Barcelona will look to go eight points clear at the summit, at least temporarily, when they take on Real Betis in Wednesday's La Liga encounter in Seville.
The Blaugrana's solitary goal win against Girona and second-placed Real Madrid dropping points in the goalless draw against Real Sociedad allowed Xavi's men to open a five-point lead in the title race, while Betis are currently sixth on the table after a 1-0 win at Getafe over the weekend.
