Tomorrow afternoon, Barcelona will host Real Betis at the Camp Nou in their seventh LaLiga clash of the 2020/21 season. Currently, their opposition is ahead of them in the standings with 12 points to eight but with two games in hand as well.
The Catalans have enjoyed far from a perfect start to the campaign but it’s still very early and everything can be amended. There’s more good news for them as well since Nabil Fekir will officially miss the clash tomorrow as he wasn’t called up for the game.
Real Betis have already announced the squad that will travel to Catalonia and their main man’s name is missing from the list. This could be a huge relief for Barcelona since Fekir is one of the best players in their team.
Still, despite that being a huge disadvantage for the visitors, Real Betis have looked extremely confident this season under the guidance of Manuel Pellegrini. The team is finally ticking and is stable in both attack and defence.
All of that could still cause trouble for a largely struggling Barcelona squad. However, with Fekir out, there’s one less danger to worry about for the Azulgranas.
