Real Betis vs. Barcelona: Head-To-Head

Real Betis are yet to claim a victory over Barcelona since the 2001/2002 season. The Beticos in recent years have lost in 5 straight league games with the defending champions between December 2012 and December 2015.

In the last 10 meeting between them, Barcelona has 7 victories compared to Real Betis 2, and one of the clash ended in a 2-2 draw

Real Betis vs. Barcelona: Prediction

Barcelona experience a torrid time few weeks ago, which saw them squandered a 9 point lead within a span of 3 games. This clash is a must win one for the defending champions to finish the season with a major tittle. However Gerard Pique believes that it will be a major failure if they don’t win La Liga this season.

Real Betis have gathered a total of 21 points in their 17 games at home so far this season, with 10 of this points coming from their last 5 home games. This shows an improved performance at home, which could pose a dangerous threat to the visiting boys.

However, with the scoring prowess of Barcelona in recent games, I predict the maximum point for the table topper, with a slim chance of a Betis draw.
