Sevilla is hosting Real Betis at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in a derby match of round 28 in Spanish LaLiga.
Sevilla is having a very good season overall, but those few games before the stoppage, Sevilla was not playing well, and it could cost them in the near future. Sevilla is in third place in LaLiga standings with 47 points, 9 points less than Real Madrid in second place. The race for that third place is tight, as we have 5 teams within 5 points. Sevilla has scored 39 goals this season, but their defense hasn’t been on the same level because Sevilla conceded 29 goals in 27 games. Sevilla is still playing in the Europa League where they knocked out Cluj in the first round of the knockouts, and they are now facing Roma, once the Europa League starts again. Ocampos is the leading goal scorer in Sevilla with 10 goals, while De Jong added 5 goals. Ever Banega added 6 goals. Gudelj is suspended because of the yellow cards and he will not be playing in this game. In their latest match in LaLiga against Atletico Madrid on the road, Sevilla has had 56% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, and 80% of the correct passes. The first half of this match was extremely fun, and we saw 4 goals, 2 from each team. The result didn’t change again, and this match ended in a 2-2 draw. Sevilla is a good team with a lot of talent, and they can play fantastic soccer. Thanks to Atletico slipping earlier in the season, Sevilla has the opportunity to stay in that third place, the question is if they can stay consistent.
Betis has had some good, and bad moments this season, but they certainly have more quality and could be higher in the standings. Betis is in 12th place with 33 points, 38 scored goals, and huge 43 conceded goals. As you can see, Betis’ defense is junk and the Europa League is further and further away for Betis. In their last 7 LaLiga games, Betis has conceded at least one goal in 6 of those games, while they scored a goal in 5 of those 7 games. Loren Moron has scored 9 goals for Betis this season, while Joaquin added 8 goals, and Nabil Fekir scored 7 goals. There are no notable injuries for Betis which means coach Rubi will have the full roster at his disposal. In their latest LaLiga match against Real Madrid at home over three months ago, Betis was outstanding with 42% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, and 76% of accurate passes. The first half of this match ended in a 1-1 draw, but Betis was able to score a goal in 82nd minute and to win this match 2-1. As I’ve mentioned earlier, Betis has a good team, and they could be closer to the Europa League, but their defense is not allowing them to do that.
There is a long-standing rivalry between Sevilla and Real Betis. The trends are on Sevilla’s side, but with this three-month break, you can never know what could happen. One thing has been consistent when Sevilla is playing at home against Betis, and that were goals.
