"Where's our bonus"? was just one of the songs sung by Real Betis players in the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán dressing room after the visitors had beaten Sevilla 3-5 in #ElGranDerby. The promised sum of €250.000 for the squad per goal difference over Montella's men sees the entire squad pocket a total of €500,000 which equates to a total of twenty thousand euro per player.
Additional derby motivational bonuses were a common practice from the Manuel Ruiz de Lopera era at the Heliopolis based club. Betis have only won eight Seville derbies at the Sanchez Pizjuan with the game on Saturday making history books being the first time Betis have put five goals past their neighbours at the Nervion ground.
Saturday's win eases any relegation worries that may have haunted Betis with Setien's side now nine points above the relegation places as they now prepare to face Leganes in the final game of the first round of 2017/18 season fixtures.
