Match preview

Will Real Betis remain on track to qualify for Europe?

On Friday night, los Verdiblancos were held to a goalless draw by Real Sociedad at Anoeta.

This result means Béticos remain third, two points above la Real, but they're now three points below Atlético Madrid in fourth place.

On the other hand, Manuel Pellegrini’s side are now unbeaten in five, going into their final six league games of the season.

Also, on Saturday, Betis will travel across Seville to Estadio de La Cartuja, where they'll take on Valencia in the Copa del Rey Final.

This'll be Betis' first cup final for 17 years but, in their final game before the huge occasion, will they climb into the top four?

Elche meanwhile all but secured their La Liga status at the weekend by hammering RCD Mallorca 3-0.

Johan Mojica and Pedro Bigas both on target at Estadio Manuel Martínez Valero.

Before this, Francisco's men had lost three successive games, but they're now 13th, with 35 to their name, and are almost safe from relegation.

Will Real Betis be too strong at Estadio Benito Villamarín?

Real Betis team news

Manuel Pellegrini may be tempted to rest and rotate here, with Saturday's Copa del Rey Final on his mind.

Héctor Bellerín got the nod on Friday night but Youssouf Sabaly could return at right-back.

Nabil Fekir and top-scorer Juanmi are their main goal threats.

Borja Iglesias led the line against Real Sociedad, but Willian José could return.

Elche team news

As for Francisco, with his team not in action again for 12 days after this, there's no reason for him to change a winning team.

With Lucas Boyé out injured, Ezequiel Ponce could continue up front; Pere Milla and Pablo Piatti are the alternatives.
