Real Betis welcome Barcelona to Benito Villamarin on Sunday night in La Liga, in what is expected to be a keenly contested battle.
The reverse fixture this season saw the Catalans annihilate Real Betis at the Olympic Stadium in a 5-0 win and Manuel Pellegrini’s side will look to turn the tides in their favour this time around.
The hosts managed to dispatch Granada in a 1-0 result last weekend in La Liga and sit in ninth place in the standings and a win would move them to seventh.
Following their 4-1 demolishing by Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup final, Barcelona however bounced back to winning ways with a victory over Unionistas in the Copa Del Rey in midweek and will be confident moving into this clash.
Moreover, the Catalans are unbeaten in their last five matches against Balompe, winning all five games in the period.
With numerous injuries afforded Manuel Pellegrini’s side, Assane Diao and Pablo Busto are expected to be handed a start in this game.
Meanwhile, Robert Lewandowski is expected to return to the starting XI after coming off the bench in the clash with Unionistas.
The match starts at 5:30 pm.
