Thinking about Sunday’s derby against Betis, Sampaoli fielded a contentious eleven in which he reserved some of his starterslike Gudelj and Lamela, and with unusual wingers like Rafa Mir and Acuña, leaving Papu Gómez as the most advanced man in a block, yes, very withdrawn against a City with unusual players and some youngsters like Lewis and Palmer who carried the weight of the fight from the beginning.

those of Guardiola, however, had problems from the start to penetrate the dense defense raised by Sampaoli. Just a combination of Foden Y Gundogan which ended it slightly against Bono was the only chance for the English, while the Seville He was concerned with counterattacks exploiting the power of Rafa Mir’s legs. He warned with a header and in this way, with his head, he scored a corner that Isco took and found the Murcian unmarked in the defense in the citizen’s area. The Seville he reached the most difficult thing, the progress in the City town, although the bad news is that it was useless.

To make matters worse, Marcao was injured before the break in an action that left him on a tear, exacerbating the defensive woes ahead of the derby and what remains before the World Cup.

And with Gudelj on for the Brazilian, the defense collapsed as City pressed in the second half.

Ruben Dias It was close to 2-1 with a corner to which Bono responded with a save, which he made Julian Alvarez after a pass from DeBruyne in defense is very advanced. The third comes in another gift, a loss of Jose Angel when trying to bargain Julian Alvarez which ends in a shoe Mahrez.

The Sevillewith many problems in the League occupying the relegation positions, sad farewell to the champions and it still does not offer good sensations in a derby so close that the eternal rival is the clear favorite with a difference of 13 points, a situation that has not occurred since the 96-97 season.
