Barcelona vs Real Betis
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona).
The problems of Barcelona seems to be increasing day by day. They have disposed of Philipe Coutinho, Malcom was transferred to Zenit Petersburg, Luis Suarez is injured, so is Ousmane Dembele, and Neymar Jr’s transfer rumors have remained just as news fodder. But still, Cules have light at the end of the tunnel – their talisman Lionel Messi is returning after his injury stint.
The team needs to put on a great show, and they are desperate. They have lost their opener, and there simply is no way they could stay winless for their opening two games. And this one is at Camp Nou nonetheless.
By all means, expect the players to come out on the pitch with intent.
More than the need of the hour, a home win holds another meaning too. Real Betis had dismantled Barca at this same venue the last time they made a visit here and registered four goals in the process as well.
Coming to the visitors’ league campaign, they too have begun with a defeat, and that too at home, by Valladolid of all squads.

Barcelona vs Real Betis Prediction
Now, more than ever, we can count on Barcelona to bounce back. The return of Messi will really boost the confidence of the team, and they are in dire need of a win.
Moreover, they have always been the dominant side against this opponent. They have scored three or more goals in the last three h2h clashes in a row and registered 18 of the previous 22 wins too. In addition, they recorded 15 of the previous 16 such wins at this venue and scored an impressive three or more goals in 15 of the former 18 battles at the Camp Nou.
Furthermore, Betis has lost seven of their last eleven away ties and failed to score in two of their last three matches on the road as well.
With the support of stats, and the sheer belief in Barca to get back to winning ways, backing them seems the obvious choice.
