The Catalan giants hold a stunning record against Betis and they would look to take advantage of it.

Barca will be facing Bayern Munich in a do or die contest in the Champions League next and they would be hoping for three points against Betis to gain enough momentum.

Ansu Fati has returned to training but it remains to be seen whether he would be thrown in the starting 11 straightaway. Xavi is said to be wanting the Spanish forward to be fully fit for the game against Bayern.

Ousmane Dembele’s return from injury is welcome news for Xavi and the French man could start against Betis.

Real Betis

Real Betis haven’t looked back since their defeat against Sevilla as they have won all of their last four games in all competitions.

They secured a 3-1 win over Levante in La Liga last week after Juanmi netted a stellar hat-trick. The Spanish forward looks in good nick of form this season after scoring eight goals.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men turn out to be a dark horse this season as they are aiming for a place in the top-four.

Furthermore, they are only two points off second-placed Atletico Madrid and if they manage to beat Barca on Saturday, the top-four race could be pretty more exciting.

Possible Real Betis line-up

Silva; Hector Bellerin, German Pezzella, Ruiz, Alberto Moreno; Guido Rodriguez, Guardado; Sergio Canales, Rodri, Juanmi; Willian Jose

Injured: Youssouf Sabaly, Claudio Bravo

Doubtful: Martin Montoya

Suspended: Nabil Fekir
