THE TEAM NEWS

SEVILLA

  • Sevilla return to action hoping they can pick up where they left off as they were in good form prior to the break in play and they face their city rivals determined to hold on to third place in La Liga.
  • They will be without Gudelj who misses out through suspension and Ocampos is expected to miss the game through injury but the break in play has enabled the likes of Fernando to get back to full fitness.
  • Nolito and Munir are vying with En-Nesyri for the vacancy left by the injury to Ocampos but it is unlikely boss Julen Lopetegui will make any alterations from what is arguably his strongest side on paper for this derby match.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Vaclik; Jesus Navas, Kounde, Diego Carlos, Reguilon; Joan Jordan, Fernando, Banega; Suso, De Jong, En-Nesyri

Unavailable: Gudelj (Suspended), Ocampos (Injured)

Doubtful:

REAL BETIS

  • Betis pulled off an outstanding 2-1 home win over Real Madrid which snapped a six-game winless run in the league and means they resume action with plenty of breathing space in mid-table away from the drop zone.
  • Rubi has virtually a fully-fit squad at his disposal other than back-up striker Juanmi who is ruled out long term and while Joaquin and William are not quite at 100%, the duo will come into the reckoning for this game.
  • There are plenty of options to choose from for this game but Rubi may well be tempted to name the same XI that played so well against Real Madrid despite that match being over three months ago now.

Predicted line-up (4-4-1-1): Joel Robles; Emerson, Bartra, Sidnei, Alex Moreno; Joaquin, Edgar Gonzalez, Guardado, Canales; Fekir; Loren Moron

Unavailable: Juanmi (Injured)

Doubtful: Joaquin (Individual training), William (Individual training)

THE PREDICTION

The Spanish Primera restarts with a Seville derby and while it will be played behind closed doors, the intensity is sure to be high. Betis will relish the opportunity to upset their rivals and they will carry some confidence from their win over Real Madrid in the last match they played three months ago. After three months without a game, that may be something of a leveller which could work into Betis’ favour and they may be worth considering on the handicap in a match which is unlikely to contain many goals.
