Real Betis host city rivals Sevilla this evening at the Estadio Benito Villamarín in the 13th round of La Liga, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.
Manuel Pellegrini is expected to make a couple of changes to the side that beat HJK Helsinki 3-0 in the Europa League. As per usual, Borja Iglesias will more than likely replace Willian José, while Paul Akouokou will probably make way for Guido Rodríguez.
Edgar González is expected to get the nod ahead of Víctor Ruiz and form a part of Los Verdiblancos’ defensive line.
Real Betis will be looking to beat their rivals as they hope to keep their place in the Champions League spots of the league standings.

AS predict that Pellegrini will field the following starting XI against Sevilla: Claudio Bravo – Youssouf Sabaly, Germán Pezzella, Edgar González, Álex Moreno – Luiz Henrique, Guido Rodríguez, Nabil Fekir, William Carvalho, Sergio Canales – Borja Iglesias.
