Sevilla host bitter city rivals Real Betis in arguably the hottest El Gran Derbi in history.

Make sure you know how to watch a Sevilla vs Real Betis live stream from anywhere in the world.

Those in the UK can tune into La Liga TV for coverage of El Gran Derbi but Australians can watch a Sevilla vs Real Betis free live stream on Kayo Sports. Just make sure to use a VPN if you're an Australian abroad.

The team news is in and Sevilla start with Diego Carlos at centre-back. The Brazilian was a major injury doubt after picking up a muscle problem against Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday night in the Europa League and starts alongside Fernando, who moves from midfield to replace the suspended Jules Kounde. Ivan Rakitic starts in midfield, with captain Jesus Navas at right-back. Youssef En-Nesyri gets the nod up front ahead of top scorer Rafa Mir.

For Betis, Borja Iglesias starts up front, with los Verdiblancos' top scorer Juanmi suspended. Playmaker Nabil Fekir will play just behind Iglesias, with ex-Barcelona winger Cristian Tello getting the nod ahead of club icon Joaquin.

If you thought the Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona was acrimonious, you really need a bit of Sevilla vs Real Betis in El Gran Derbi (the Big Derby) in your life. The last meeting between the sides in last month's Copa del Rey had to be postponed mid-game, and finished the following day, after a missile from the Betis crowd hit Sevilla's Joan Jordan on the head and forced the midfielder to be taken to hospital. There is visceral hatred here.

Second-place Sevilla go into the game six points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid, and are unbeaten in the league since the beginning of December. Julen Lopetegui's side drew 1-1 with Espanyol a week ago but will be without suspended Jules Kounde, who was sent off for hitting out at Javier Puado. They're also likely to miss former Manchester United forward Anthony Martial, who picked up a knee injury last weekend. 

Betis sit five points behind their city rivals in third and are evolving into Spain's most fun team to watch, beating Mallorca 2-1 last weekend. One-time Liverpool target Nabil Fekir and ex-Real Madrid youngster Sergio Canales are their creative stars, with 40-year-old winger Joaquin one of Spanish football's most colorful characters. Ex-Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is in the dugout, with other Premier League representation coming from Arsenal loanee Hector Bellerin.
