The Middlesbrough team will challenge the Real Betis team in a Friendly Match in SMH Group Stadium Stadium, Chesterfield on Saturday, July 22, 2023. For streaming coverage of Middlesbrough vs Real Betis, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Middlesbrough will face Real Betis in a pre-season friendly at Chesterfield on Saturday. This will be Middlesbrough’s final preparation match before kicking off the 2023-24 Championship campaign, while Real Betis still have four more friendly matches before opening their La Liga campaign.
The two teams have met twice before in friendlies. At the first meeting in 2007, Middlesbrough won a landslide victory with a score of 2-0. However, in the second meeting in 2016, Real Betis got their revenge by winning 3-1. This shows that the two teams have a fierce competition.
Middlesbrough came off the back of a 2-0 win over Rotherham United on Wednesday, while Real Betis suffered a 3-1 defeat to Monaco on the same day. Both teams will be looking to improve their form and fitness ahead of the new season.
Middlesbrough are expected to be competitive in the top flight of the Championship next season, having failed to gain promotion via the playoffs last term. They have brought in several new players this summer, such as Tom Glover, Morgan Rogers, Seny Dieng and Rav van den Berg.
Head coach Michael Carrick has done an excellent job since taking charge of Middlesbrough in October last year, recording 18 wins, five draws and 10 defeats from 33 games. They have also shown good consistency in friendly matches this summer, losing only once in four matches.
Middlesbrough will play with an offensive strategy in this match, by maximizing their attack power. Marcus Forss and Matthew Hoppe are likely to start up front, while Sam Silvera and Martin Payero will also get a chance to showcase their skills.
Real Betis, on the other hand, managed to finish in sixth place in La Liga last term, which saw them qualify for next season’s Europa League group stages. They have also got three new players this summer, namely Hector Bellerin and Ayoze Perez on free status, as well as Marc Roca on loan from Leeds United.
Head coach Manuel Pellegrini has just signed a contract extension with Real Betis, which shows the club’s confidence and ambition. However, they still have to improve their form in friendlies this summer, having lost two of the two matches.
Real Betis will play with a defensive strategy in this match, relying on strong defense and counterattacks. Martin Montoya and Ayoze Perez are likely to be included in the squad, while Borja Iglesias and Willian Jose will compete for the main attacking positions.
