Luis Fernando Tena and his team are in the final phase of their preparation for the upcoming friendly match against Jamaica. The match is scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 11 at the Red Bull Arena in New Jersey.

The players selected by the Mexican coach have been training at the CAR (High Performance Center) of the National Soccer Federation of Guatemala. However, they will depart for the United States on Thursday, November 9.

The team will have their last morning training session and then head towards La Aurora International Airport in the afternoon.

The National Team is scheduled to leave the CAR at 4:30 p.m., with their flight departing at 7:30 p.m.

If everything goes according to plan, they will arrive in New York at 1:30 AM on Friday, November 10. After some rest, the team will conduct a field reconnaissance in the afternoon, leading up to the match on Saturday, November 11 at 6:00 p.m.

This match against Jamaica not only serves as a “revenge” opportunity but also allows Luis Fernando Tena to assess players who may be considered for the World Cup qualifiers starting in 2024.

From the initial squad announced by the Mexican coach, Rodrigo Saravia, Alejandro Galindo, and Erick Lemus have been dropped, while Lynner García has been added.

If the Guatemala National Team does not confirm any other matches in the coming days, the game against Jamaica will be their last fixture for 2023, a year in which they have played 17 matches.

Real Betis is preparing to face Villanovense in the 2023-2024 Copa del Rey. After a draw in Almería, the green and white team seeks to advance in the KO tournament. In the first round, Betis achieved a historic victory against Hernán Cortés. Now, they will face CF Villanovense, a lower category team. The match will be played in Villanueva de la Serena. However, Betis will have several absences in its team, forcing coach Manuel Pellegrini to call up youth players to complete the list of 20 players. Among the absences stand out Isco, Guido, Ayoze, Claudio Bravo, Bartra, Sabaly, William Carvalho, Rodri and Fekir. In addition, Pezzella is also reserved due to physical discomfort. It is expected that many Betis fans will travel to the Extremaduran municipality to support the team in this match. Although the ticket prices have generated some discontent among fans, it is estimated that around 2,000 Betis fans will attend the match. There are still approximately a thousand tickets available to the general public. Regarding the team’s attitude towards the game, Pellegrini has emphasized the importance of approaching it seriously, as if they were playing against themselves.
