in August.

Postecoglou’s first-choice midfield trio appears to be new club captain Callum McGregor, Tom Rogić and David Turnbull which is very attacking.

More defensive options, James McCarthy and Ismaila Soro, are likely to continue on the bench.

Out-wide, Jota made his debut on Saturday so will keep his place on the left with fellow new-recruit Liel Abada on the other side.

James Forrest is a doubt.

Ryan Christie and Odsonne Édouard both left on deadline day, for Bournemouth and Crystal Palace respectively.

The latter is one of the reasons why Celtic are short of centre-forward options.

New fans’ favourite Kyōgo Furuhashi got injured on international duty and Giorgos Giakoumakis isn’t deemed to be up to speed.

The former has been outstanding so far and there are high-hopes for the latter who was the Eredivisie’s top-scorer last season, playing for VVV-Venlo who were relegated.

Without boht, Albian Ajeti will lead the attack; he scored twice at the weekend.

Will Celtic get off the mark on matchday one in Group G?
