Rangel Expects Tougher Test Against Real Betis

Rangel Expects Tougher Test Against Real Betis

Swansea City right back Angel Rangel expects a tougher test against Real Betis on Saturday than Wednesday's midweek win at home to Celtic.

The Spaniard opened the scoring in that game before Stephen Dobbie doubled our lead to give us a 2-0 win against last season's Scottish Premier League runners-up.

Rangel expects a tough game when Real Betis visit the Liberty Stadium tomorrow for a 3pm kick off:

'Real Betis try to play the same way as us. I am quite sure individually each player will be quality and it will be even harder than the Celtic game (in midweek).

'They will have more tempo and have guys that can settle a game.'


Rangel also spoke about a particular Real Betis who he'll be thanking tomorrow:

'When Roberto Martinez was in charge at Swansea, I was playing for Terrassa and we were playing against Benidorm.

'Roberto came to watch their striker Jorge Molina, but I had the best game ever in my career and he signed me instead, even though I am a right-back.

'I have to thank him because if it wasn't for him then I probably wouldn't be at Swansea.

'Now I have the opportunity to thank him in person on Saturday when we play Real Betis because he is now there.

'He is a good player and was top scorer for them when they got promoted to La Liga last season, so we'll have to keep an eye on him.'
