Betis – Barcelona : Preview & Prediction
Will Betis Sevilla slow down the beautiful comeback of FC Barcelona this weekend ?. The Andalusians can create this sensation, they who are undefeated in 2021, but they come out of three hesitant performances with 1 draw at Real Sociedad (2-2), 1 difficult qualification in the Round of 16 of the Cup du Roi against Real Sociedad (3-1 ap) at home and 1 narrow victory over Osasuna (1-0) at home on Monday. Defeated in Benito Villamarin against Real Madrid, Real Sociedad and Eibar, Real Betis could fail a 4th time against Lionel Messi and his partners. The Blaugranas are irresistible at the moment since they are on an excellent dynamic of 5 wins in a row in La Liga in Huesca (1-0), in Bilbao (3-2), in Granada (4-0), in Elche (2 -0) and against Athletic Bilbao (2-1) last weekend. Also qualified for the 1/4 final of the Copa del Rey after its success in Vallecano (2-1) on January 27, the Catalan club will want to keep this dynamic and this state of mind in Andalusia to win 3 new points and reduce this gap by 10 points on the leader, Atlético Madrid.
