The day is upon us. The La Liga powers that be have made us what a fair while – jornada 16 – but the wait is now over and another derbi sevillano is here and ready to explode.
The last time the great eternal rivals squared off against each other was back in April 2014 where Betis went down 2-0 at home; it was the same season Betis were relegated to la segunda. The teams played each other four times that season, twice in the Copa del Rey, as will happen this season after the CdR last 16 draw on Friday. However, unlike the results in 2013/14, there’s a real opportunity for los verdiblancos to put one over their city rivals who haven’t looked brilliant this season, especially away.
