Arguably, the highlight of the recent La Liga fixtures will be the clash in Seville on Sunday evening, where Real Betis is set to host Barcelona in what promises to be a captivating match.
As it stands, Real Betis holds the seventh position in the La Liga standings, securing 31 points from their initial 20 matches of the season. Meanwhile, Barcelona occupies the fourth spot, trailing the league leaders Girona by eight points but with a game in hand.
Real Betis approaches this weekend’s game following a significant 1-0 triumph over Granada in the previous La Liga fixture, with Isco scoring the lone goal in the 76th minute. This victory marked their first in Spain’s top flight since the conclusion of November, as they had been involved in several draws in recent weeks. Nevertheless, Manuel Pellegrini’s squad has proven resilient, suffering only one defeat in their last 15 league matches, extending back to the middle of September.
