Real Betis host HJK Helsinki at the Estadio Benito Villamarín in the final round of the Europa League group stages, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.
Real Betis have already won their group and will most likely rest their key players before their derby against Sevilla on Sunday.
Sergio Canales, who did not train with the team on Tuesday, is in the match-day squad, but is unlikely to start. Joaquín, who was starting in Los Verdiblancos’ Europa League matches regularly, suffered an injury last week is expected to be sidelined until after the World Cup.
As per usual in Europe, Willian José will almost certainly get the nod ahead of Borja Iglesias.
Predicted Real Betis lineup against HJK Helsinki
Marca predict that Manuel Pellegrini will use the following starting XI against HJK Helsinki: Claudio Bravo – Youssouf Sabaly, Edgar González, Victor Ruiz, Juan Miranda – Luiz Henrique, Paul Akouokou, Rodri, William Carvalho, Aitor Ruibal – Willian José.
