Betis vs Barcelona: prediction for the La Liga fixture
Barcelona won five games in a row. Will the visitors extend their winning streak in the match against Betis on February 1? The answer is in our prediction.
A late penalty kick brought Betis a 1:0 victory over Getafe, which put an end to team's three-game losing streak. That success keep the team hoping for a first Top-4 finish since 2004/05 season. Manuel Pellegrini's men are just three points away from the 4th place, but their form is still inconsistent - team is unable to win two games in a row since September.
Team is not so successful at home and an upcoming match against Barcelona is unlikely to change the situation. Beticos are unable to secure a home victory over Barca since 2008. After 18 matches of the current season Seville team has nine victories and four draws, delivering 31 points and a 6th position in the standings. Team scored only 20 goals so far in the season. On January, teams faced each other in Saudi Arabia. Beticos lost the Super Cup match on penalties.

The Blaugrana have an outstanding away form - visitors have won eight of nine latest away matches, suffering the only defeat in a game against Real Madrid (1:3). Four of five latest away victories were recorded by a 1:0 score,
