Ousmane Dembélé returns for Barcelona vs Real Betis: how many games did he miss?

Dembélé’s last appearance came on 28 January away to Girona, a game in which he was forced off in the first half. Barcelona won 1-0 to go six points clear of Los Blancos, who slipped up a day later by drawing at home to Real Sociedad.

In Dembélé's absence, the Catalans have extended their lead to the extent that they had LaLiga all but wrapped up by mid-March, although they have done so by grinding out wins and taking advantage of Madrid’s drop-off in form rather than by blowing the rest of the league away.

Indeed, Barça have won only one of last five fixtures in all competitions and scored just two goals in those matches. Dembélé's return should add extra spark to the forward line.

Betis XI

Borja Iglesias is Betis' main absentee for their LaLiga clash with Barcelona.

Manuel Pellegrini confirmed in his press conference that the Galician player will not be included in the squad for the trip to Camp Nou.

The striker suffered a knock recently and is still not fully recovered. 

The big news is the expected return of Juanmi, who has been out for several games and could even be included in Pellegrini's starting eleven.

Rayo Vallecano vs Barcelona summary: García goal, score, goals, highlights, LaLiga

It was a Vallecas victory for Rayo against Barcelona on Wednesday.

Despite the defeat, the Blaugrana are still 11 points ahead of Real Madrid in second place. 

That gap is expected to be reduced to 8 points for a couple of hours at least as Real Madrid are currently beating Almería at the Bernabéu.

Rayo moved up to 9th place in the table with the win over Xavi's men but suffered a shock 4-0 defeat to Elche earlier today.

Barcelona’s poor recent form

Barça head into Saturday’s clash against Betis on their worst run of form of the season.

They’ve won only one of their last five matches in all competitions, which includes a 4-0 Copa del Rey thrashing by arch-rivals Madrid at Camp Nou. 

In those games, they have scored only two goals (in their last two outings), the last of which wasn’t enough to prevent a defeat to Rayo Vallecano in midweek.
