La Liga 2022-23
On Wednesday, Barcelona failed to score in the first half of the match with Betis, but in the second the club was no longer able to hold on, and scored three goals, two against the enemy and one against their own.
This success has already helped to get 50 points, while the advantage of five points may be reduced by the beginning of today’s confrontation with Sevilla.
It is impossible not to note the performance in the defense, which conceded only one goal at the Camp Nou in nine games, while in the last four matches of La Liga the team won by one goal.
After being in the relegation zone for most of the season, Sevilla have managed to move up to the middle of the table with three wins in their last four La Liga matches.
After 19 matches, the guests have a margin of two points from 19th place, with a huge density of opponents in this part of the standings. All this is preparing a serious intrigue in the battle for survival at the end of the tournament.
After 19 rounds, Jorge Sampaoli’s wards have five victories and six draws, which corresponds to 21 points and 13th position.
