Barcelona will face off against Real Betis at the Benito Villamarín Stadium on Saturday night as they hoped to pick up maximum points from this away clash in La Liga. The Catalan giants managed to get the better of Real Betis by a 2-1 scoreline earlier this month which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.

Xavi will probably stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and is expected to name a strong team for this game. Eric Garcia could get a start in the injury absence of Gerard Pique while Clement Lenglet settles for a spot on the bench.

4-3-3 Barcelona Predicted Lineup To Face Real Betis

Defence

Marc-André ter Stegen will operate in goal for the Catalan outfit after he conceded one goal versus Mallorca in his last league outing. Eric Garcia will feature alongside Clement Lenglet at the centre of Barca’s defence as they try to restrict the home side from scoring this weekend.

Dani Alves could keep his place at right-back while Jordi Alba fills in on the other flank as the left-back. Xavi will give both of them the license to express themselves in the opponent’s half.

As mentioned earlier, Clement Lenglet will be available for selection on the bench as he provides cover for the centre-back positions.

Midfield

Gavi, Sergio Busquets and Frenkie de Jong will make up the Barca midfield. Their main responsibility will be to create some clear-cut chances for their teammates up top to win this contest.

Riqui Puig will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second half if needed.

Attack

Memphis Depay will function as the left-sided wide player while Ferran Torres hopes to catch the eye on the right. Depay managed to score versus Mallorca, so we can expect the Dutch attacker to be full of confidence ahead of this game.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will lead the charge for the Catalan club on the attacking end of the field.

Luuk de Jong will have to settle for a place on the bench as he awaits his opportunity to make an impact in the second half if needed.
