Betis had an opportunity to get close to the Champions League zone in the last round. They needed an away win against Getafe. But Pellegrini’s charges failed to do so. They drew 0-0 with their opponents.
In the last 3 rounds, the Greens have no wins – 2 draws and 1 defeat. They are 5th in the standings with 58 points. The gap to fourth-placed Atlético Madrid is 3 points. Chances for a place in the Champions League zone remain, but to do so they need to avoid losses in the remaining 4 meetings.
Betis’ last home game ended in a sensational 0-1 loss to Elche. The team’s overall home statistics in the current La Liga draw are pretty impressive: 9 wins, 2 draws and 6 defeats. 31 goals scored and 20 conceded.
In the last round, Barcelona had some problems beating Mallorca 2-1. That win allowed them to hold on to 2nd place (66 points). The gap from 2nd place Sevilla is 2 points.
In the last 4 games, the Blues have not been particularly consistent: 2 wins and 2 defeats. Remarkably, both defeats were recorded at home. And this despite the fact that the Catalans have historically performed better on home soil. This season, they have scored 35 points at the Camp Nou and 31 away goals. All the away results for Xavi’s charges are as follows: 8 victories, 7 draws, with 2 losses. 29 goals scored, and 18 conceded. The Catalans have not lost a single game in the last 13 games on foreign soil.
Statistics of head-to-head encounters

In the last 8 meetings at the Benito Villamarin, 7 of the 8 games between the teams have since ended in victories for Barcelona.
Of the last 15 games played in Andalusia, 13 of them have ended in a two-goal, two-goal affair.
The last time Betis were stronger than Barcelona at home was back in 2008.
Prediction and bet for the match Real Betis – Barcelona. Outcome with cf. 1,55
Betis is having a good season. The team demonstrated its strength when it won the Spanish Cup. In the Primera, Pelegrini’s charges also perform at a decent level. So far, they have a realistic chance of finishing in 4th position. I cannot fail to mention that the Andalusians are productive on home soil, scoring 31 goals in 17 games.
Barcelona have been performing well on the road in recent times. Now, the Catalans must not lose points because Sevilla can find themselves in the 2nd position. Xavi’s side need only a win.
My prediction is “both to score – yes”.
