Real Betis v Cádiz: Preview PA SEVILLA, November 26 (Primera Liga) - Real Betis captain Juanito Gutierrez has urged his team-mates to channel their efforts into improving their precarious league position now that they have been eliminated from the Champions League. Defeat in the fiercely competitive Andalucian derby against Sevilla left the Betis players bruised and demoralised while they were also knocked out of Europe's premier competition on Wednesday after managing only a draw against Liverpool at Anfield. The result in itself was good but on the back of their other performances in the group they will now be competing in the UEFA Cup. Betis have no time to wallow in their plight as they are currently lying third from bottom in the league and they need to start picking up points quickly. That will not be easy however against a Cadiz side who, although out of form, remain a competitive and organised side. ``We cannot be overly pleased by what has happened in the Champions League because we have not gone through to the next round. However we have competed against Liverpool, the actual champions and Chelsea, the Premier League champions and one of the best teams in the world and so for that reason we are partly satisfied,'' said Juanito. ``We need to learn from the mistakes that we made so that if we return with another opportunity then we can do better. Now we are in the UEFA Cup and we have a lot more chances there in spite of the fact that we wanted to stay in the Champions League and compete amongst the best. ``Domestically we are not going as we would have liked - above all with our position in the table. We have had good games but in the end we have lost by the smallest of margins. That means that we are now in a position which is worrying although there are still a lot of games to be played. We need now to all work together and start to pick up maximum points. He also bemoaned the side's shortage of forwards saying: ``We have been unlucky in that we have been left without strikers and that is going to be a problem against Cadiz. ``Oliveira is injured and Dani will also be out of action for a month. So we will now have to do what we can with Fernando Varela or whoever else plays with him.'' The match against Betis is going to have extra significance for Cadiz's Juanjo Bezares who was trained in the Sevilla ranks and will now be going out to beat his former club's rivals. ``If I have a good game against Betis I know that everyone in Sevilla will take notice. I do not think that the reaction I get will be like when Sergio Ramos (ex-Sevilla player) played there but for me it will be a big match and I will go out to do my best,'' he said. Cadiz coach Victor Esparrago could be without Matias Pavoni who has a thigh strain and is a doubt for the match.
