Sevilla 3-2 Real Betis

The Ramos Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium was rocking on Saturday as Sevilla took bragging rights at home against city rivals Real Betis.

Munir El Haddadi put Sevilla in the lead in the first half and a pair of goals in a four-minute span from Pablo Sarabia and Franco Vasquez put Sevilla up 3-1 at the time. A late goal from Christian Tello by Betis made for some nervy moments at the end, but Sevilla pulled out the big rivalry win.

Huesca 0-0 Barcelona

First-place Barcelona couldn’t manage a goal in a trip to last-place Huesca. Barcelona fielded almost an entirely second-string side, with Spanish youngsters Carles Alena and Riqui Puig getting starts in central midfield, but it showed that even in La Liga, the worst-place team can still secure a point against Barcelona. The likes of Malcolm, Ousmane Dembele and Arturo Vidal couldn’t find their way through Huesca’s backline.
