The 4-2 win puts Barca in a comfortable third position in the La Liga table. Barca is 8 points behind league leader Girona, who is at 52 points. Real Madrid is second with 51 points, and Atletico Madrid are fourth, 3 points behind Barcelona. Barcelona look ahead to their Copa del Rey Quarter-final game against Athletic Bilbao at the San Mamés stadium tomorrow.

Barca fans are very happy for the club's future because of Torres' and Yamal's performances. Barca fans are very impressed with Yamal because he performs well at 16 years old. The Spanish winger is claimed to be more dangerous than Raphinha in the right-wing position, and many hope the player can deliver strong performances for Barca for the next decade. Another young player who started in the game and also performed well was Pau Cubarsi. Cubarsi turned 17 years old yesterday and started the game next to Ronald Araujo.

Cubarsi was admired for his composure on the ball at such a young age and for keeping Real Betis's striker quiet for most of the game. He rated a 94% pass accuracy and had 80% accurate long balls. He made two clearances, one interception, and two recoveries. He won all of his ground duels and 50% of his aerial duels. This has caught the attention of a former Barcelona coach and he has been on the radar for a long time.

Manchester City and Pep Guardiola are interested in Cubarsi, who is worth only 1.2 million euros. According to Diario AS, Guardiola and Man City have been looking at the player for a while, but the player signed a 3-year contract with Barca with a release clause of 10-15 million euros. With more potential games with the first team, a new contract could be coming up soon for the player and the value will increase to push away interest like Man City.
