Team News: Sevilla
Sergio Ramos (Leg injury), Marcão (Muscle injury), Marcos Acuña (Achilles tendon contusion) and Ørjan Nyland (Hip problems) won’t be able to feature for Sevilla gaffer Diego Alonso.
We are thinking that Sevillistas will possibly employ a 4-2-3-1 system for the game with Marko Dmitrovic, Jesus Navas, Loic Bade, Nemanja Gudelj, Adria Pedrosa, Joan Jordan, Ivan Rakitic, Dodi Lukebakio, Oliver Torres, Lucas Ocampos and Mariano Diaz.
Team News: Real Betis
Real Betis boss Manuel Pellegrini has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Nabil Fekir (Knee injury), Marc Bartra (Achilles tendon surgery) and Youssouf Sabaly (Muscle injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
From our viewpoint, Béticos could decide to utilise a 4-2-3-1 formation using Francisco Vieites, Hector Bellerin, German Pezzella, Chadi Riad, Juan Miranda, Guido Rodriguez, Marc Roca, Assane Diao, Isco, Ayoze Perez and Willian Jose.
We feel that Real Betis have enough to score a goal against this Sevilla outfit, however it may not be enough to avoid defeat.
We’re going for both teams to score in a 2-1 advantage for Sevilla when all is said and done. Looking forward to this.
