Take a look at the latest team performance and availability news from Betis and Barcelona:

Real Betis Form and Team News

Winning the Copa Del Rey title will be the highpoint of Real Betis’s season, but securing a Champions League place will also feel like a win for this Sevilla team. The latter outcome is unlikely, as a three-match winless run has seen Manuel Pellegrini’s men remain six points behind third-placed Sevilla.

Real Betis have failed to score in three consecutive La Liga matches, their worst run since 2016, and are yet to win at home against Barcelona in La Liga since March 2008. They have also never completed the league double over their visitors. With such grim statistics looking them in the face, they have to perform a truly remarkable performance to salvage anything from this match.

Real Betis have Martin Montoya, William Carvalho, Marc Bartra, and Victor Camarasa on the sidelines due to injuries, and they will not feature in Barcelona’s visit.

Barcelona Form and Team News

Barcelona’s season seems to have ended early, and the Blaugrana will go trophyless, with a Champions League berth the only thing they stand to celebrate. Their fortunes have improved under Xavi, but a run of two wins and three losses in their last five matches shows a dearth of confidence in their ranks.

They have five straight wins on the bounce away from home and remain the league’s second-best performing side away from home. Needing only a win to seal their place in the Champions League next season, and with 50 million Euros at stake, Xavi’s men will be motivated to get the job done in Sevilla.

Barcelona have a string of absences with Martin Braithwaite and Oscar Mingueza down with illnesses, Sergino Dest, Gerard Pique, Pedri, and Nico all injured, and Sergi Roberto lacking match fitness.
