Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
There will be fireworks when Sevilla and Real Betis face each other at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in the Seville derby. Eduardo Berizzo’s men have been having their ups and downs in the 2017/2018 La Liga campaign, but they are still in the race for a place in the Champions League. Los Sevillanos aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in all competitions and we predict they will go all guns blazing at their bitter local rivals in Saturday’s football match. Real Betis, on the other hand, made a flying start to the season, but they do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment. Los Beticos suffered four defeats in previous five league fixtures and that is probably the main reason why we are positive the hosts will emerge triumphant in the local derby. The visitors will be without Jordi Amat (suspension), whilst midfield Guido Pizarro is banned for the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Nolito):
Widely known as Nolito, Miguel Agudo Duran is a Spanish forward born on 15 October 1986 in Sanlucar de Barrameda, who has had an unconventional path to stardom. The highly rated footballer did not go through Barcelona’s famous La Masia youth academy, but he rather joined the B side in 2008 and went on to show a great deal of potential. Nolito also made a couple of performances for the senior side, but ultimately left for Benfica in an attempt to secure regular playing time. That proved an excellent decision as the winger produced some scintillating showings at Estadio da Luz, and following a loan spell with Granada, he returned to La Liga to sign for Celta Vigo. During his time at Balaidos, Nolito developed into one of league’s leading footballers, usually playing on the left wing and wreaking havoc after cutting inside. The experienced footballer scored almost 40 league goals in first 100 appearances for the Sky Blues, while also breaking into the Spain national team, and despite making his La Furia Roja debut at the age of 28, he quickly became an important player for the side.
