La Liga Barcelona vs Betis 12/4/2021 Prediction and Match Preview

Real Betis are coming off a big win in the Cup mid-week, and they are now on a 4-match winning streak in all competitions. 

Barcelona (6 wins, 3 losses, 5 draws) are coming off a 3-1 win on the road against Villarreal. They are now unbeaten in their last 6 matches in all competitions (3 wins, 3 draws), keeping 3 clean sheets but haven’t been great defensively.

Benfica are expected to win that seemingly easy home match, which means that Barcelona only need a win at Munich. Barcelona have the 3rd best xG with 1.66 per game and the 5th best offense with 23 goals.

They have the 3rd best xG at home with 1.92 per game and the 2nd best home offense with 16 goals. They have the 4th best xGA with 1.14 per game and the 4th best defense with 16 conceded. And they also have the 2nd best xGA at home with 0.93 per game and the 7th best home defense with 8 conceded.

La Liga Barcelona vs Betis Predictions 12/4/2021

Betis (8 wins, 4 losses, 3 draws) are coming off a big win in the Cup, beating Alicante by 4-0. Last week they beat Levante by 3-1 at home and they are now on a 4-match winning streak, scoring 12 goals and conceding just 1 in the process.

Betis have a 4-2-1 record on the road, along with a win and a loss in the Europa League. All 5 wins came against inferior teams (Elche, Alaves, Osasuna, Granada, Mallorca), but they lost all 3 matches where they played against better teams, without even scoring and conceding 2+ goals in all 3 (Villarreal 2-0, Atletico Madrid 3-0, Bayer Leverkusen 3-0).

Moreover, Betis’ starting goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is injured. His substitute, Rui Silva, has played 10 matches this season (5 wins, 3 losses, 2 draws – just 2 clean sheets). So I expect this Betis defense to have a tough time against this strong Barcelona offense.

Betis do have a Europa League match coming up, but they have already qualified as 2nd in that group no matter what happens. They will try to take something from this trip at Barcelona. 

Barcelona vs Betis. Betis have scored 2+ goals in 4 of their last 5 trips here. All 4 of those matches had Both Teams to Score & Over 5.5! 5-2 / 5-2 / 3-4 / 6-2. 22 of the last 26 matches between the two sides in this venue (dating back to 1991) had Over 2.5 Goals.
