Sevilla vs Real Betis Betting Tips & Predictions
We’ve been eagerly awaiting the return of La Liga football following the COVID-19 pandemic and it appears that the Sevilla derby will be the first Spanish top flight match, with the game between Sevilla and Betis scheduled to take place on Friday 12 June.
Sevilla currently sit third in La Liga after a successful campaign to date, with Julen Lopetegui back into the groove as a football manager following a difficult spell which saw him leave the Spanish national team post before a short-lived reign at Real Madrid.
Los Palanganas are currently “best of the rest” behind Barcelona and Real, with Sevilla looking to fend off Sociedad, Getafe, Atletico Madrid and Valencia to make sure of Champions League qualification next term.
Sevilla have been reasonably solid at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán this season, although the win rate has been lower than 50% which is a far cry to previous campaigns where the home stadium has been a fortress.
Things are also going to be made harder by virtue of the fact that there will be no fans in attendance for this Sevilla derby, with Real Betis making the short journey for this encounter and they sit twelfth in the division.
Barring a run of bad results, it is unlikely that Los Verdiblancos will be dragged into a relegation scrap this season, with Rubi doing a sound job as Head Coach although away wins have been thin on the ground this term.
Betis have had just one victory away from the Estadio Benito Villamarin although they have drawn half of their other games on the road and goals have been in short supply.
On the flip side, Betis did sign off with a 2-1 victory over Real Madrid and they also found the net in Valencia after a crazy 3-3 draw against Mallorca, with Nabil Fekir getting among the goals before the lockdown.
We think that it’s difficult to have a huge amount of confidence in the outcome of this match considering the circumstances although it would seem reasonable for both sides to find the net during the ninety minutes.
