Sevilla and Real Betis star in a scintillating derby this Sunday. As always, this is not just another derby as there are many ingredients in this one. Betis comes into the league with an almost unchanging rhythm, while Sevilla, rather than resurgence, has been revived in the competition with the arrival of fashionable coach, José Luis Mandilibar.
Sevilla, keeping in mind where they have come from this season which is about to end, success grows. His career was not exemplary until April 1 of this year, with the opening date and victory of the mandible era in Cádiz. Until then, Sevilla continued to flirt with the relegation places and their fans were not convinced. However, with the arrival of the Basque coach, he has so far managed to score 19 out of a possible 24 points in the league, blown away historic Manchester United and Juventus in the Europa League and reached the final of the continental competition. dominates like no other. Well, with this credential, he heads into a match against his biggest rival.
Real Betis, the second part of this fantastic show, represents regularity. He has moved to European positions almost throughout the season, including the occasional Champions League field and until recently was within a shot of fourth place. However, he suffered some unexpected arrhythmia and was penalized in qualifying. Still, Pellegrini’s team has never lost its identity, although it has never lacked reasons for its lack of concentration: 13 red cards, the most penalties in the league, and a serious injury to Nabil Fekir, one of its reference players.
And all that is at stake is healthy anger among family, friends, neighbors or co-workers.
