Real Betis performed well in their Copa del Rey match against Ibiza Islas and defeated Rayo Vallecano in their last league game, giving them a boost of confidence heading into the match on Thursday. Unfortunately, Camarasa, Cruz, Sabaly, and Akouokou will be out due to injuries.
On the other hand, Barcelona will have Robert Lewandowski and Jordi Alba back in the starting lineup after they missed the 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid due to suspension.
Ferran Torres, who received a red card at the weekend, will also be available for selection, making Barcelona a strong favorite for the match.
Additionally, Raphinha, the Brazilian winger, is expected to return to the starting lineup after being a substitute in the match against los Rojiblancos.
