Real Betis boss Quique Setien says his team will try to steal the ball off Barcelona when the two teams clash at the Camp Nou on Sunday.

Betis come into the game off the back of draws against Celta Vigo and AC Milan, and Setien has spoken about how they intend to play against the Spanish champions.

“We’re going to try but I don’t know if we’ll be able to do it. Barcelona have been doing this for 25 years and Betis only a year and half,” he said.

“The reality isn’t always the same. We want to have the ball so we are able to pressure further up the pitch.

“That’s what we’ll try to do: play our style of football however we can and try to steal the ball from them.

Barcelona drew with Inter in midweek but found it tough going against Rayo Vallecano last time out in La Liga.

Ernesto Valverde’s side looked destined for defeat until late goals from Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez secured all three points.
