Betis Sevilla vs. FC Sevilla / La Liga – The city derby between Betis and Sevilla is played in the last round of La Liga and the situation is such that Betis has managed to secure Europa League for the next season and what is also very important to them, they have five points more than Sevilla, which is still is not sure about entering on European scene. Betis was particularly good in the second half of the season, and after eight rounds, they were defeated in the last round, while Sevilla on the other hand after a long crisis, managed to celebrate in the previous two duels and thus remain in the game for placement in Europa League. In the first part of the season, Betis has celebrated with 5-3 over Seville as guest. Begins: 12.05.2018. – 18:30 CET
Betis has achieved the goal for this season and after a couple of years we will watch them again in Europa League. When they performed the last time, Sevilla has just eliminated them and that was an additional motive for this duel, although it is clear that you never need a special motive for the city derby. They are finally better than their rivals this season, they have defeated them in the first part of the season and now they want to confirm it, and it is not unimportant from which position they will qualify in Europa league.
It would be ideal to stay fifth, and the win in this derby might be a confirmation of that, while in the case of a defeat, they might be seventh and again behind Sevilla. They were defeated in Bilbao in the last round and Mandi was not in the last line, as well as Barragan. Now both are coming back, while Firpo and Feddal, and both goalkeepers are all out of action.
Probable lineups Betis Sevilla: P.Lopez – Mandi, J.Amat, Bartra – Barragan, J.Garcia, Fabian, Durmisi – Joaquin, Boudebouz, Sanabria
After a series of seven games without defeat, it became very questionable whether Sevilla will play in Europa League next season, since it has long become clear that we will not see them again in the Champions League. They decided to change their coach and it was worth it because when Joaquin Caparrosa took over this team, they have made two wins in two duels. True, they both played on the domestic pitch, but against very unpleasant rivals. Particularly big pressure was in the match against Real Sociedad because that team wished to enter the race with a victory, but Sevilla celebrated with 1-0 and practically excluded them from the fight.
During the week they played a match against Real Madrid and only the name of their opponent reveals that it was also a tough match, however, the guests played in a combined lineup and made the job easier for the Andalusians. The final 3-2 might not even show the real picture, because Sevilla had the lead with 3-0, and Caparros has surprised us again with the composition and Pareja was on the center-back, Pizarro in the defensive midfield, Layun was pretty offensive, and two strikers on the field. We now expect new changes in all team lines.
Probable lineups FC Sevilla: Soria – Layun, Mercado, Lenglet, Escudero – Roque, N'Zonzi – Sarabia, Banega, Correa – S.Ramirez
