Edú and Pavone, the Betis dangermen

Berta Brau

Although their side does not score too many goals, Betis do have two top class strikers in Edú and Pavone, who between them have scored 17 of their team’s 33 goals this season.

Edú, with ten goals, and Pavone, with seven, are clearly the main reference in the Betis squad when it comes to goal-getting.

Edú the veteran

In his fourth season with the Andalusian outfit, Luis Eduardo Schmidt, known to the football world as Edú, is the leading scorer in the side managed by Francisco Chaparro. Six of the ten were scored at the Ruiz de Lopera, with the likes of Mallorca, Getafe, Real Madrid and Espanyol suffering the effects of his strength in front of goal. He has an 18% effectiveness rate (having converted ten of his 55 of shots on goal), he is especially good in the air and seven of these goals have been scored from the head, and the other three with his right foot.

Pavone the new arrival

Hugo Mariano Pavone joined Betis at the start of the season from Argentine club Estudiantes de la Plata, where he had played since 2000/2001. He has been on target seven times this season, scoring twice in the same game against both Zaragoza and Almería, and also against Levante, Getafe and Murcia. The 25 year old has a scoring rate of 19%, having converted seven out of 36 attempts.

Edú beat Valdés
In the 2004/2005 season, FC Barcelona visited the Ruiz de Lopera in the league, and the first goal of the match was scored by Edú. Gerard replied for Barcelona, but a second Betis goal, this time for Oliveira, meant it was a sorry night in Seville for the Catalan outfit.
