Missing Players and team news:
Betis will again be without the services of Dani Martin and Victor Camarasa on Friday through injury, but the home side are otherwise in good shape, with Marc Bartra potentially making his return. Head coach Pellegrini is expected to resist the temptation to make changes from the side that lost to Sevilla, but there might be a switch in formation from a 4-4-1-1 to a 4-2-3-1. Nabil Fekir, Sergio Canales and Aitor Ruibal should all keep their spots in the forward areas, while Borja Iglesias could again get the nod over Juanmi and Loren Moron to feature at the tip of the attack. As for Levante, Sergio Postigo, Nemanja Radoja, Gonzalo Melero and Jose Campana all missed out against Valencia last time out and that will again be the case on Friday night. Oscar Duarte had to be replaced just before the hour against Los Che, and Rober is on standby to start if the 31-year-old does not recover, but it could otherwise be the same side that started the derby. Roger Marti’s goal should see the Spaniard keep his spot alongside Jose Luis Morales in the final third of the field, while Ruben Rochina could be handed another start in a wide area.
