The protagonist of the night, Ben Yedder, was the most incisive. He sought the hat trick and got it seven minutes from the end by transforming his third goal into a penalty committed against Corchia.

Shortly before, Berizzo had decided to remove Nolito from the grass, whose inactivity was too noticeable. The man from Cádiz, yes, endured an hour and a quarter in the field without showing signs of concern. His replacement, Jesús Navas, could have rounded the score but the crossbar got in his way.

Rubén Castro strips the margarita off the leaves. Although he was expected to return to Betis as soon as his loan to Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng ended, circumstances have changed considerably since his departure to the Chinese Super League was announced.

To begin with, he was already acquitted of the accusation of mistreatment of his girlfriend, perhaps the main reason then that both the player and the Verdiblanco club made the decision that the best thing for everyone was a change of scenery for the Gran Canaria.

The Chinese Super League will end in four days and, by contract, Betis is obliged to register Rubén Castro on January 1. Until then, the footballer will be able to train with the team led by Quique Setién but in recent days doubts have arisen and now it is not at all certain that he will rejoin the club in which he has played for the last seven years. 

Although his performance is being very high, with six goals in eight games, the forward has not finished adjusting to his new life in the Asian team, where only his coach, Gregorio Manzano and midfielder Mario Suárez speak Spanish. The desire of Rubén Castro, who is now 36 years old, is to hang up his boots in Heliópolis, but a series of circumstances are occurring that are making him rethink his immediate future.  

Logically, a month after the end of his loan, offers began to rain on him, especially from his current team, Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng, from other Chinese football clubs and from Qatar. All of them improve the salary he would receive at Betis, where right now Sergio León and Sanabria would be blocking him due to their great performances.

"I usually worry about the players who are there. If Rubén Castro comes, we will manage it. If it is not, the same. You never know"Quique Setién told Canal Sur Radio when asked about the canary’s possible return.

Madrid’s hit in the discount and falls to seven points

However, Rubén Castro has a thorn in his side, which is to become the top scorer in the history of Betis in the First Division. He is only two goals away from equaling the record held by Poli Rincón, with 78 targets and this detail could be the one that finally resolved his dilemma. 

Horse snatch, donkey stop. The popular proverb reflects like no one else the trajectory of Real Sociedad at this start of the season.

Eusebio Sacristán’s team generated a deluge of praise as a result of his staging by scoring nine points in the first three days of the League and beating Rosenborg (4-0) in his debut in the Europa League. 

At that time, he shared the lead with FC Barcelona, ​​the only one capable of following his rhythm. Ten goals in favor and only four against gave him a leading role in the first leg of the competition. 

The visit of a Real Madrid without margin of error was the beginning of the end of the overwhelming march txuri urdin. That defeat (1-3) was a blow from which the donostiarras have not yet managed to recover. 

One point of the last twelve has dislodged the Real from the noble zone to relocate it to an inconsequential eighth place and the defeat in Saint Petersburg against Zenit confirmed that Eusebio’s team has entered into a spin. 

The realistic set bottomed out with their fourth consecutive defeat, which would have been five if Diego Llorente had not saved a point against Betis when everything seemed lost. 

16 goals conceded in his last five official matches show that alarming defensive fragility is the cause of his collapse. His scoring figures (18 goals in nine games) are more than acceptable, but the instability caused by the injuries of center-backs Raúl Navas or Íñigo Martínez have affected his performance.

Now, after the league match, Real Sociedad visit Mendizorroza, where a rising Alavés awaits them after achieving their first victory (0-2 at Levante). Another negative result would turn on all the alarm lights in Anoeta.

Sevilla will try to make good the point they scored at Anfield with a victory over Maribor, which despite being the current Slovenian champions should not create excessive problems for Eduardo Berizzo’s team.

The defeat at Calderón, the first in nine official games since the season began, has not caused any concern. On the contrary, the squad and coaching staff consider that the European competition will reactivate confidence in their possibilities.

Berizzo will give this Tuesday the list of summoned, in which the main news will be the return of the Danish center-back Simon Kjaer and Nolito, fully recovered from the injury to the right hamstring that he suffered a fortnight ago. 

After drawing at Liverpool in the field, in Seville they make speculations with the possibility of accessing the leadership at the end of the day, as long as the English team does not pass the tie during their visit to Spartak in Moscow.

Atlético and Sevilla fight to stalk Barça

Maribor, who in their two previous appearances in the Champions League never surpassed the last group place, arrives as co-leader (together with Olimpija Ljubljana) of the Slovenian League, although with little hope of giving the bell in the Sánchez Pizjuán, than Sevilla he wants to turn into a fort in order not to miss a single point and thus get his pass on track to the next round.

Real Sociedad made its debut in the Europa League with a resounding thrashing against Rosenborg that confirms the brutal moment in which Eusebio Sacristán’s team is going through, which will undoubtedly have alerted a Real Madrid who will visit Anoeta on Sunday with the need to win.

Match of the first day of the group stage of the Europa League 2017-18 played in Anoeta before 21,479 spectators.

The Norwegian team, run over by the tons of football that fell on them, barely lasted ten minutes. Literally, the txuri urdin squad overwhelmed their rival, who was absolutely shocked since he was seen with two goals down with almost the entire match ahead.

With a suffocating pressure in the opposite field that drowned the Scandinavian players, the outpouring of Eusebio Sacristán’s team allowed Diego Llorente (8 ‘) to open the scoring by taking advantage of a rejection by goalkeeper Hansen and Zurutuza to open a gap by impaling his head to the net a ball put to the millimeter by Xavi Prieto.

There were only two but the Real could achieve a scandal win in the first half that was played in only one direction, the one that marked the Norwegian goal. The collection of San Sebastian occasions was started by Canales (5 ‘) and was completed by Willian José (17’ and 31 ‘), Xabi Prieto (26’) and Carlos Vela (31 ‘) but it was Skjelvic 841’), who scored on his own goal Rosenborg before the break.

From there, Real devoted themselves to keeping the ball and letting time pass to save effort. Eusebio retired important pieces like Xabi Prieto and, even so, completed the win with a new goal, the second from Diego Llorente. Willian José (53 ‘), Juanmi (68’ and 73 ‘) and Canales (75’) had the opportunity to make the result even more scandalous but it was not a question of doing more damage to a Rosenborg who did not even kick.

 Diego Costa has assured this Friday that he does not hold a grudge against the Italian Antonio Conte, Chelsea coach, despite the fact that he informed him through a text message that he did not have him for this season and that he had to find a team.

The Spanish-Brazilian player is now on his way to Madrid to close his signing for Atlético. The Madrid team and Chelsea, the club where Costa played the last three years, agreed yesterday on the transfer, valued at around 62 million euros.

At the beginning of summer, Diego, 28, declared himself in rebellion and refused to join the ‘Blues’ training sessions, seeking the long-awaited transfer to Atlético that has finally taken place.

The player did not enter into the plans this course of coach Conte, who, supposedly, let him know at the end of last season through a brief text message that he did not have him and that he had to find a new team.
