Barcelona vs Real Betis Betting Tips
Both Barcelona and Real Betis would like to forget the first round of the new La Liga season. Both teams lost their games; Barca to Athletic Bilbao, Betis to Valladolid. Obviously, both of these teams were favorites in those matches, so the fact that they lost is a huge surprise. Barcelona, who are the reigning champions of La Liga are expected to win such games, not lose them. Even a draw in Bilbao would’ve been a disappointment, nonetheless a defeat. And when it comes to Real Betis, they lost to a constant candidate for relegation. And they did it at their home.
It’s obvious that in Sunday’s game Barcelona are the favorites. First of all, the difference in player quality is hugely in favor of Barca. This team is considered to be one of the best (if not the very best) team on the planet. Although their best player, Lionel Messi is struggling with an injury, Barcelona’s squad is full of super-talented players. They’re strong in all areas, which is why this team is still the number 1 favorite for winning another La Liga title. Speaking of titles, Barca is also among the top favorites for winning this season’s Champions League.
When it comes to Real Betis, even though they failed to qualify for one of Europe’s championships last season, they did play very well. Although they did lose a couple of players over the summer, they also brought in a few talented players. Their biggest signing was Nabil Fekir, a former Lyon superstar. He played against Valladolid from the very start but failed to help his team win at least a point. Of course, the defeat was not Fekir’s fault. If there’s someone to blame, it’s their goalie, Robles who got a red card early on in the game.
What this means is that the second-choice goalkeeper will have to be between the posts against Barcelona. And that should make the job of Barcelona’s attackers even easier. The trouble is that Barca will be without a couple of key men, but still, they should be able to score a few times.

Losing to Athletic Bilbao might seem strange at the first look. However, this team is famous as a tough nut to crack, especially when playing at home. Still, a defeat is something Barca players aren’t used to, which is why they’re gonna be very determined to bounce right back with a victory. The trouble is that they’re gonna have to do it without some of their crucial players, namely Messi, Suarez, and Dembele, who are all injured.

Their goalie Robles is the only player who will definitely miss this duel. However, even with their best eleven, this team does not look capable of snatching even a point of Barcelona. They did beat them the last time they played at Camp Nou, but that was their only La Liga win over Barca in this decade.
