Betis vs Sevilla Prediction & Betting tips
On Saturday evening it will be feasted again, because at Benito Villamarin the always loaded city derby between Real Betis and Sevilla will be on the program again! Does Seville play green-white or red-white Saturday night?
Real Betis has had an absolute top season. After a stiff start, the team of coach Quique Setien started to run better, with qualifying for the Europa League as well-deserved reward. Last weekend, the Green Whites went down 2-0 at Athletic Bilbao, but on Saturday night the bow will undoubtedly endure again. The derby against arch rival Sevilla is the most important match of the year for the fans.
Setien has to do some puzzling this weekend. Both first goalkeeper Antonio Adan and second choice Dani Gimenez are not fit, so he will most likely have to appeal again to third goalkeeper Pedro Lopez. In addition, he has to miss three Fed players with the injured Zou Feddal, Junior Firpo and probably also Andres Guardado. However, Real Betis has a wide selection, so the team must be able to absorb their absence. Defender Marc Bartra in particular is simply indispensable. Since its winter arrival, the defense of the Andalusians is usually a house.
Sevilla threatened to head for a disaster season, but to the relief of the support, interim manager Joaquin Caparros was able to put a stop to it. After the recent resignation of Vincenzo Montella, the groomed coach took over the helm at the red-white. After the 1-0 victory over Real Sociedad last weekend, Real Madrid was also beaten last Wednesday: 3-2. Thanks to that victory, the Andalusians remain on the course of European football with a seventh place, although they still feel the hot breath of number eight Girona in the neck. The already loaded city derby for Seville is extra important this time.
Caparros has thus ensured the desired shock effect, although he already hinted to rotate. In this final phase of the season, the players are obviously tired, so playing three matches in just a week does not go that easy anymore. It is therefore difficult to predict who will eventually kick off Saturday night. Almost the only security is wing attacker Pablo Sarabia, as he was suspended against Real Madrid. There is also a big chance that Sandro Ramirez will have the preference over Luis Muriel and Wissam Ben Yedder at the point of attack.
