La Liga will be renewed on June 12! The restart of the tournament will start with one of the most interesting derbies in Europe, Seville’s historic derby .
El Gran Derbi (Great Derby), as it is called in Spain, will be very strange to watch without spectators. Derby has had a head start since 1915, and the very first match was amazing, it was won by Sevilla 4: 3.
This season, the teams of Julen Lopetegui and Ruby have to fight for different goals – Sevilla is third with 47 points, and the ultimate goal of the Andalusian club will be to maintain this place. In principle, Sevilla will not refuse to the fourth place and travel to the Champions League.
Sevilla’s southern neighbor Real Betis is 14 points and nine places behind. Betis will probably easily keep its place in the Premier League, but will not be able to fight for a European Cups trip. However, Betis defeated Real Madrid 2: 1. That is why Barcelona is at the top of the list for three months and not the “Royal Club.” Sevilla also played for the Madrid club in the last round, playing an honorable 2: 2 at Wanda.
After disqualification, Oliver Torres and Fernando return to Lopetegui’s team. Instead, Nemanja Gudelj is disqualified. Lucas Ocampos has a minor injury, and he may lose his place in the starting lineup.
Ruby is missing only two players – injured Juanma and Xavi Garcia. It is difficult to guess who will play in the position of center forward – Loren Moron or Borja Iglesias. Loren has just extended his contract with the club.
