- Barcelona will lock horns vs Real Betis in Sunday night’s late kickoff at the Estadio Benito Villamarin in Seville
- The Camp Nou outfit are coming into this game on the back of a five-game winning run in all competitions
- Ronald Koeman’s side have also scored the most number of goals (41) of any side in the Spanish top division this season
Barcelona will be aiming to make it six wins in a row in all competitions when they travel to Seville to face Real Betis on Sunday night.
Three of those victories have come in the Spanish Copa del Rey where Barca have defeated the likes of UE Cornella, Rayo Vallecano and Granada in the last three rounds, with Elche and Granada the La Liga outfits that Barcelona have defeated during their five-game winning run.
However, extending their winning run on Sunday won’t be easy given that Betis are also on a five-game unbeaten run, recording victories over Huesca, Celta Vigo and Osasuna in that period. An improbable victory on Sunday might see them climb to 6th in the table, provided results elsewhere go their way.
