La Liga Return: Sevilla open with a 2 nil win against Betis

Players moment of silence before Kick-off

Sevilla triumphed over local rivals Real Betis in La Liga's return match on Thursday night, since the March 2020 postponement over Covid-19.

The match was played behind-closed-doors at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium.

Winger Lucas Ocampos opened the scoring from the penalty spot at the first quarter into the second half, as former Manchester City midfielder Fernando netted the second goal with a close-range header shortly afterwards, putting Sevilla ahead with 2-0 win against the visitors.

On the other hand, Betis struggled to get into the game, with Nabil Fekir and Sergio Canales trying and shooting over from long range.
