Barcelona vs Betis: times, TV and how to watch online
A Barcelona on the rise receives Betis at Camp Nou with Xavi looking to win his third match in the league, while a crucial match awaits in Munich next week.
Barcelona will be looking to win their third LaLiga match in a row with Xavi as manager when they host Real Betis at Camp Nou on Saturday.
The Catalan powerhouses go into the game after defeating Villarreal 1-3 last weekend, while Betis recorded a comfortable 4-0 Copa del Rey win over Alicante.
Xavi has had a positive impact since taking charge of Barcelona last month, with the Spaniard winning two and drawing one of his three matches at the helm, including back-to-back league victories over Espanyol and Villarreal.
With an eye on Munich
Barcelona will have an eye on next week’s crucial Champions League match against Bayern in Germany, as it will be a do or die match in the most important European competition.
The Blaugranes, who were held to a 0-0 draw by Benfica on November 23, will need to beat the Bavarians to make sure they get the ticket to the round of 16. However, if Benfica draw or lose to Dynamo Kyiv at home, Barcelona will go through even losing in Munich.
In the domestic tournament, the Catalan side has won six, drawn five and lost three of their 14 matches this season to collect 23 points, which has left them in seventh position in the standings.
A title challenge seems fairly difficult, as archrivals and current leaders Real Madrid have 13 more points, but Xavi’s men are only five points behind fourth-placed Sevilla.
Barcelona have won each of their last five league games against Betis, including a 5-2 win in the corresponding match at Camp Nou last term.
An in-form Betis want to upset the hosts
Meanwhile, Betis have been victorious in each of their last four matches across all competitions, including a 2-0 success over Ferencvaros in the Europa League last November, which saw them book their spot in the next round of the competition.
Manuel Pellegrini’s squad, which has also won their last two clashes in La Liga, is sitting fifth in the table, just a point behind city neighbors Sevilla.
Los Verdiblancos, who have scored 25 goals in their last 15 matches, finished sixth in La Liga last season and will try to improve that position by getting a top-four finish.
