FC Barcelona vs Real Betis : Predicted lineups
FC barcelona are going to be looking to close out an unforgettable year in record-breaking style tomorrow, once they play host to Real Betis at the Camp Nou. additionally to put the icing on the 2015 cake, the Blaugrana need a win tomorrow to finish the year on top of la Liga and keep their title bid heading in the right direction.
Thanks to some poor results while Barcelona were at far east in Japan, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid both remain behind Luis Enrique’s team who also have a game in hand, however even with that in mind, Enrique will be keen to stay on prime.
The question is whether or not Luis Enrique can begin the rotation before a gruelling January schedule during which the Blaugrana will contest a minimum of seven matches, and possibly additional pending their progression in the Copa del Rey.
Claudio Bravo will continue in goal, obviously; before him though, I anticipate that we’ll see some modification. i believe that Jeremy Mathieu or Adriano Correia could begin before Jordi Alba, if solely as a result of Real Betis lack any real pace down the flanks. And also to mock the Barcelona fans mad about Grimaldo’s departure, chiefly the last one.
In the heart of defense, expect to watch Gerard Pique, fresh off from his holidays in Japan and in Paris over the vacation period, and probably marc Bartra or Thomas Vermaelen alongside him within the backline. Dani Alves will complete the back four, having found some kind from somewhere in recent appearances.
Goal-shy Betis has scored only once in their past 3 La Liga matches; and it absolutely was Ruben Castro’s long-time strike partner, Jorge Molina who grabbed that equaliser against Celta Vigo. However, that was over a hundred and eighty minutes of action ago; since then Betis have drawn blanks against both Las Palmas, and fierce rivals, Sevilla FC. Molina will certainly miss the match tomorrow, although that’s regarding it from an injury perspective.
