Sevilla – Real Betis (La Liga)

The 18th matchday of La Liga opens with the Andaluzia derby, with Sevilla and Real Betis in action on Saturday night at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium. Sevilla hired coach Vincenzo Montella to lead the team from now on, with the Italian coach leading the Rojiblancos to a victory in his first match at the helm of the team, although it was in a match for the Copa del Rey. Real Betis, on their turn, are hoping not to start the year the same way they ended 2017, with a defeat.

Sevilla are in 5th place with 29 points, result of 9 victories, 2 draws and 6 defeats, with 20 goals scored and 22 goals conceded. After a poor run of results, Sevilla decided to hire Vincenzo Montella as head coach, taking Eduardo Berizzo’s place at the helm of the team, with the Italian coach pulling out a victory in his first official match, against Cadiz for the Copa del Rey. The Sevillistas entered in 2018 with the right foot and this will be their first match of the year for La Liga.

Sevilla are winless in their last 3 matches in the competition, conceding 8 goals and scoring just 1 in the process, a poor sequence of results that is starting to compromise 5th place. Still, the team are undefeated at home so far, they have won 20 out of 24 possible points, and have kept clean sheets in 5 of those 8 home matches. At the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, the team has never suffered more than 1 goal per game.

In their last 5 official matches, Sevilla has a record of 1 victory, 2 draws and 2 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 1-1 draw away to Maribor, for the Champions League. This result was followed by a 5-0 defeat against Real Madrid, a 0-0 home draw against Levante, a 3-1 defeat against Real Sociedad, and in their last match, a 0-2 victory against Cadiz, for the Copa del Rey. Carriço and Pareja, both injured, and Pizarro, suspended, are all out for this match.

Probable Lineup: Rico – Mercado, Lenglet, Kjaer and Escudero – Banega, N’Zonzi and Vázquez – Navas, Muriel and Nolito.

laliga competiçaoReal Betis, on their turn, are in 14th place with 21 points, result of 6 victories, 3 draws and 8 defeats, with 25 goals scored and 31 goals conceded. Betis finished 2017 with a home defeat against Athletic Bilbao, arriving here with the aim of starting 2018 in another way. With only 1 victory in the last 8 consecutive La Liga matches, pressure is building on Quique Setien and his style of play.

This recent bad moment has brought the team closer to the relegation zone, sitting now only 6 points above the bottom three. Away from home, the Verdiblancos won just one of their last four matches in the competition, scoring only 2 goals and conceding 7 in the process. Betis have the 3rd worst defensive sector in La Liga, and the final result in this derby might dictate Quique Setién’s future at the helm of the team.

In their last 5 official matches, Real Betis has a record of 1 victory and 4 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 3-5 defeat against Cadiz, for the Copa del Rey. This result was followed by a 1-0 defeat against Las Palmas, a 0-1 defeat against Atletico Madrid, a 0-2 victory over Malaga, and in their last match, a 0-2 defeat against Athletic Bilbao. Campbell and Sanabria, both injured, and Jordi Amat, suspended, are all out for this match.

Probable Lineup: Adán – Barragán, Feddal, Mandi and Durmisi – Guardado, García and Ruiz – Joaquín, León and Tello.

Sevilla has won 7 of their last 8 direct clashes, drawing the other.
