1 They play some of the best football in Europe

Forget Barcelona. Forget Real Madrid. Quique Setien’s Betis play the best football in Spain.

Don’t just take our word for it. Look for yourself.

2 They are rescuing Premier League rejects left, right and centre

Fans of Middlesbrough, Swansea and Arsenal won’t have been blown away by Antonio Barragan, Jordi Amat or Joel Campbell.

But all three have been embraced in Spain, with Barragan providing the assist for Betis’ winner against Madrid.

4 They’ve got a ‘proper’ no.9

With four goals in his last three games, including a winner against Madrid, 21-year-old Antonio Sanabria is living up to his potential.

5 And the best left foot in Europe

You haven’t lived until you’ve seen Andres Guardado deploy his laser guided wand of a left foot.

The versatile Mexico international operates in the heart of midfield and has more assists than any other player in La Liga.

6 And the King of Betis is still going strong

At the age of 36 Joaquin has had a marvellous revival, scoring three times and providing one assist in seven games.

You could still pay in Spanish peseta the first time Joaquin scored for Betis.

7 And finally, just look at that kit

Not many kits top Real Betis home shirt. Simple, clean and effective.

Worthy of any collection.
