Real Betis is hosting Sevilla at Benito Villamarin in the Sevillian derby in round 13 of the Spanish LaLiga. Betis has really disappointed in their last 2 games, they lost both, and they haven’t scored a single goal. Sevilla has lost in the Champions League earlier this week, but they have been solid in LaLiga, and they are only 1 point away from the top.
Betis has now lost two games in a row, but they are still in the top 5 in LaLiga. Betis is now in 5th place with 21 points, 19 scored goals, and 15 conceded goals. Juanmi is the leading goalscorer for Betis with only 4 goals. The injury list is empty for Betis at the moment. In their last game against Leverkusen on the road in the Europa League, Betis has had 56% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 84% of the correct passes. The first half was somewhat good for Betis, and they were losing only 1-0, but they fell apart in the second half, and they conceded 3 more goals. Betis ended up losing this game 4-0. It’s surprising how the team that was scoring so much, playing so well can fall apart in a single game, but they are a good team, and they will bounce back soon.
Sevilla is the best defensive team in the league this season with only 7 conceded goals, and their offense hasn’t been bad with 19 scored goals, but they are now in the last place of their group in the Champions League with 3 points. The good news for Sevilla is they still have a solid chance to qualify for the next stage, but they will need at least 1 win in the last two games, but with 2 wins they are most likely through. As far as LaLiga goes, Sevilla is in 3rd place with 24 points, and if you ask me, they are still one of the favorites to win the title, and I would love that. In that Champions League game against Lille at home, Sevilla has had 59% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a decent 83% of the correct passes. after they got ahead in the 15th minute, Sevilla has conceded a penalty in the 43rd minute, and another goal in the 51st minute. The result hasn’t changed again, and the final score of this game was 1-2 in favor of Lille. Mir and Lamela have been a great duo for Sevilla up front, and they have each scored 4 goals so far this season. I don’t think that Champions League loss will affect Sevilla’s performance here, but they need to step up their game if they want a win. Sevilla has been dominant in this matchup, and Betis will definitely have a tough time scoring here, especially after they haven’t scored in their last 2 games. I think this will be a tough match, and these derbies usually are, and for that reason, I will take the red card in this game.
