Porto full-back Miguel Lopes will spend the rest of the 2010-2011 season in the Spanich second-tier with Real Betis. Lopes, who impressed for Rio Ave in the 2008-2009 season, was quickly snapped up by Liga powerhouse FC Porto. He has since found playing time hard to come by, with Fucile and Sapunaru more established players. When Emidio Rafael was bought this summer, Lopes must have realized that it was time to try elsewhere. Lopes will be the only Portuguese player playing for Betis this season, after it was announced that Ricardo had not made the first team, and Nelson was to be loaned out to Osasuna.
