In the resumption of the match on Sunday from the 39th minute, it was Betis who witnessed the goal again, with a goal by Sergio Canales in the 73rd minute, a sufficient entry for Verdeblancos to skip the round.

The match was planned as a final between the two eternal opponents, given that one of them is excluded for one match, one of them will be excluded from the tournament, and also came two months later and a week ago Seville won 0-2 at the same stage in the La Liga match.

The second half started with a home and away match, with a balance of power and Seville won with integer numbers with the presence of Acuña, in which Mexican Jesus “Tecateto” Corona played his first minutes in Spanish football when he replaced him. Striker Rafa Mera.

The match passed without great chances to score in the two areas, but in a quick local exit the ball came from the right side to Sergio Canales, after a pass from the Portuguese William Carvalho, and penetrated deep until he hit a difficult shot that reached it.
