Team News: Real Betis
Willian José (Torn Muscle Fibre) and Martín Montoya (Achilles tendon problems) are not available for Real Betis manager Manuel Pellegrini.
It’s our opinion that Béticos should kick off with a 4-2-3-1 formation for this game featuring Rui Silva, Hector Bellerin, German Pezzella, Edgar Gonzalez, Alex Moreno, Guido Rodriguez, William Carvalho, Juanmi, Nabil Fekir, Sergio Canales and Borja Iglesias.
Team News: Sevilla
Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui has to currently contend with reduced team options. Erik Lamela (Shoulder Injury) and Suso (Ankle Injury) won’t be making appearances.
We’re of the thinking that Sevillistas might elect for a 4-3-3 system using Alfonso Pastor, Gonzalo Montiel, Jules Kounde, Diego Carlos, Karim Rekik, Joan Jordan, Nemanja Gudelj, Ivan Rakitic, Lucas Ocampos, Rafa Mir and Alejandro Gomez.
In our opinion, Sevilla and Real Betis won’t have much between them here, and goals could be hard to come by.
Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a game with minimal goal-scoring opportunities. We’re therefore expecting a very even match with a 0-0 score after 90 minutes.
