Barcelona struggled to win 2-1 at Real Betis, thereby certainly having a place in the Champions League next season. Of course, coach Xavi’s teachers and students also need to firmly defend their current second place under pressure from Sevilla, the Camp Nou team will try to beat Celta Vigo in the next round.
In the match at Real Betis, Barcelona encountered a fierce block from the opponent and it took until the 76th minute to open the scoring thanks to the young talent Ansu Fati. Despite being equalized later, left-back Alba fixed a 2-1 victory for the home team in the 94th minute, a really hard victory but also left a lot of emotions. Coach Xavi’s teachers and students have definitely got a ticket to attend the C1 Cup.
Barcelona’s task for the rest of the season is to firmly defend the second position they hold. Coach Xavi has also started planning for the summer transfer window to regain a competitive position for the home team. In the immediate future, he and his students need to defeat Celta Vigo, the club has run out of goals. Therefore, the possibility that the Camp Nou team will win 3 points is quite high.
Welcoming the bottom team Alaves, Celta Vigo did not hold back and beat the opponent with a 4-0 victory. The duo Galhardo and Aspas contributed to 3 goals, of which the loser of two brought a double. With 43 points, Coach Coudet’s teachers and students have officially been successfully relegated and are not under much pressure in the remaining rounds. Therefore, their motivation to compete may be reduced a lot.
Barcelona handicap of 1 1/4, the number must be said to be quite high. Statistics show that the last 5 victories of the home team in La Liga are only 1 goal difference. Fortunately, Celta Vigo really has no goals and perhaps not enough determination in the trip to Camp Nou. It is likely that Coach Coudet’s teachers and students will have to receive a defeat in terms of scores.
