Betis is the team with the most comebacks in Europe

The Real Betis achieved this Saturday Cádiz win a game that started losing for the seventh time this season, which makes it the team in the five major European leagues that has managed to come back from an adverse marker the most times to win this season, a total of seven times, more than the Real Madrid, PSG or Inter Milan, who have done it six times.

Manuel Pellegrini explained after Saturday’s triumph at the Nuevo Mirandilla that he fully trusted his team to be capable of doing what they had already done six other times over the course of the season: “The changes increased our offensive volume. Tello and Borja scored “Furthermore, we never got upset, we knew we could turn the score around. Solidarity between all of us has helped us to be here,” stressed the Betis coach.

Real Betis, in LaLiga, have won three games and drawn another three of the fifteen they have started losing. His first comeback was against Levante (3-1) on November 28 with a hat-trick by Juanmi (54′, 63′ and 78′) after Mustafi’s opening goal (7′). On January 21, he came from behind the initial goal scored by Raúl de Tomas (14′) for Espanyol (1-4) with four from Borja Iglesias (31′ penalty), Guido (36′), Borja Iglesias (53′) and Willian José (76′). And on Saturday the initial goal by Iván Alejo (58′) was traced back in Cádiz (1-2) with two others by Tello (78′) and Borja Iglesias (84′ penalty).

The first great comeback for Real Betis this season occurred on September 16 in the Europa League, as Celtic went on to win 0-2 at the Benito Villamarín after 27 minutes and the Verdiblancos turned the scoreboard around with four goals from Miranda (32′), Juanmi (35′), Borja Iglesias (51′) and Juanmi (53′), with Ralston scoring the final 4-3 in the 87th minute.

In the Copa del Rey, Real Betis has staged another three comebacks that have catapulted them to the final: the first in Talavera (2-4), where they qualified in extra time and with some providential saves by Joel Robles. The second against Sevilla FC (2-1), who gained an advantage through Papu Gómez (35′) in the round of 16 tie and then conceded an Olympic goal by Fekir (39′), after which the game had to be Suspended for throwing a stick that hit Jordan. The next day, Canales completed the comeback (73′). In the first leg of the semifinals against Rayo (1-2), Betis first conceded 1-0 through Álvaro García (5′) and turned the score around with goals from Borja Iglesias (26′) and William Carvalho (68′), this one after a superb shot at Catena.

In Spain, Real Madrid has come from behind 6 times (4 in the League, PSG and Elche), Barcelona 5 (3 in the League, Galatasaray and Linares), Atlético 4 (3 in the League and Milan), Valencia 3 (all in the League ) and Sevilla FC only once, last Friday against Granada.

City, for example, has only come from behind 2 of 10 adverse markers and Liverpool 3 of 9.
