This match will be held as

Barcelona

are 10 points behind

Atletico Madrid

and 3 points behind

Real Madrid

, while

Sevilla

are just one point behind in fourth place.

Despite this difference in points,

Ronald Koeman

has recently seen success in their fortunes. They have formed a strong league form, with five wins and are preparing to beat Granda in a thrilling

Copa del Rey

semi-final.

Betis

are in the same spot in many ways, and despite a poor start to the season, they are now doing well in

La Liga

, reaching the Coppa quarter-finals. Their loss to

Atletico Bilbao

on penalties was not pleasant

,

but 

Manuel Pellegrini

's

sights have shifted firmly to securing European qualification.

Pellegrini said

: "Without a doubt, it's a personal target and a personal requirement, I came to Betis for a sporting challenge and knowing the reality of the club, knowing it wasn't going to be easy,

"But personally, I always try to demand the maximum. I'm ambitious and I think we can do it, and that's what I've conveyed to the players and luckily, it's been well-received.

"We're going to try. We were very competitive in the Copa, and now we're going to continue in that vein in La Liga, where we've performed well for these last ten games. We're going to try to finish the season like that. That challenge, to meet the spirit of the Betico and the history of the club, can never be put aside, and I have the ambition to be the one to achieve it."
