On Saturday night, Sevilla host Real Betis at the Sanchez Pizjuan in La Liga in a potentially vital Seville derby for both sides.

Sevilla are currently in the Europa League spot in La Liga but are just one point behind Getafe, who are situated in the last Champions League berth. A good recent run of form consisting of four wins in their last five league outings has played a big part in Los Rojiblancos’ once again becoming contenders for La Liga’s top-four.

Last time out in La Liga, Joaquin Caparros’ team recorded a 2-0 win at Real Valladolid. The win saw the home side keep a third clean sheet in their last four league matches.

Rather unusually for Sevilla, their home record has been inconsistent of late in La Liga. The Andalusians have won two, lost two and drawn one of their last five league games at the Sanchez Pizjuan.

However, Sevilla have been highly prolific in front of goal on home soil of late, scoring at least twice in four of their last five league games.

A recent inconsistent run of league form has seen Real Betis slip to ninth place in La Liga. Los Verdiblancos ended a three-game winless run last time out with a 2-1 home win over relegation-threatened Villarreal. The game saw both teams score for Betis’ fourth straight match.

Betis have a poor recent away record in La Liga, winning just two of their last 11 outings on their travels in the Spanish top-flight. Their recent away games in the Spanish top-flight have been relatively low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five away games.

The visitors have won two of their last three games against their city rivals while remaining unbeaten in the process.

Forebet predicts that Sevilla will record a victory in a low scoring game to enhance their chances of a top-four finish this season.
