Barcelona vs Real Betis Predictions

  • Matches at Camp Nou this season are averaging three goals
  • There have been 3+ goals in Betis’ last four away matches
  • The last seven clashes between these two sides have contained at least three goals

Xavi’s Strong Start

Barcelona have picked up two victories and a draw since Xavi’s return to Camp Nou, and despite Real Betis’ recent winning record, I fully expect them to continue that form in this clash.

They are a free-scoring side, netting 16 times in eight home matches (and conceding a further eight), with five of their fixtures on home soil including at least three goals.

The defence has tightened up under Xavi, but the attack is still on fire, with two late goals ensuring a 3-1 success over the usually frugal Villarreal defence in their last outing.

At least three goals looks a good value bet here, especially as Betis themselves are no strangers to the scoresheet.

Betis’ Form Misleading?

Real Betis are on a run of four successive wins, but it is important to note that two of those victories came in cup competitions against lesser fancied sides, with the other two against struggling Levante and Elche.

They have picked up 13 points from seven away league games, but in their three fixtures against teams in the top 12 positions in La Liga, they have lost twice and picked up a sole victory at Villarreal.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side sit in fifth place in the table, but when making the step up to face higher quality opposition, they have often struggled.

What goes in their favour is a strong attack who have scored twelve goals in those four successive wins, but I expect Barcelona to be too strong, picking up a 3-1 victory.
