Real Betis fans produce spectacular pre-match display ahead of Seville derby

Real Betis fans produced a stunning pre-match display ahead of the Seville derby at Estadio Benito Villamarín. The game finished 1-1 with Isco scoring for Betis and Kike Salas equalising for Sevilla in the 56th minute.

Real Betis fans cover stadium in green and white

Real Betis fans produced a green and white display that covered the entirety of the Estadio Benito Villamarín. The stadium is split into three sections, and for the match on Sunday, the top and bottom of the sections were full of green pieces of paper, while the middle section was full of white paper.

This led to a colourful display of green and white on all four sides of the arena to resemble the home colours of Real Betis. Fans were also seen in videos posted on social media holding Betis scarves above their heads while chanting in unison with the other 55,000 supporters within the ground.

Pre-match tifo unveiled ahead of Seville derby

Betis fans also unveiled a pre-match tifo ahead of their La Liga match against Sevilla. The tifo depicted children in green and white shirts playing football, along with various historic landmarks and significant figures specific to the city of Seville.

At the top of the large display behind the goal, it read, “Balompie, Essenica, Tradicion, Idiosincrasia Y Sevillania.” This translates to “Football, Scenic, Tradition, Idiosyncrasy and Seville.” The start of each word in Spanish was also highlighted in gold, meaning the five words at the top of the banner spelled out “Betis”.
