Real Betis vs Sevilla
Spain – Copa del Rey
Date: Saturday, 15 January 2022
Kick-off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarín.
Real Betis and Sevilla are the two teams behind Real Madrid in terms of the La Liga title race. These two teams are set to lock horns at the Estadio Benito Villamarín in a Derbi Sevillano in the quarter finals of the Copa Del Rey this Saturday.
Real Betis have dropped a significant amount of points in their recent games and in the process have fallen out of the title race.
Sevilla meanwhile are in incredible form and possibly looking like the only team that can stop Real Madrid from winning their 35th Spanish League title.
Los Verdiblancos in their most recent match was held by Rayo Vallecano to a 1-1 draw away from home after they had a man sent off in the 33rd minute of the fixture.
This was the third consecutive league fixture in which they had dropped points. Gaining seven points from the last five league fixtures they are now third in La Liga, a massive 15 points behind league leaders Real Madrid.
Los Nervionenses defeated Getafe by a score line of 1-0 on the last match day at home. This marked the club’s 4th win in five league fixtures.
Dropping just a couple of points in their last six league fixtures the club is now just five points behind Real Madrid in second place.
Real Betis vs Sevilla Head-to-head
- Sevillistas leads the Great Derby with 64 wins, 39 losses and 32 draws.
- They are undefeated in the last six meetings.
- The winning side registered a clean sheet in three of the last four fixtures.
- No more than two goals were scored in those four fixtures.
- The visitors have lost just once in their previous five trips to this stadium.
Real Betis vs Sevilla Prediction
The hosts have lost half of their previous four home fixtures. In such a form I do not see them defeating a club that lost just once away from home in the last six outings. This is further supported by the one sided H2H record.
The visitors have registered a clean sheet in five of their last six wins, while the hosts have failed to score in all of their losses at home this season. Therefore I don’t think the hosts will score this weekend.
