Sergio Canales levelled the derby for Betis from the spot and they could have made it 2 with another penalty.
However, Pellegrini decided to change the penalty taker, it was Nabil Fekir and Yassine Bonou saved.
Betis ended up leaving the Seville derby by letting their rivals off. And no wonder, because they missed a penalty that would have won them the game.
Suso put Sevilla in front just after the second half started. But in a matter of minutes, Betis managed to level thanks to a penalty that Sergio Canales scored. He was having a good game and didn’t hesitate against Bono to level.
That was in the 53rd minute and in the 75th a golden chance came with another penalty, but this time Nabil Fekir hit it and not Canales, who had already scored the first. And Betis did the passage of play badly.
Yassine Bonou guessed the intentions of the Frenchman, he hit the shot badly and Fekir couldn’t score the rebound. A decision, changing penalty takers, that has earned Pellegrini criticism from the Betis fans.
In the press conference, the manager justified it by assuring that Canales was too tired to hit it and that Fekir was scheduled to take a second penalty if there was one.
