Real Betis vs Sevilla
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 2 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin, Sevilla.
La Liga Sunday will be completed with the Seville derby at Estadio Benito Villamarin where the hosts will be hoping to bag their maiden goal of the campaign after failing to make such accomplishment in past two rounds.
It has been a nightmare start to the new elite class campaign for Los Beticos who fell 0-3 at home to Levante. Such a dreadful performance was followed by a goalless draw to Deportivo Alaves away at Estadio de Mendizorroza last weekend.
The Seville derby thus comes at the worst possible moment for Quique Setien’s men who could find it very hard to produce up front against a well-organized defensive line of Sevilla’s here.
The visitors conceded just one goal in last five games across competitions and they generally got off to a fine kick off to the new season, beating Rayo Vallecano 1-4 on the road before playing a goalless draw to Villarreal at their Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
Real Betis vs Sevilla: Head-to-head
Sevilla were the more successful outfit historically, but they took just one point from last term meetings with Betis.
Los Beticos were super impressive in the final third in these games, bagging seven goals in the process.
Seville derbies produced loads of goals in the recent period in general as each of last three saw three or more goals scored and both teams on the scoreline.
Real Betis vs Sevilla: Prediction
It is hard to expect the continuation of the high-scoring trend in matches between these two sides based on their displays from last weekend.
Betis are yet to score in the new season and we lean towards Sevilla’s clean sheet as the main betting option at the odds of 4.00.
Los Rojiblancos did not concede more than one goal in last five matches across competitions and they certainly come into this in higher spirits.
The value can be found in backing Sevilla to win at the 2.40 odds as well.
