Seville’s Jesus Navas scored an own goal by Betis 43, while the Argentine coach Jorge Sampoli’s team equaled the Serbian player Nemanja Goodel 81.
Betis is in fourth place with 24 points, with a goal difference from Atletico Madrid, third, while Sevilla is down to 17th place with a score of 11 points.
Seville suffered a painful blow in the 38th minute by sending off Argentine defender Goncalo Montial due to a strong intervention from behind on Alex Moreno.
Sampaoli was forced to remove his striker Rafa Mir to push the veteran defender Jesus Navas, who gave Real Betis the lead by mistake in his team’s goal when his Serbian colleague Nemanja Godeli deflected a ball in front of Sergio Canales and the French-Algerian international Nabil Fekir, hitting the 36-year-old Navas and deceiving his international goalkeeper. Moroccan Yassine Bounou escaped from his hand into the goal (45).
The two teams tied the field on the pitch, with Real Betis midfielder Fakir being sent off for hitting Argentina’s Alejandro “Papu” Gomes (45 + 4) with a strong elbow.

And Bono saved his own goal by blocking Borja Iglesias alone (45 + 9).
Bono continued his brilliance by blocking another single Aitor Roybal from close range and he saved his powerful shot before the defense dispersed it (47).
And the referee declared a third red card in the match and a second for Real Betis by sending off Iglesias due to a strong intervention from behind on Juan Jordan (49).
Godelli made up for his mistake by scoring the equalizer with a powerful shot from a distance that was placed to the right of the Chilean international Claudio Bravo (82).
Godeli almost did it with another shot “on the fly”, this time from outside the area, but it bounced off the crossbar (90).
Bravo continued his brilliance by stopping a powerful shot from Godeli from close range with the final whistle of the match (90 + 5).
