Betis was eliminated from both the Europa League and Copa del Ray in just a couple of days, so all what was left to them is the Spanish championship. They weren’t favourites against Valencia in the Spanish Cup but many expected that will be able to eliminate Rennes from the Europa League. Betis played too many matches in short period of time and that cost them valuable points in La Liga. They lost mostly at home; Getafe won them two rounds ago but they compensated that in the previous round when they won Celta in Vigo. Francis is injured and Tello will replace him, which will be most probably the only change in the starting line-up compared to the previous match.
Probable lineups Betis Sevilla: Pau Lopez – Mandi, Bartra, Sidnei – Tello, Lo Celso, W. Carvalho, Guardado – Canales, Jese, Joaquin
Barcelona has full control over the season and all titles are still available. Two Spanish ones are very close given they have seven points more than unconvincing Atletico, while Real Madrid has been eliminated from the title race after victory in Madrid. Their rival in the final of Copa del Rey is Valenica that is not an easy opponent but Barcelona is anyway a favourite to win. The Champions League is the biggest challenge. They routinely dispatched Lyon, which they demolished at the Camp Nou by 5-1. Compared to that team Semedo and Umtiti will join the defence now, while Vidal probably goes to midfield.
Probable lineups FC Barcelona: ter Stegen – Semedo, Pique, Umtiti, J. Alba – Busquets, Vidal, Rakitic – Messi, L. Suarez, Coutinho
Betis Sevilla vs FC Barcelona PICK
Betis is not in particularly good shape but when Barcelona is their guest they don’t need a special motive and we expect to play bravely. Barcelona wants to revenge for home defeat and this could easily turn into a great match with goals on both sides of the pitch.
Pick: both teams to score
Odds: 1.61 at bet365 (down to 1.56 can be played)
