Barcelona will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to the new season this weekend, as they welcome Real Betis to Catalonia. The visitors will be looking to record a second straight victory, which could see them end the weekend in the top four.
Before Betting On Barcelona vs Real Betis
Barcelona will have the opportunity to move to the top of the La Liga standings on Saturday, as they look to land a fourth straight win. They were held on the opening day of the season, but they have responded well since that setback to move up to third in the standings. However, they are dropping points fairly regularly, which would be a concern.
Barcelona have dropped points in four of their last eight matches, which is as many as they had dropped in their last 19. Over their last eight matches, they have won four times. However, they have started the season without suffered a defeat in their opening four matches for the third straight season.
Real Betis bounced back from defeat in their most recent fixture, and a second straight win this weekend could see them end the weekend in the top four places. Betis have an excellent record on the road, as they have won ten of their last 15 points away from Betis.
Meanwhile, Betis have won two of their last five away matches against Barcelona in the league. That is an impressive turnaround after winning just once on their previous 22 visits. However, Barcelona still dominates the recent meetings, as they have won 17 of their last 20 league matches against their rivals this weekend.
