Pressure is growing on Real Betis coach Hector Cuper after last night's 3-0 home reverse by Osasuna.

With Betis supremo Manuel Ruiz de Lopera sounding out intermediaries about available coaches, Cuper knows he must arrest his team's slide or face the axe.

"The team didn't do anything tonight," said the Argentine. "They were very poor.

"They were nervous, worried and the spirit that has been with them was missing. From the opening four seconds we had problems."
