Life has re-emerged in La Liga stadiums with the establishment of the Andalusian Derby, which ended with Seville defeating it’s neighbor and rivals Real Betis with two clean goals.

After three months of stoppage due to the Corona pandemic, the Spanish league matches returned behind closed doors, making the League the second major league to return to competition after the German League, awaiting the Premier League and Italian League later this month.

The match started with a minute of silence in remembrance of the victims of the Coruna virus in a country that was among the worst affected by the pandemic, as it recorded more than 27 thousand deaths out of more than 290 thousand cases.

The match was in the 28th stage of the Spanish League, which completes the remaining 11 stages in just six weeks.

Contrary to the surprise he had in his last game before stopping on March 8 when he beat Real Madrid 2-1, Real Betis was unable to match his neighbor, who is competing for the Champions League next season, and lost to him for the third time in a row.

After a first baht run, Seville succeeded in opening the scoring from a penalty caused by Mark Bartra by ousting the Dutch player, Luc de Young, and Argentinian Lucas Ocampus succeeded her in the 56th minute, recording his fifth goal in the last five games, in an achievement that was previously not achieved in the team except Alvaro Negredo 2011.

Soon, coach Julien Lopetegui’s team resolved the match by adding the second goal with a header to Brazilian Fernando after a corner kick in the 62nd minute.

By maintaining his unbeaten record for the fifth game in a row, Seville raised their score to 50 points in third place, four points behind each of Real Sociedad and Getafe, and five points from Atletico Madrid, who were the last team they faced before stopping and ended their meeting in a 2-2 draw.

As for Real Betis, his score was frozen at 33 points, and he became threatened with losing his twelfth position and entering the battle of conflict in order to avoid relegation, as he is currently 8 points ahead of the eighteenth place 10 stages before the end of the season.
