Barcelona v Real Betis Live Commentary & Result, 25/08/2019, Primera División


Barcelona subs: Junior Firpo, Anssumane Fati, Ivan Rakitic, Inaki Pena, Arthur, Samuel Umtiti, Arturo Vidal.

BARCELONA (4-3-3): Marc-Andre ter Stegen; Nelson Semedo, Gerard Pique, Clement Lenglet, Jordi Alba; Sergi Roberto, Sergio Busquets (c), Frenkie de Jong; Rafinha, Antoine Griezmann, Carles Perez.

Atletico Madrid lead Leganes 1-0 with 15 minutes to go in that game and Sevilla already have six points from six, so Barcelona could really do with getting a first win on the board in this opening home game of the new campaign. Betis are also pointless following their loss to Valladolid, leaving them in the relegation zone with Barca and Leganes at this early stage in the season, but they won 4-3 here on their most recent visit and are capable of pulling off another upset. 

Reigning LaLiga champions Barcelona suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Athletic Bilbao in their opening fixture and need to respond here against Betis, who went down 2-1 to Real Valladolid last weekend. Not since 2008-09 have Barca remained winless in their first two league games and, even if he has won back-to-back titles, anything less than victory today will see the pressure grow on boss Ernesto Valverde.
