FULL-TIME, Barcelona 4-0 Real Betis: A dominant performance and a comfortable victory for Barça, who had a much easier task playing against a Betis side that finished the night with nine men but still fully deserved the victory with a great showing in front of the home crowd. The 11-point lead at the top of the table is restored, and the championship is closer and closer to being made official.

82’ GOAL!!! Barcelona 4-0 Real Betis (Rodríguez OG): IT’S FOUR!!! Barça finally score in the second half as Ansu Fati fires a low cross and Guido Rodríguez deflects it against his own net.

81’ INJURY: Betis are down to nine men as Joaquín goes off injured with the visitors having already made all five substitutions.

SECOND HALF KICKOFF! Barcelona 3-0 Real Betis: Back underway at Camp Nou! Let’s finish the job in style with more goals, boys!

HALFTIME, Barcelona 3-0 Real Betis: A dream opening period for the home team, who played very well and took their chances. Betis had good moments of their own but completely imploded once they went down to 10 men, and the chances of a second half comeback are very slim for the visitors.

39’ GOAL!!! Barcelona 3-0 Real Betis (Raphinha): IT’S THREE!!! Barça win the ball high up the pitch on the left wing and Sergio Busquets makes a sensational pass to Raphinha who chips the keeper and triples the lead! The goal was initially ruled out for offside, but a lengthy VAR review confirmed the goal.

36’ GOAL!!! Barcelona 2-0 Real Betis (Lewandowski): BARÇA DOUBLE THE LEAD! A great passing sequence on the right flank ends with a perfect low cross from Jules Kounde and a beautiful first-time finish from Robert Lewandowski!

33’ RED CARD: Betis center-back Edgar González receives his second yellow card in just 20 minutes after coming off the bench and the visitors are down to 10 men.

14’ GOAL!!! Barcelona 1-0 Real Betis (Christensen): BARÇA TAKE THE LEAD! An excellent start is rewarded with the opening goal as Raphinha puts in a beautiful cross and Andreas Christensen heads it home on his return!

KICKOFF! Barcelona 0-0 Real Betis: And we’re underway at Camp Nou!

WELCOME TO THE SPOTIFY CAMP NOU!!! The Greatest Stadium on Earth opens its doors for a massive La Liga match between visitors Real Betis and Barcelona, who come into this one looking for a bounce-back win after the midweek disappointment against Rayo Vallecano. Barça will also look to protect their double-digit lead the the top of the table and continue their march to the title, but Betis have proved to be a brutal opponent in recent seasons and always bring their A-game when meeting Barça. This should be fun, and you’re welcome to join us to follow and comment all the action. Vamos!

Matchday Thread Rules

We don’t have a lot of rules here, but there are a few things to keep in mind when joining our matchday threads:

Even if the referee sucks or we lose the game, watch the swearing. It’s just unnecessary. Also, don’t discuss illegal streaming links. Those who do it will be warned, and those who post links will be instantly banned. Finally, be nice to each other. This is a Barcelona community and we don’t need to offend one another.

Have fun with the game! Forever and ever, no matter the competition, VISCA EL BARÇA!
