Fifth ranked Sevilla won 0-2 against city rivals Betis in this week’s mid-day kick off to keep up their push for the last Champions League spot. World Cup referee Velasco Carballo gave the visitors a helping hand though, turning down an early penalty appeal for a foul by Iborra on Leo Baptistao, but then giving one at the other end on the half hour mark and sending off Juan Carlos, even though the wing-back appeared to put in a good tackle on Bacca. Gameiro fired home the resulting spot kick, and only a couple of good saves by Adán stopped Gameiro and Vitolo from adding to the lead after the break. Carballo appeared to have awarded a second penalty when Amaya handled in the area later on, only to change his decision (incorrectly) to offside against Gameiro at the behest of his linesman. Soon afterwards Beto had to be at his best to tip a Rubén Castro free kick over the bar, but with ten minutes to go Gameiro wrapped up what is likely to be the last Sevilla derby for some time, turning in a Diogo Figueiras cross to leave Gabriel Calderón’s team on the verge of relegation.
