FC Barcelona vs Real Betis – Match Overview
Last week’s Copa del Rey disappointment was a tough hit for Barcelona as they were the hot favorites going into that fixture. However, despite controlling the entire match, Athletic Club managed to squeeze one goal through the iron defense of the Catalans and registered an upset. The unexpected defeat came in as a huge tide of disappointment for the team.
However, Barcelona must be looking forward to putting this behind them and performing well in the league fixture to continue their struggle for winning the league.
On the other hand, the 13th position Real Betis with 28 points in their 22 fixtures is looking below average as far as their ability is concerned.

The former league leaders and defending champions Barcelona are up against thirteenth-ranked Real Betis in a prominent La Liga fixture. With immense tension on the top of the table, the Catalans must be itching to get this win and continue their struggle for the top spot. Currently, Real Madrid is ahead with a 6 point advantage.
This match won’t be as easy for Barcelona as they are coming in after a dramatic defeat against Athletic Bilbao in the Cup fixture.
Although Real Betis is a fairly competitive team in the Spanish league, its performance in this season has been a sheer disappointment. Moreover, it needs massive improvement as long as the team hopes for a reputable league ranking by the end of the season.
To sum it up, the fixture will be a mixture of emotions from both sides but Barcelona is likely to come out as victorious after the disheartening defeat last weekend.
