Barcelona suffered yet another defeat in the La Liga fixture losing to Real Betis by one goal to nil at their home ground Camp Nou, just before their important Champions League match against Bayern Munich on December 9. 

While, in the other league match, Sevilla defeated Villarreal by one-goal to nothing with Lucas Ocampos scoring the winning goal in the first half.

The first half ended goalless, but Juanmi separated the two sides by netting the late-winner in the 79th minute which eventually turned out to be the decisive factor. 

Real Betis after the huge victory over Barcelona are on third of the La Liga table with 30 points. 

In the match between Sevilla and Villarreal, the Villarreal outfit dominated in the early minutes, but in the 16th minute Sevilla managed to score a goal, when Lucas Ocampos delivered the ball into the opponent's net as the match ended in a 1-0 victory for Sevilla.

They, who are now second on the points table with 31 points, are eight points adrift of toppers Real Madrid.
