Betis take on the visitors Barcelona in the round 35 match of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Saturday, May 7th at Estadio Benito Villamarín (Sevilla).
Betis looked very good this season. But they did not achieve everything he could. In the Europa League they knocked out Zenit in the first round of the playoffs, and, losing at home, they were able to score in the last attack in Frankfurt am Main to Eintracht – but they did not reach the penalty shootout in Germany due to own goal before the final whistle. In many ways, this was compensated in the Cope del Rey – having beaten Valencia on 11-meter, the team in Seville took the first serious trophy in more than a decade and a half. On Sunday, the wards of Diego Simeone have a Madrid derby, and theoretically Betis can catch up in top-4 – there are just 3 points between the clubs.

Barcelona scored only 1 goal in 3 rounds of La Liga, against Real Sociedad, against whom they won. Before that, there were unexpected 0-1 with Cadiz at home, at the Camp Nou, then the same scenario was even with the crisis year of Rayo Vallecano in 2022. Only in May, with Mallorca, it was possible to achieve victory. And then, after the goals of Depay and Busquets, the Kules were conceded in the 79th minute, and the last quarter of an hour was rather unpleasant, nervous for Xavi’s wards. On the other hand, 4 rounds before the finish line, the gap from Betis, which is 5th, is 8 points, and if you don’t lose at least now, you can secure a finish in the quartet of leaders and a pass to the Champions League.
Barcelona have had 5 head-to-head wins in a row. But in December, due to the only goal of Juanmi, Betis was able to take the victory at the Camp Nou. Betis will not be able to use Montoya, Bartru, Camarasa and William Carvalho due to injuries. Barcelona are left without Nico, Pedri and Serginho Dest, Mingesa and Brathwaite are sick, and the coaches still have questions about Sergi Roberto’s form. Both teams, with a high place in the table, do not shine in recent weeks – we recommend betting on a total of less than 3.0 goals
