The last phase of European club football is in action where every club is trying to give their best shot to reach the best possible position in their respective league.
La Liga will be in the spotlight as the league leaders face Real Betis. There is a huge point difference between the two teams, but it can be officially said that both teams have played some quality football this year.
The La Liga leaders, Barcelona, are enjoying their time in Spanish club football. Xavi and his boys have revived the team’s future and Barcelona has bounced back positively in the ongoing season.
Real Betis is currently in the fifth position in the La Liga point table. In the remaining days, they will be eying to reach the Champions League spot at least.
We expect Barcelona to win the match to increase the lead in La Liga.
The betting tip is...
Robert Lewandowski will score a goal.
Barca has done exceptionally well in the La Liga 2022-23 season. They have come out as a stronger team in Spanish club football. However, the team has completely failed to impress in the Champions League, Europa League and other domestic tournaments.
This can be taken positively as well as now they are just left to focus on the remaining matches of La Liga.
Ousmane Dembele is still out of action because of his failure to recover from injury.
Predicted Lineup: Ter Stegen; Kounde, Araujo, Alonso, Balde; Gavi, Kessie, De Jong; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Torres
Los Verdiblancos have displayed inconsistency in the current season of La Liga. In the past two seasons they have finished at the fifth spot in the league and this year they are expected to get the same results.
In the last game, Real Betis witnessed a draw against Real Sociedad and hence the visitors will be under pressure to score a win against Barcelona on Saturday.
Juanmi Jimenez is sidelined because of his ankle injury.
Predicted Lineup: Silva; Sabaly, Pezzella, Felipe, Moreno; Rodriguez, Guardado; Henrique, Carvalho, Rodri; Iglesias
Barcelona has come out as a stronger team at their home venue. It will be a difficult game for Real Betis and we predict a win for Barca by a small margin.
