Barcelona begin their title defence in La Liga at home to Real Betis on Saturday. Our betting tips suggest the Catalans will claim a comfortable win.
There were a few lingering doubts over Barcelona heading into the new season. The state of mind of Leo Messi was being questioned in some quarters after the most challenging few months of his career while Barcelona’s defence was leaking goals all over the place in pre-season. However in 180 minutes against Sevilla in the Spanish Super Cup almost all those worries have been eased with Barca cruising to a 5-0 aggregate win and Messi looking as good as ever.

A brace for Arda Turan will have been a big boast for Luis Enrique too and the Turk is likely to fill the void left by Neymar while he remains at the Rio Olympics. The ease of their 1st Leg win in the Super Cup meant they were able to rest a few players ahead of their opening league game which again is against opposition from the city of Seville.

This is some baptism of fire for new Real Betis boss Gus Poyet. He takes over a side that secured a solid 10th place last season on their top flight return and they’ll be hopeful of improving on that this year. They were solid at the back last term but struggled badly for goals, netting just 34, the worst tally in the division and they were heavily dependent on the ageing Ruben Castro up front.
They’ve spent quite a bit of money on bolstering their attacking options this summer and in the long run they are likely to create more chances and score more goals this season so another decent campaign ought to be on the cards. However in terms of this match they aren’t likely to get enough of the ball to really cause many problems for Barca. The departures of Heiko Westermann and key defensive midfielder Alfred N’Diaye mean they are less suited to putting in the kind of rear-guard action that will be required here and Barca should cruise to an easy win.

Therefore backing Barcelona -2.5 Asian Handicap at 1.750 looks a safe bet in this one.
