Barcelona is well aware that a win on Saturday will secure their participation in the UEFA Champions League for next season. But beating a well-oiled machine that has just won the Copa del Rey remains a daunting task.


With the exception of those on the verge of suspension, Barcelona already has a long list of players who will miss Saturday’s game away from home.


Xavi is aware that he cannot rely on veteran defender Gerard Pique, who is followed by Sergi Roberto, Pedri, Nico, Sergio Dest, and Pedri.


In addition to the five previously mentioned injuries, first-choice goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen is also out. This means that a certain Neto Murata will face Betis.


As a result, ter Stegen’s absence is a blessing in disguise for the squad, as Neto has a perfect record against Betis, having never lost a game against them.


While he hasn’t faced Betis while playing for Barcelona, he has faced them while playing for Valencia.


During this time, he won all three of his meetings against Betis while conceding only four goals. In addition, he saved a penalty against Sergio Leon in 2017.


On the other hand, there is some good news: Ansu Fati is available for this game. The return of Oscar Mingueza and Martin Braithwaite, who have recovered from COVID, also helps the team.


Barcelona’s squad:


Neto and Tenas in goal.

Araujo, Alves, Lenglet, Alba, Mingueza, Umtiti, Garcia are the defenders.

Busquets, Puig, de Jong, and Gavi are the midfielders.

Dembele, Memphis, Fati, Adama, Braithwaite, Luuk, Torres, and Aubameyang are the forwards.
