Sevilla vs Real Betis
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 13th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán (Sevilla).
Sevilla is facing a challenge which would have been hard to believe some seasons back. Getafe has strongly posted themselves in the final Champions League spot, which earlier was the bread and butter of Sevilla, Valencia, Villarreal, etc.
With seven games remaining, Sevilla does have enough time to make up the current one-point deficit, but the team can’t afford to slip up anymore. Getafe is taking on a relegation-battler this weekend, and this forces Sevilla to deliver.
Betis has seen a dip in their form, and this has led to them being three points off the final Europa League door. Valencia is currently in possession of it, and Alaves and Athletic Bilbao are also in the mix. Real needs to act fast if they are not to miss out on their dream.

Sevilla vs Real Betis Prediction
Quite a thrilling match we have on hands. Sevilla is just a point away from Champions League entry, while Betis is just three away from the Europa League. Only 21 points are left to play for, and here on, every single point counts. Both these teams are not worried about the relegation threat and are out of all competitions. All that remains is the league and qualification to Europe. Count on them to give the toughest of fights to each other.
Goals from both teams are the most likely outcome this Saturday, considering the circumstances. Moreover, three of the last four h2h matches had the BTTS option checked, and the last encounter at this venue did it in style. An eight-goal thriller saw at least three goals from each team.
Going on, Sevilla does hold the upper hand due to their better form, and especially due to their home advantage. Betis has struggled on the road in recent games, and Sevilla will try to capitalize on this. Importantly, nine of the last twelve h2h wins and ten of the last fourteen at this venue went to Sevilla. Count on them to do that this time as well.
