Hector Bellerin scores horror own goal as Real Betis lose Sevilla derby 2-0

Arsenal loanee Hector Bellerin scored a nightmarish own goal in Real Betis' 2-0 derby day defeat to Sevilla.

The two La Liga sides faced off on Sunday in what is one of La Liga's fiercest rivalries.

Visitors Sevilla had already taken a one-nil lead in the contest and time was running out for Bellerin's side to get back into the game.

But hopes of a comeback were all but vanquished when the Gunners defender turned the ball into his own net in horrendous fashion.

A cross from the right was fizzed into the Betis box and avoided everyone in the middle.

As it bounced towards the back post Bellerin was stuck with nowhere to go and the ball struck his leg.

Such was the pace on the cross that it flew past former Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and into the back of the net.

It was a bad day all round for Bellerin as he had also had a goal at the right end of the pitch disallowed earlier in the match.

What's the best own goal of all time? Let us know in the comments section.

The right-back has scored just the solitary own-goal for Arsenal in his 183 Premier League appearances to date.

In contrast, it has taken him just seven league matches for him to match the stat for Betis.

The Spaniard has been in and out of their team since joining on Transfer Deadline Day.

He took a pay cut to facilitate the move and is now into the final two years of his contract with the north London club.

On his future he told EIDesmarque: "I don’t know, but I’ve always said if I didn’t want to be here next season, I wouldn’t have come from the beginning.

“There are many things to be decided but what I want to do is enjoy this season that I am here. And what has to happen will happen.”

Despite the loss, Betis sit fifth in the La Liga table, while Sevilla are flying high in third place.
