Sevilla FC vs Real Betis
Competition – Spanish Primera
Stadium – Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán
Date: 11th June 2020
Kick-off time – 20:45 GMT
The Spanish La Liga returns with this fixture between Sevilla and Real Betis and both teams will be looking to get a good start to the end of their seasons.
Sevilla went into the suspension of the La Liga season unbeaten in their last six games however they won just two of those games and they will look to start with a win in this game.
Betis won their last game before the suspension of the season but they had been in the midst of a poor run of form that saw them lose four of their previous seven.
Sevilla is actively chasing a Champions League position for next season and they are currently 3rd in the league table with 47 points.
They are being chased by Getafe, Real Sociedad and Atletico Madrid who are at most two points behind them and they would feel that they have to make a winning start to the season.
Betis are further down the La Liga table with just eight points separating them from the relegation zone.
Lucas Ocampos has been important in Sevilla’s bid to return to Europe with ten league goals and two assists.
When these teams meet, the result is usually unpredictable as both sides have won two of the last five head-to-heads between them.
Bookmakers have priced Sevilla up as slight odds-on favourites to come out on top in this game however as with other league restarts, teams and individual players are at varying fitness levels making it an even more unpredictable affair.
