UEL: Real Betis Manager, Pellegrini Reveals Why They Lost To Man Utd

Spanish side Real Betis failed to replicate their performance against Real Madrid over the weekend as they lost 4-1 to Manchester United in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday evening.

Goals from Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Antony, and Wout Weghorst gave Manchester United the deserved win over the Spanish side with Ayoze Perez scoring the only goal for the visitors.

After the game, Real Betis manager Manuel Pellegrini reveals why his team lost to the Red Devils.

Real Betis manager Manuel Pelligrini: “We competed very well in the first-half. It was a great goal from Antony and the corner finished the game off. They were superior towards the end of the game. They could have scored a couple more. The game was decided in five minutes.

“The first-half was even. Once they scored that great goal from Antony – after those two goals – we weren’t the team we normally are.

“Once they had a two-goal advantage their confidence went up and up.

“I don’t think a knockout game is ever over. It won’t be easy. We will try. You have to be calm to try and overcome this situation. There is a big margin but we will give all we can in the second leg.”
