Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
There will be fireworks when two fierce local rivals Sevilla and Real Betis take on each other in the Seville derby. Jorge Sampaoli’s troops are unbeaten in the new La Liga campaign and they head into the local derby following a 1-1 draw with Eibar. Sevilla are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but beating los Beticos is easier said than done. Real Betis did well to beat Valencia at Estadio de Mestalla in their last away game in La Liga and they played out a 2-2 draw with Granada in front of home fans at the weekend. Both Sevilla and Real Betis are likely to go for a win in Tuesday’s football clash and we predict that over 2.5 goals will be scored in the Seville derby. In previous two meetings between the two teams in all competitions six goals have been netted.
