Spanish La Liga
Date: 1 February 2023, Wednesday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin (Sevilla).

Barcelona extended their advantage at the top of La Liga standings to five points thanks to Real Madrid’s slip-up in the goalless draw to Real Sociedad on Sunday evening at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Blaugrana dispatched Girona 0-1 on the road on Saturday to make it 15 wins in 18 league games in this term of La Liga.

It was another strong defensive effort from Xavi’s troops who limited the Catalan rivals to only two attempts on target in the 90 minutes of play at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi.

Barcelona boast by far the best defensive record in the elite class of Spanish football with just 6 goals conceded in 18 outings this season.

Xavi’s squad will continue the push for another La Liga trophy on Wednesday evening when they take on Real Betis in the postponed fixture of Matchday No 17 at Estadio Benito Villamarin.

These two teams locked horns in the Spanish Super Cup semifinal last month on Saudi Arabian soil. Barcelona advanced to the final with a win on penalties after a 2-2 draw in 120 minutes of play at King Abdullah Stadium in Riyadh.

Real Betis should represent a strong challenge to Blaugrana here given they have only lost one league game at home since the start of the season.

Also, Betis limited Getafe to just one shot on goal in a 0-1 victory on Saturday at Coliseum Alfonso Perez.
