Betis-ValenciaSeville, 03 Oct 2004
League leader Valencia was in town to take on local team Real Betis Balompie on Sunday. Going to the home match is a bi-weekly ritual for some, including grabbing a quick bite to eat at a food stand, a little crowd watching, buying pipas (sunflower seeds), and taking in the game for a few hours. The final result: Betis 1, Valencia 1.
Food stands, found around the stadium, offer a quick meal and refreshments.
If you want to show some team spirit you can always find something at the stadium.
