Betting tips for Betis vs Sevilla 02.09.2018
The first derby of the Andalusian capital of this season 2018-19 in the Benito Villamarín Stadium faces verdiblancos and sevillistas, in match corresponding to the 3rd round of the Santander League.
Real Betis de Quique Setién finished last season in European positions after going through a long journey. Almost equally important, the Verdiblancos were ahead of their eternal rival, Sevilla, closing a course for the memory in which they managed to win at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium to Real Madrid and endorsed 5 goals in the Pizjuán to the sevillistas.
The departures of the goal Antonio Adán (Atlético de Madrid) and the midfielder Fabián (Naples) are the main casualties of a team that has invested very well to reinforce itself with players of proven talent like the Japanese Inui, Sergio Canales, the Portuguese William Carvalho, the international goalkeeper Pau López or the last to arrive, the Brazilian central Sidnei.
In pre-season, the Verdiblancos have won prestigious victories against Olympique Marseille, Bournemouth, Frosinone and UD Las Palmas, which they thrashed 4-0 in the last friendly match. Already in official games, the team lost at home against Levante and did not pass the tie in Vitoria.
El Sevilla starts a new project with Joaquín Caparrós in the sports management and Pablo Machín in the bench. After suffering to obtain a place in the previous phase of the Europa League, the 5 times champion of the second European football competition has started earlier to be prepared not to fail in the previous rounds that will begin in a few days.
With a budget of 205 million, the great goal of the Nervión is to return to play the Champions League next season. To do this, a young trainer like Machin has been signed, signing 2 players (the midfielder Ibrahim Amadou and the goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik) and making effective the purchase option of the Canarian Roque Mesa. In addition, the team has signed Aleix Vidal, from FC Barcelona.
The goal is David Soria, sold to Getafe; the midfielder Guido Pizarro, returned to the Mexican Tigers; and the French center Lenglet, for which Barça has paid 36 million euros. Neither are Miguel Layún (sold by FC Porto to Villarreal), Johannes Geis (returns to Schalke 04) and Spanish international Sandro Ramírez (he returns to Everton, although he probably does not play this year with the Toffees). . In the last hours of the English market, Sergio Rico has left on loan to Fulham. Finally, NZonzi was transferred to AS Roma.
Sevilla have confirmed their place in the Europa League after eliminating Sigma Olomouc on Thursday.
