Alves returns to Betis

Edgar Fornós

Dani Alves is set to return top lay in the Ruiz de Lopera against Real Betis Balompié as a Barcelona player for the first time since leaving their arch rivals Sevilla.

Last season the Brazilian full-back would have been gearing up for a major derby date with the Verdiblancos when he was still with Sevilla, but now he heads back to the stadium with the league leaders as they go in search of three more points.

First season

Better in home games

Games against Betis were evidently more successful for Alves when Sevilla were at home and both his goals against them came in the Sanchez Pizjuan as he netted in the 05-06 campaign and in the 07-08 season too. His statistics against them in home matches reads four wins and draw while in the Ruiz de Lopera has lost twice and drawn two other games while winning just once.
