Things happened again in the recent La Liga game against Sevilla. Despite the home advantage, they couldn’t have a chance to beat Sevilla’s goalkeeper and even witnessed an own goal in the 81st minute by Hector Bellerin. The disappointment was sharply expressed on this player’s face after his mistake of breaking his own net. Prior to the “gift” goal for Sevilla, left-back Marcos Acuna put Sevilla ahead with his opening goal in the 55th minute thanks to the assist from Lucas Ocampos.

It seemed to be an unlucky game for Real Betis because they not only did not score any goal in the match, had an own goal, but also lost one player due to a red card booked for Guido Rodriguez in the last minute of the first half.

With only 10 players in the second half, Sevilla took all the advantages to defeat Betis easily with one goal from Marcos Acuna and a sudden own goal from Bellerin.
In the squad comparison, Real Betis and Sevilla both had one time winning the La Liga title, but a long time ago. However, in recent years, Sevilla have performed greatly and are always in the top clubs to go further in other prestigious European competitions like the Champions League or Europa League. Therefore, when comparing Betis and Sevilla in this recent match, most of us can see that Betis were in the underdog situation except for the home advantage, but it eventually couldn’t change the result.
