Sevilla vs Betis (By: Miyagi)
Sevilla (5th) will host Betis (9th) in the Seville derby today in what is an extremely important game for both sides not only because of their rivalry but also for the European tickets/ qualification.
Sevilla (49pts) will take Getafe's (50pts) 4th spot with a win today, at least temporarily, while Betis can climb up to the 6th place, only 4 points below the CL qualification places with the win today.
There is suspense and excitement ahead of this game and the fans have already shown their intentions as 15.000 of them showed up in Sevilla's training session today, so, its fair to expect a packed stadium with an electrifying atmosphere. Usually, that leads to bookings as players get more passionate and more involved, at least emotionally, with rushed decisions, lots of fighting, etc. thus, going for the cards here makes sense.
Sevilla ranks 4th in total cards received in La Liga so far with 89y and 4red while Betis has 70y and 1r. In their first meeting of the season for the league with Betis as hosts, there was a total of 8y and 1red card even though that game was back in September.
Hernandez Hernandez will be the office today and he is a strict referee as he shows a bit over 6.9 cards per game on average so far and he will probably have a busy night here. This is a high line but i have seen much, much higher ones and in those kinds of games, it only takes one bad challenge to get things out of control for the whole match.
