Sevilla v Real Betis Betting Tips: Who will taking Seville derby bragging rights?

| 11.06.2020

La Liga fans rejoice far and wide as a passionate derby clash between Sevilla and Real Betis kicks things off once more, live on La Liga TV tonight.

Sevilla resume in third place and are 4/7 to qualify for the Champions League, while Betis sit 12th and know a derby day win will be just the tonic to shake any lingering relegation fears.

Match Odds

Form? What form? It’s derby day in Andalusia and ‘form’ is often just a throwaway comment. If you add that the two teams haven’t played a competitive match for three months, it’s likely to be all blood-and-thunder tonight.

Sevilla are 17/20 to make home advantage count and take a third derby victory on the spin.

But Betis have the second best points tally (14) from losing positions, with three wins and five draws – you can get the away side 16/5 to win outright and 18/1 to win from behind.

There’s been 31 draws in 130 meetings between the pair, fancy another one? You can find a stalemate at 13/5.

Talking Tactics

Under boss Julen Lopetegui, Los Palanganas are a more astute side than Jorge Sampaoli’s extraordinary but cavalier charges.

Can Lopetegui mastermind derby victory?

Anything other than a 4-3-3 would be a surprise with former Man City man Jesus Navas now often deployed as an auxiliary right back.

They’ll have to do without the suspended Nemanja Gudelj in midfield. But a front-three of the returning Suso, Lucas Ocampos and Luuk De Jong could pose a real threat.

Betis did beat Barcelona before the pause in play, but the match might come too soon for William Carvalho, Juanmi and Diego Lainez.

A spine of Joel Robles, Marc Bartra, Nabil Fekir and Loren Moron look strong at both ends of the pitch.

Goalscorer odds

Sevilla are riding in off the back of a 19 La Liga match scoring streak – you can get Both Teams to Score and Over 3.5 Goals at 23/10.

The home side will be looking to De Jong at 17/10 to net anytime. Ocampos is 7/2 to open the scoring, while midfield lynchpin Ever Banega is 4/1 anytime.

Betis striker Moron is 5/1 to score first, with team-mate Borja Iglesias 23/10 anytime.

Nabil Fekir could be instrumental if his side win and is 8/1 to score last.
