FC Barcelona Competitions: La Liga, UCL and Copa del Rey
As one of the most recognised clubs in world football, FC Barcelona has made its way to the top by adopting a unique style of play and instilling a high quality in the team's culture.
Since the foundation of Barcelona in 1899, they have acquired several trophies on both the domestic and European stages, creating a status that enables them to attract the greatest talents.
Currently, the Barcelona squad does not have the talent that it once did, but exciting prospects lie ahead with young players such as Gavi and Pedri rising through the ranks, and former player, Xavi, learning the ropes of management.
As a player, Xavi was considered among the greatest players in the history of the club, and he offers the potential to bring his knowledge to a developing Barcelona side that could yield plenty of trophies in the coming years.

FC Barcelona 2022/23 Betting
With the future looking bright for Barcelona, fans can be optimistic about the potential for trophies, but how does the current team shape up for challenging for trophies in this coming season?
It goes without saying that this Barcelona squad is not short of experience, with players like Sergio Busquets and Robert Lewandowski featuring. Busquets brings years of experience, having played with some of the club’s greatest players, including Xavi.
Goals shouldn’t be a problem either, with Lewandowski leading the Barcelona attacking line. He has proven how deadly he can be in front of goal, establishing himself as one of the greatest finishers in the world.
With a blend of high-class youth and experience, there is no reason why Barcelona shouldn’t be competing for titles in the 2022/23 season. They will be playing in some of the biggest competitions, featuring in La Liga, the UEFA Champions League and the Copa del Rey.
Given the manager's style and the players at his disposal, we could expect to see an attacking style of football from Barcelona, making betting odds for over 2.5 goals in a match a potential consideration. If Xavi cannot get the team playing during this transition period, you could consider the next Barcelona manager odds.
Betting on FC Barcelona in Spanish La Liga
Barcelona’s history in La Liga ranks them as potential favourites for the title in the 2022/23 season, with their closest competition coming from Real Madrid. With outside teams such as Real Betis and Real Sociedad closing the gap but thus far failing to threaten the two clubs who traditionally sit at the top of Spanish football.
In recent years, Barcelona has not failed to finish outside of the top 3, managing to achieve two titles in the previous six seasons. From the other seasons, Barcelona finished in 2nd position three times, missing out on the title by a fine margin.
For the 2022/23 Spanish La Liga season, Xavi and his squad will be looking to put pressure on the top spot, and this could be likely with a full range of talent in attack, including players such as; Raphinha, Lewandowski, Ousmane Dembele and Ansu Fati starring in attack for the Catalan side.
You can view the outright bets for Barcelona odds to win La Liga via our online betting markets, alongside odds for the top scorer in the league. As a team, they could be favourites to win the league, and they certainly have the goalscoring talent for individuals to be considered for the top scorer award.
Betting on FC Barcelona in UEFA Champions League
Barcelona’s recent performances in the Champions League have been some of the weakest, with regular exits in the quarter-finals. Since the team lost many of the big games players and star characters, they have failed to maintain the elite performance that is required on the European stage.
Although they are going through a period of transition, this is a team that does have a prospect of competing for the best prizes in the coming years.
Considering Barcelona as favourites could be an argument for future competitions, but in the 2022/23 season, they will be faced with tough competition. Their lack of experience at this level could be the barrier that prevents them from progressing.
Betting on FC Barcelona in Copa del Rey
The Copa del Rey is Barcelona’s most successful competition across domestic and European football. Their success has continued in recent years, securing the trophy in the 2020/21, 2017/18 and 2016/17 seasons.
Barcelona could make this current season a successful one in the Copa del Rey as their talent is more than capable of competing against the other teams that feature in the tournament.
Players such as Lewandowski and Busquets can use their experience to guide the team through the tricky challenges of a knockout competition, which the Captain knows very well.
Across the betting markets, you can find outright odds for Barcelona to win the competition, but there is also the option to bet live as you follow each game.
FC Barcelona Recent History

|Round of 16
|Round of 16
History has shown that Barcelona is most successful in domestic competitions, with consistent achievements in Spanish football through competitions such as La Liga, Copa del Rey and the Spanish Super Cup. Although Barcelona’s awards in the UCL do not match those they have won domestically, they are not strangers to the competition.
FC Barcelona Top Goalscorer Betting
Having established himself as one of the world’s most clinical finishers, Robert Lewandowski will be the favourite to score the most goals for Barcelona. Given his talent and the creativity that is around him, Lewandowski could be a likely contender for the top scorer award in La Liga, with Karim Benzema being his closest competitor.
FC Barcelona Top Assister Betting
Barcelona are spoiled for choice regarding creative midfielders and attackers. Adopting an attacking mindset and technical qualities, Pedri and Gavi are likely to offer assists from the deeper positions.
However, Barcelona’s wide positions are where the majority of their attacking threat lies. In 2021/22, Ousmane Dembele recorded the most assists in La Liga, and there would be no surprise if he could replicate this form for the current season, provided he remains fit.
FC Barcelona Yellow Cards Betting
As an attacking team with a focus on controlling games, Barcelona is vulnerable to counter-attacking play. This can cause a problem for defensive-minded midfielders such as Sergio Busquets as he will be forced to break up play. Busquets is a player that has become known for this type of play, which is why the sportsbooks will have him as one of the favourites to receive a yellow card among their Barcelona odds.
