Real Betis and Sevilla have shared the spoils with an entertaining 1-1 draw in the Seville derby.

Alvaro Negredo had two early opportunities for the visitors, but he was foiled both times by Casto Barriga in the Betis goal.

There was nothing Barriga could do for Sevilla's opener as Benat Exteberria curled his free kick into the top corner on 25 minutes.

The goalkeeper continued to frustrate the opposition as Frederico Fazio saw his header tipped over the bar.

Sevilla drew level against the run of play five minutes before half time when Negredo rose unmarked to plant his header in the net from Jesus Navas' cross.

Jefferson Montero blasted a chance over the bar for Betis early in the second half, before Jose Canas scooped his shot wide from a corner.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men with 20 minutes to play as Fazio was dismissed for an innocuous-looking obstruction on Roque Santa Cruz.

Exteberria nearly gave Sevilla the lead in the final 10 minutes, but he flashed his shot the wrong side of the post.
