The Catalan outfit will be keen to bounce back from their defeat against Espanyol when they take on the Andalusians

Barcelona will look to stretch their lead at the top of La Liga when they face Real Betis in Seville on Sunday.

The Blaugrana's nearest rivals, Atletico Madrid, could only draw against Girona on Saturday, meaning a win over Betis would send them 11 points clear.

Ernesto Valverde's men will be particularly fired up for the game, having had their unbeaten run halted by rivals Espanyol in the Copa del Rey during the week.

They remain unbeaten in the Primera Division after 19 games though and will be eager to preserve that record.

GAME PREVIEW


Thomas Vermaelen Gerard Pique Barcelona

Barcelona had their aura of invincibility tarnished last week as they lost to local rivals Espanyol in the Copa del Rey, but they remain in a formidable position in La Liga.

Indeed, Valverde's men are well clear of their nearest challengers and can go even further ahead should they defeat Real Betis on Sunday evening.

Barca beat Betis 2-0 when the teams bet at Camp Nou in August, but they are likely to encounter a more difficult task away from home, although the hosts have not been overly convincing at the venue of late.

Nevertheless, having already beaten Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, they possess the quality to threaten the Catalan outfit.
