Team Form

Sevilla

Recovering from their 2nd consecutive loss, Sevilla clinched a convincing victory against Espanyol. Their face-off ended with 3 goals to 1 in their favor.

 

Vicente Iborra described their recent success as a “necessity.” Aware of their difficulty to score a win during their away matches, Iborra stressed that the win created a sudden shift in their performance. Winning in the host’s territory is something that they should aspire for to ensure their continuous rise in the ranking.

 

Sevilla currently occupies the 11th spot of La Liga. Despite their victory, the club was unable to break into the top 10 and with their match pitted against Real Betis, the rest of the Sevillistas expect to move a notch higher in the table.

 

Real Betis

Survival, not only accumulating points, becomes Real Betis’ top priority when they visit Sevilla. The club just received a 4-1 thrashing from Barcelona that slammed them at the bedrock of the La Liga table. This is their 2nd consecutive loss after the scoreless stalemate that they had against Levante.
While earning a victory adds honor to a particular club, the Béticos rather see it as their way of staying in Spain’s top-flight league. Their lackluster performance is alarming, having lost 4 of their away matches and conceding 3 goals on an average. It suggests not only a lack of a formidable defence, but also the unconscious way of setting up more scoring opportunities for their opponents.
Yet, despite their recent defeat, striker Jorge Molina remains positive about their situation. Molina draws inspiration from their legion of supporters, which continue to support them despite their shortcomings on the pitch.

 

Football betting tip: Sevilla 3-2 Real Betis

Sevilla’s last 6 encounter with Real Betis saw the latter dominated their matches. fortunately, their current team form manifest a well-oiled machine that is ready to hit and dominate the pitch.
