Real Betis shocked a record seven in the Camp Nou with Barcelona


Quique Setieen's brave plan paid.

Before playing Real Betis, Quique Setien insisted that his team would not let the game's style run out of contradiction with the Barcelona leaders.

"We are going to try, but I do not know we can do it. Barcelona has done this for 25 years and Betis is just a year and a half," Setie admitted.

"Reality is not always the same, we want the ball so that we can further exert pressure, so we try to do: play our football but we can and try to steal the ball from them."

And it worked.

Lionel Messi's return from injury is not enough to intimidate Betis who was born after 4-3 winners after a tense, tight relationship with a rainy afternoon.

It was the first time Barcelona lost their homes in LaLiga after they had killed Alaves in September 2016, 793 days ago. It was Beta's first win at Barcelona's Camp Nousta since 1998. The victory also won Setién's recognition that he was the only coach who has won the Santiago Bernabeu and Camp Nou over the last ten years.

Betis dominated 15 shots, five less than Barça, but eight of them had a goal compared to the combined five hosts.

The possession was fairly steady, but the ruthlessness of Betis in the battle showed a difference when they decided on the weekend.

The Junior Firpo opened the visitors with 20 minutes before the 37-year-old Joaquín doubled the lead with 34 minutes.

Giovani Lo Celso, assisted by Ter-Stegen's irregular error and Sergio Canales also got a scoreboard, which meant that Messi and another Arturo Vidal were not enough to earn points in Barcelona.

Defense defeat has been at the same time as Barça this year, and today's result has not made any of Ernesto Valverde's concerns behind his back.
