Barcelona Faces Real Betis Without Key Players

1 min read

In an upcoming La Liga showdown, Barcelona will have to face Real Betis without two key players, Pedri and Ronald Araujo. Pedri is nursing a thigh injury he sustained in August, while Araujo is recovering from a hamstring problem suffered last month. The absence of these talented players poses a challenge for Barcelona.

However, there’s a glimmer of hope for Barcelona fans. Ilkay Gundogan, despite concerns over a back injury during international duty with Germany, has been included in the squad. Barcelona’s head coach, Xavi, remains cautious about Gundogan’s starting status, awaiting his fitness assessment.

Excitingly, 16-year-old sensation Lamine Yamal is set to make an impact. Fresh from becoming Spain’s youngest-ever player and goalscorer, Yamal has already contributed two assists in La Liga. Xavi is confident in Yamal’s abilities and sees him as an important asset for the team.

The squad also includes promising youngsters Unai Hernandez and Marc Casado. However, Fermin Lopez won’t be available due to suspension after a red card while representing Barcelona’s second team.

As the match against Real Betis approaches, Barcelona, with 10 points from their first four games, aims to continue their winning streak, having triumphed over Cadiz, Villarreal, and Osasuna.

Facing a technically skilled opponent under the guidance of Manuel Pellegrini, Barcelona anticipates a highly contested match. Football enthusiasts are eager to witness this thrilling La Liga clash, despite the absence of some key players.
