They are two teams with a practically treaded bet, and this Sunday will cross in the Camp Nou with an only aim, the victory. FC Barcelona and Real Betis depend on two key appearances that relate them and that they could decant the clash

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The season goes on and this Sunday the calendar detains in the Camp Nou, where FC Barcelona and Real Betis will park his European commitments to go back to centre in LaLiga. Both groups look for the victories through the same method, and there are two key appearances that will judge who finish tieing up the points in the duel of the Day 12.

In a recent interview, Quique Setién recognised that his team copies completely the proposal culé, to monopolise the balloon and attack and defend through the possession. The true is that to the santanderino it is necessary to recognise him the merit, because there where has gone, has attained to impose an idea that has been supported by independence of rivals or stages.

The statistics, besides, backs his work, because in the championship of the regularity, the greater percentage of possession is for the Barcelona, with an average of 68,34%, and the following is 67,46% of the verdiblancos. In case it was little, between the 12 players that more passes complete of the tournament there is four barcelonistas and also three béticos. The similarities are clear.

But if there is a differential factor is the forcefulness, that does some days Ernesto Valverde signalled like capital. The ideal is to keep faithful to the qualities that have cost to win an infinity of titles, but when all fail, touches to do sound the cornetas. The suffered traced back of his pupilos in the Stadium of Vallecas is a good proof of this.

In effectiveness scorer, the Barça golea to the Betis, and never better said. In what it goes of campaign, have fallen 31 so many in the boat of the Catalans, whereas the Andalusians add hardly 8. The drought in attack of the heliopolitanos can be determinant, by a lot that the account of targets fit favour them by little (14 against for the leader, 12 against for the sevillanos).

The Barça has to resolve the doubts in his forward

Precisely, to the Barça will not be missing him goal against the Betis, but what yes will have is some doubts in the forward. Philippe Coutinho is descartado for the meeting by injury, Leo Messi could receive the high but carries several weeks of drop and the presence of Ousmane Dembélé is in the air waiting for knowing as it evolves of his gastroenteritis. To Valverde do not go him to be missing alternatives, but has to hit in his reliefs because his rival has spare arguments to give him some fright in the Camp Nou. The culés do not want risks.
