Derby County will take Spanish top-flight side Real Betis in their penultimate pre-season friendly ahead of the 2021/22 season on Wednesday evening (7pm kick-off).
The meeting with the La Liga outfit will provide another worthwhile exercise for manager Wayne Rooney’s players in the lead-up to the new Sky Bet Championship season getting underway on Saturday 7th August.
Derby’s pre-season programme started in early July as the squad reported back for pre-season training after almost eight weeks to recharge their batteries.
A behind-closed-doors match against fellow Championship outfit Fulham got the ball rolling in mid-July before the recent public friendlies against Manchester United at Pride Park Stadium and Salford City at their Peninsula Stadium home.
Several free agents continue to train with Derby and those players are once again in line to play some part against Manuel Pellegrini’s side.
Betis finished the 2020/21 campaign in sixth place in La Liga and reached the Quarter Final stage of the Copa del Rey.
They ended last season with just one defeat in 16 matches, which resulted in them achieving qualification for the UEFA Europa League.
Winger Kamil Jozwiak is set to play some part after returning from an extended break, following his involvement for Poland at the UEFA European Championships in June, last week.
Youngsters Louie Watson and Jack Stretton have returned to training following minor injuries and could make the matchday squad.
Jason Knight (ankle) and Krystian Bielik (knee) will once again not be involved as they continue their rehabilitation work.
Tickets for the game are now off sale, with the club previously advising supporters that tickets would go off sale 24 hours prior to kick-off. Tickets are NOT available on the day of the game.
