Do AFCB have the quality to beat Real Betis?

Real Betis have been playing a few premier League sides this summer. They have already come up against Huddersfield Town in the Essen Cup beating the 2-0 in the semi-final and they are due to play Cardiff City on 4 August, AFCB's first league opponents. They have also come up against Nottingham Forest who Bournemouth have played.
AFCB are set to take on a third Spanish side this summer in Real Betis tonight.

The Spaniards have also been spending this summer. One of their new signings is defensive midfielder William Carvalho - a Portuguese international player from Sporting Lisbon. They have also signed Takashi Inui from Spanish side Eibar who scored for Japan against Senegal at the World Cup this year. Midfielder, Roque Mesa has also signed from Swansea and keeper Joel Robles from Everton. These signings will boost the club's number ahead of a Europa League season for the team.

Arsenal were linked earlier this summer with Junior Forpo of Real Betis who is a versatile left-sided defender and midfielder. Wolves have also targeted striker Joao Mario who is rated at £38m, according to Birmingham Live.

Quique Setién is Real Betis' manager, who has been at the club since 2017. He was at Las Palmas for the two years previous to that.

The Cherries may play the team that started against Bristol City or Howe could mix it up a bit to keep Cardiff City guessing for the first Premier League match. As we get nearer to 11 August there is really only this weekend to impress the manager and if that doesn't get the players motivated then I don't know what will. UTCIAD!

In other news, AFCB have been turned down by Levante for an alleged €30m bid for Jefferson Lerma. Should AFCB go back in for hm or should they call it a day on this transfer?
