Team News

  • It's been a dramatic drop in form for Betis, the defeat at Espanyol the latest in a string of setbacks.
  • Rubén Pérez is added to the long list of injury problems, though Álex Pozuelo and Rubén Castro are nearing full fitness.
  • Centre-back Paulao is suspended, with Damien Perquis the likely replacement after moving ahead of Mario in the pecking order.
  • Javier Saviola scored the only goal as they beat Athletic Bilbao at home last weekend.
  • The trip to Porto was disappointing, but the club are still very much in this season's Champions League.
  • Only Eliseu is out injured, so it should be a similar selection to the one that played in Portugal, with Saviola taking the place of Roque Santa Cruz.

Prediction

  • Betis are short of the midas touch in front of goal, having not scored for 448 minutes of game time.
  • Los Beticos has picked up just the two points from the last 12 available in La Liga, making this Andalusian derby all the more important.
  • Winger Joaquin has promised that his side won't forget the league, the winger returns to the club where he made his name.
