La Liga: Sevilla win over Betis in the ‘Great Derby’

Sevilla continued their impressive start to the 2021/22 La Liga campaign as they claimed a win over Real Betis with 2-0 match results at Estadio Benito Villamarin. The extra energy didn’t appear to inspire either team’s attacking quality, although the game was fast-paced, as no ‘big chances’ were created by either team within the first 37 minutes of the football match.

Just 10 minutes before the break time whistle Betis managed to open the score when Hector Bellerin was played in behind and slotted the ball into the back of the net. However, it was ruled out due to offside moments later and the match remained level. Just ten minutes into the second half the visitors were able to take advantage of their numerical superiority when Marcos Acuna unleashed a rocket from his left foot into the upper-left corner of the net to finally break the deadlock.

The game was then put to bed with ten minutes remaining on the clock when a Gonzalo Montiel cross ricocheted off of Bellerin’s knee and into the back of his own net, dashing any hopes of a Betis turnaround. The ‘Great Derby’ victory extends Sevilla’s run of sparkling form against their cross-city rivals, avoiding defeat in 11 of their last 12 away matches against Betis.

To compound their joy, ‘Los Rojiblancos’ ended a three game home win streak Betis, ensuring they would not win four in a row for the first time since 2018. From the first 12 matches, Sevilla has now collected 27 points – the second-best tally in club history – placing third in the standings, behind only Real Madrid and Real Sociedad.
