On Thursday the 2nd round of the Spanish Super Cup will take place at the King Fahd Stadium in Riyadh, which will face Betis for being the current champion of the Copa del Rey with Barcelona as runner-up in the 2021/22 League.
This Super Cup for Betis is presented as one of the few opportunities available to win a title, while for Barcelona the achievement of this title would mean ending the drought since the Copa del Rey 2021 and incidentally winning the first round in the bid that he maintains with Real Madrid.
Real Betis – Barcelona | Where to see?

Real Betis – Barcelona | that’s how they arrive
Barcelona is the team with the most Super Cups with 13 trophies, although he hasn’t gotten any since this new format. Although in the Champions League they have left a somewhat disappointing role after being eliminated in the group stage, in the League they are much stronger since they are the sole leader with a 3-point advantage over Real Madrid.
This matchday they beat Atlético de Madrid 0-1 at the Metropolitano with a goal from Dembelé, and in the Copa del Rey they continue on after beating Intercity 3-4 in a clash that scared their bodies.
For Betis, winning the Super Cup would mean adding this trophy to their record. In the 2005/06 season they had the opportunity, but they lost precisely against Barcelona when, at that time, a double game was being played.
This day they have been reunited with victory after 3 games without winning, in Vallecas against Rayo by 1-2 in a clash that was very difficult for the Verdiblanco team.
A few days before they had beaten Ibiza Islas Pitiusas in the Copa del Rey, which together with the fact that they passed the group stage of the Europa League in 1st position, leaves Betis alive in all competitions.
Real Betis – Barcelona | possible alignments
Neither Sabaly nor Paul Akouokou will be at Betis, while Alex Moreno would be preparing his bags to go to Aston Villa.
Xavi for his part will not be able to count on Ferrán Torres due to suspension, although Lewandowski and Jordi Alba return to the game absent in the Metropolitan.
Betis: Rui Silva; Ruibal, Victor Ruiz, Edgar Gonzalez, Miranda; Guido Rodriguez, Carvalho; Henrique, Fekir, Rodri and Borja Iglesias.
Barcelona: Ter Roasting; Kounde, Roland Araujo, Christensen, Friday; Pedri, Busquets, Frenkie; Robert Lewandowski and Dembele.
Real Betis – Barcelona | recommended bets
|Odds at bet365|
|Betis does not score in the second part||1.61|
|More than 8 corners||1.61|
|Both teams receive 2 or more cards||1.44|
|Over 2.5 goals||1.61|
|Lewandowski mark goals||1.61|
Although it is always easier for a single party to surprise, Barcelona is a much better team than Betis and we believe that they will be in the final by winning this match.
We could be facing a lively game at stake, which translates into bets such as that the remaining 2.5 goals go over at a quota of 1.61 or that more than 8 corners are taken, which is also paid at 1.61.
Coincidentally, this quota is repeated in the recommendations for this match, since there is also 1.61 left for Betis to remain unmarked in the 2nd half. Barcelona only 2 teams out of 16 so far in the League have scored after the break.
The game should be intense for what we see at a quota of 1.44 that each team sees at least 2 cards, and we have the market of players in which we are going with Robert Lewandowski for whom a quota of 1.61 is paid because he scores a goal. The Pole has 13 goals in 15 league games.
