Overview

Finally, the smile returned to the Blaugrana faces as Barca cruised past Real Mallorca in front of the home faithful, breaking an unsuccessful series of games on the turf of Camp Nou. Xaviball was back in style, while this victory also strengthened Barca’s position at the league table.

After a dip in form, where Barca found themselves out of the Europa League and in a negative tendency in the league, the win against Mallorca was a statement that it was just a temporary stumble.

Barca will travel to Seville to face the fifth-placed team in La Liga and Copa Del Rey winners Real Betis, and a win against Los Verdiblancos ( The Green-and-Whites ) will guarantee a Champions League spot for the Catalan giants.

Real Betis lifted the Copa del Rey for the third time in their history last month by beating Valencia in the final, while they are also very much in the contention for a top-four spot. They are just three points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid, and a victory in this match would leave them in a confident mood ahead of their final three fixtures against Valencia, Granada, and Real Madrid.

Real Betis midfielder Sergio Canales, sees Saturday’s match as a huge chance in their top-four push. He spoke to the press after the draw against Getafe.

“We are three points away from the Champions League, which is clearly our goal,” he said. “Everything goes through that game at home against Barcelona, ​​which is a final for us.”

Xavi emphasized on finishing the league as runners-up in his pre-match press conference ahead of their clash against Real Betis.

“There are five teams in the race and it has to be us. Real Madrid have already won the title. Congratulations to them, they are worthy winners because 38 games do not lie,” he said. “Now it’s about winning that five-team mini-league, qualifying for the Champions League, and finishing second.”
