Manuel Pellegrini is the teacher. Eduardo Court, the student. Football crossed its paths years ago in River Plate when the Chilean took over the team where Chacho played. Tonight they meet again in the Spanish League as rivals on the benches. Specifically, that of Betis and Celta. The admiration and affection are mutual. Coudet defines Pellegrini as a soccer father.
He has helped me a lot. When I decided to train I sat down with him. I only have praise. I have followed in his footsteps a lot. It is strange to have to face each other. That they do well makes me happy. The Verdiblanco, for his part, does not skimp on the praise when referring to his former player and predicts a good future in LaLiga.
He was a player of great dedication to the leadership of the group, and from that moment and I thought it would be technical. Coming to Spain is doing well for progress. It poses a football reflects their mentality of a big team. That has passed Celta and I’m very happy for him. I’m sure Spain has a high-quality coach for many years said the Chilean.
The Celta seeks to release his locker in 2021. The LaLiga team that best finished 2020, with five victories and a draw that boosted it to eighth place from relegation places, has had a disastrous start to the year with two defeats in the home competition and the cup elimination in Ibiza. To achieve this goal, he appears at the Benito Villamarín, again without Iago Aspas. Of the 30 encounters in which the CeltsThey have not been able to count – during these years – with that of Moana.
They have lost 20. Alarming fact. On the contrary, Eduardo Coudet recovers to Nolito and Renato Tapia. A relief for the technician. Both were not in the win against Villarreal in Balaídos. The former was sitting on the bench without playing a single minute, having received a medical discharge that same day. The second completed a cycle of reprimands. The one from Sanlúcar is the second top scorer in the squad and the Peruvian is the footballer who balances Celta de Coudet.
Iago Aspas is not there but both returns are not a minor matter for the interests of Celtic. Manuel Pellegrini also recovers troops. The Betis coach can already count on important players such as Joaquín, Montoya, Guido, and Miranda. The negative note yesterday was the confirmation of the injury of the goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, the fourth this season. Unlike their rival, the Verdiblancos have started the year well. They achieved a draw in the derby and have three victories – two in the Cup against Mutilvera and Sporting and another in the league against Huesca. Tonight they have the opportunity to finish the first lap with their best streak of the season and consolidate the much-desired regularity that allows them to continue climbing.
Starting at 9:00 p.m., the student will challenge the teacher at Benito Villamarin
