Having started 2021 on a high, Barcelona’s bid to chase down current La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid continues in matchweek 22. The Catalan giants face Real Betis in an away match at the Benito Villamarín Stadium.

Since the new year, Ronald Koeman’s Barcelona have hit form, winning all their 10 matches this season. Five of these were in the league, helping them leapfrog arch-rivals Real Madrid and take up the second place on the La Liga 2020-21 points table based on goal difference.

However, Lionel Messi and Co. still trail Diego Simeone’s Atletico by 10 points and will be eyeing all three points against seventh-placed Real Betis to keep pace. Watch La Liga matches, including Real Betis vs Barcelona, live in India.

The recent record favours Barcelona overwhelmingly. The Catalans won 15, drew three and lost just once in their last 19 meetings against Betis.

The upcoming fixture, though, may be a sterner tactical test with former Real Madrid and Manchester City coach Manuel Pellegrini in charge of the Betis team.

Both Messi and Antoine Griezmann have been in terrific goal-scoring form of late and the midfield has been bolstered with Frankie de Jong putting on impressive displays regularly since the new year started.

However, Barca’s defence, still without the influential Gerard Pique, can expect a challenge against Pellegrini’s men, who have found the back of the net in each of their last seven fixtures.

In other key matches, Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid will be on the road to face bottom-placed Huesca. Leaders Atletico, meanwhile, will be out to protect their lead against tenth-place Celta Vigo.
