The Blaugrana are in great form away from home, having won their last five league matches on the road. Betis, though, will be no push-overs. They are unbeaten in five LaLiga matches, winning three of their last four.

A tight 2-1 win for Real Madrid over Huesca on Saturday, combined with Sevilla’s 3-0 rout of Getafe, has seen Ronald Koeman’s Barca side drop to fourth ahead of this game. However, they would move into second with a victory.
