Sanchez: We were superior

Real Betis manager Victor Sanchez was unimpressed with his side's 3-3 draw with Celta Vigo at the Estadio Benito Villamarin on Sunday.

The struggling La Liga outfit conceded a 15th-minute goal to Iago Aspas before levelling through a 41st minute Ruben Castro penalty.

Arnaldo Sanabria put Betis into a short-lived lead on 53 minutes before Aspas netted his second with and hour of the match played. And despite German Pezzella regaining the lead for Sanchez's charges, an 85th minute Facundo Roncaglia strike meant both sides had to settle for a point.

The result left Betis in 14th place on the standings with 15 points from 14 games, and Celta in ninth position, with 21 points.

After the match, a disappointed Sanchez said: "Not winning at home can't let us be satisfied.

"The players' faces reflect it because we were much superior to Celta in the second half.

"However, at the beginning of the match they were better, showing superiority in the midfield."

He added: "It took us a while to adapt, but their superiority was only seen in one play that we didn't defend properly. It's something we're working on.

"After the 25th minute, we have done a great match, that's our analysis of the game. Now we need to work on those 25 minutes in the first half that we didn't like, but the players deserve all the credit for the rest of the game, they controlled it and were playing very well."

Sanchez also paid tribute to the club's supporters: "The fans have been fantastic, cheering constantly, but it's normal they get nervous because we are not giving them what they deserve.

"In spite of that first half an hour, the team overcame the momentum and changed the game completely. It's a shame also that we didn't score that fourth goal, and we had a very clear chance to do it so.

"We struggled in set plays and we conceded that final goal. We haven't created a good routine in the marks, we need to keep working to improve it. There are many positive aspects, though."
