Sevilla's Lucas Ocampos made a mockery of social distancing guidelines vs Real Betis

Lucas Ocampos was sporting a face mask on the sidelines

La Liga returned to television screens last night with a throughly enjoyable edition of the Seville derby.

Sevilla took all three points from their bitter city rivals Real Betis in 'El Gran Derbi', with Lucas Ocampos and Fernando scoring two goals in the space of five second-half minutes.

The win for Sevilla pushes them into third-place and Julen Lopetegui's side look well poised to qualify for next season's Champions League.

As for the game itself in an empty Ramon Sanchez-Pijuan, the home side were deserved 2-0 winners against a pretty lacklustre Betis side.

Ocampos was the star of the show, converting from the spot to open the scoring before contributing with the assist for Fernando's strike.

But at full-time, the Argentine forward caused a bit of a stir with his celebration.

Cameras picked up the former Marseille man throwing his face mask to the ground before jumping on the back of a teammate.

You can watch the footage for yourself below.

He really made a mockery of the social distancing guidelines being implemented across European football in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The celebration itself can almost be forgiven after such a crucial derby win, but hurling the face mask to the floor is a reckless image to be broadcast around the world.

Hopefully Ocampos recognises his wrong-doings ahead of Sevilla's next game away at Levante on Monday.

The Argentine did at least do all the right things on the pitch, with his back-heel assist for Fernando's goal a thing of beauty.

Imagine having the skill to pull that off from a corner!

The Seville derby also saw the introduction of virtual crowd imaging and the use of crowd noises from EA Sports' FIFA series on live broadcast.

It's going to take some getting used to, that's for sure.
