    Betis arguably have better individual players, but Sevilla are way better as a team. The value of coaching. Lopetegui >> Rubi

  3. 'It is always special'

    Sevilla 2-0 Real Betis

    Lucas Ocampso

    Sevilla matchwinner Lucas Ocampos: "It has been a difficult week, I had a niggle but I knew this game was very important for everybody. It is always special.

    "We controlled the game well after the first goal. We are up there at the top of the table. The replays will show that the referee got it right for the penalty.

    "We feel as if the fans are here, even if they aren't."

  4. Post update

    Marc Bartra, who conceded the penalty for the opening goal, says it was very dubious and he couldn't see a foul...

  5. Post update

    The Sevilla players have all congregated in one corner and are saluting the empty stands...


    Sevilla 2-0 Real Betis

    All very comfortable for the hosts in the end. Lucas Ocampos the main man. Sevilla up to within six points of Real.

  7. Post update

    Sevilla 2-0 Real Betis

    Marc Bartra is now struggling with cramp and might not be able to carry on. We;re into stoppage time now though - almost midnight in Seville.

  8. Post update

    Sevilla 2-0 Real Betis

    He's still got it - lovely ball from Jaoquin to pick out the run of Nabil Fekir but the eventual shot is well blocked.

  9. Post update

    Sevilla 2-0 Real Betis

    The game has gone, petering out now as the fake crowd noise finally finds a decent level in the mix.

  10. Post update

    Sevilla 2-0 Real Betis

    Munir is down hurt for Sevilla, a few playesr have looked leggy in the last few minutes. These lads are out of condition of course, as we enter the final 20 minutes.

  11. Post update

    Sevilla 2-0 Real Betis

    Better from Betis as Emerson skins his man on the right and puts over a lovely cross, it snakes through the area and comes back in, and Borja heads it wide.

    Betis send on mercurial veteran Joaquin, closing in on the 20th anniversary of his debut in the green and white.

  12. Post update

    Sevilla 2-0 Real Betis

    Sevilla are moving to within six points of second-placed Real Madrid in the as it stands table.

  13. GOAL - Sevilla 2-0 Real Betis


    Brilliant again from Lucas Ocampos! Sevilla corner, put in to the near post, Ocampos backheels a flick into the middle and Fernando is there to head home.

    All about the balletic assist that. Sublime touch.

  14. Post update

    Sevilla 1-0 Real Betis

    Betis have just over half an hour to rescue this derby. They've hardly threatened all game so far but are sending on young Mexican Diego Lainez now.

  15. GOAL - Sevilla 1-0 Real Betis

    Lucas Ocampos (Pen)

    It may be nonsense that Lucas Ocampos wears number five, but there is absolutely no nonsense about that spot kick. Fired in to the corner, and that's goals in five straight La Liga games for the Argentine.

  16. PENALTY to Sevilla

    Sevilla 0-0 Real Betis

    Penalty given! Marc Bartra clambers on the back of Luuk de Jong and the referee has no doubts. I've got several, but the spot-kick is given!

  17. Post update

    Sevilla 0-0 Real Betis

    Jesus Navas thinks he is taken out off the ball and wants action, the ref can't see it but as the ball goes out for a corner there's a VAR check.

    No action taken.

  18. CLOSE!

    Sevilla 0-0 Real Betis

    Another fine chance for the hosts! Jesus Navas gets free down the right and cuts it back, Joan Jordan treads on the ball and the chance is gone for him, Munir swivels on it and fires it in but it's an easy save for Joel Robles.

    Another mess of a finish. Rusty business.

  19. KICK-OFF

    Sevilla 0-0 Real Betis

    Under way! Just the one change as Betis bring off Sidnei and send on Zouhair Feddal.
