Real Betis vs Sevilla Preview
Real Betis are currently in fourth place in the La Liga standings and have been fairly impressive this season. The hosts eased past HJK by a comfortable 3-0 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this weekend.
Sevilla, on the other hand, are in 18th place in the league table at the moment and have been shockingly poor so far this season. The away side slumped to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester City this week and will need to bounce back in this fixture.
