DATE/TIME – Saturday 13th April 2019, 20:45 (Spanish Time)
STADIUM – Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan
COMPETITION – La Liga
The Seville derby is always a wonderful occasion that showcases Spanish football at its most passionate. This one should be no different with both sides pushing for European qualification. Betis have had the better of the recent meetings, taking 7 points from their 3 derbies under Quique Setien. Notably the one they didn’t win was when Joaquín Caparrós was in caretaker charge of Sevilla at the end of last term.
Caparrós is Mr Sevilla in many respects and he will be sure to make each one of his players understand the significance of this game. With their European adventure over, Sevilla have finally had a few midweeks free to just get some energy back and some players fit again. They head into this one with basically a full squad available besides Maximilian Wöber and Nolito, neither of whom are key men.
Betis though are left fretting over the fitness of Sergio Canales, who has had an exceptional first season in Seville. The midfielder is suffering from a sprained ankle and may not be risked which is certainly a blow but Betis are also out of all the cups now and they’ve had a week to fully focus all their energies on this one.
The visitors really need a result as they struggle to stay in contention for European qualification. They famously won 5-3 on this ground last term but it could be a different kind of with the more defensively minded Caparros in charge of Sevilla now.
Next Up – Real Valladolid vs Getafe (Sunday 12:00)
Sevilla vs Real Betis Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Sevilla
Betting Tip: Sevilla Win @ 1.71 with Spin Palace Sports (18+)
Betis played reasonably well against Villarreal last weekend but at times they look like a side that doesn’t quite fully believe in what they are trying to do anymore. A few good results can change that of course but in the high-octane derby environment, a resurgent Sevilla look capable of coming out on top here.

Pablo Sarabia has been brilliant for Sevilla this term. The change in coach has seen him move out wide but he will be delighted to have already reached 10 goals and 10 assists in La Liga this term, the only player besides Leo Messi to have managed that feat.
