Sevilla FC vs Real Betis Preview

 

Sevilla FC vs Real Betis

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

Date: 6th January 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Sevilla have been the most successful of these rivals in recent times but this contest remains one of the most interesting derbies in Spanish football.

This game will be the first league game for new manager Vincenzo Montella who replaced the ruthlessly sacked Eduardo Berizzo.

Berizzo left them inside the top five and through to the next round of games in the Champions League.

Mentella started well with a 2-0 win over Cadiz in the Copa Del Rey but can he win his first derby?

Sevilla’s home games this season have been very low scoring as they have netted just 1.18 goals this season and all of their home matches have been under 3.5 goals.

However, they have a strong record in this tie and having won over 70% of their home games this season, makes them favourites to come out on top in this tie.

Real Betis are also a struggling side after a solid start to the new season which saw them get some impressive results both home and away and their manager has surely started feeling the pressure.

Having started the season as a full scale attacking side, their manager Quique Setien seems to have taken a more cautious approach to the game as their last four games have ended in under 2.5 goals scored.

Betis have lost all their last 5 derby matches against Sevilla.
