MATCH PREVIEW

Real Betis will face FC Barcelona in match day 28 in La Liga at the Benito Villamarin on Sunday. The game has greater significance for the home side, who are eight in the table at 39 points, just one point behind sixth-placed Sevilla for the automatic UEFA Europa League spot. However, Los Verdiblancos' recent form does not provide much optimism, as they've won just two of their last six matches in all competitions, losing three times. Real Betis' home form of late does not make pretty reading, as they've managed just four wins in their last 10 at the Benito Villamarin.

On the other hand, Barcelona come in fresh and high on confidence after thrashing Lyon in their UEFA Champions League round of 16 encounter earlier this week. The Catalan giants are comfortably placed at the top of the league table and will be hoping for another impressive performance to get them one step closer to the La Liga title.

Both teams have faced each other 35 times in the league competition, with Barcelona winning 20 and Betis eight. However, Betis actually came out on top back in November when the two sides played at the Camp Nou.
