Barca vs Betis: Match Review

Barca vs Betis: In the dying moments of the game, Dani crossed the ball towards Alba who struck an outrageous volley to win the match for the Blaugrana against the newly crowned Copa Del Rey champions and also secured the Champions League football for the next season.

Barca vs Betis: Alba scored a screamer against Betis

In the opening quarter of the game, Barca looked confident on the ball but gradually lost authority in the midfield as the first half evolved into an end-to-end affair. Manuel Pellegrini’s men frequently flexed their muscles on the break, while the Catalans only kept possession in patches.

Barcelona started the 2nd half with more intense pressing and calmness when in possession but Betis did well to refrain them from creating any threatening situation. Pedri’s absence was highlighted as always. Gavi and Frenkie’s partnership did not seem complementary, with Busquets too obstinate on lofting balls behind Betis’ lines.

The front 3 of Memphis Ferran and Dembele was rather unproductive, which did not exactly come as a surprise, since Memphis prefers a more natural number 9 to feed off. Ferran is someone who drops and rotates significantly and Dembele’s crosses continued to drop off in quality.

With merely 15 minutes remaining, goals began to galore. Ansu Fati arrived with an air of inevitability, rattling the net instinctively. Another example of his innate ball-striking ability and maturity in movements. Bartra, exploiting Barca’s set-piece weaknesses, equalized soon after.
