Real Betis travel to the Illes Balears to face CD Ibiza later today in the Copa del Rey round of last 32.
As Los Verdiblancos begin the defence of their title, Manuel Pellegrini is expected to rotate his team from the one that drew against Athletic Club last week. Claudio Bravo will most likely start between the sticks while veteran Joaquín is predicted to feature in Real Betis’ midfield.
As per usual with cup games, Willian José will most certainly get the nod ahead of Borja Iglesias up front.
This will probably be Juanmi’s first start since his recovery from an injury that had kept him sidelined for months.
Predicted Real Betis lineup against CD Ibiza
AS predict that Pellegrini will field the following starting XI against CD Ibiza: Claudio Bravo – Aitor Ruibal, Germán Pezzella, Edgar González, Juan Miranda – Joaquín, Guido Rodríguez, Rodri, Andrés Guardado, Juanmi – Willian José.
The match is set to kick off at 4 pm CET.
