Sevilla and Barcelona are going to face each other in the most exciting clash of the La Liga 25th round on Saturday afternoon. Both teams will search for the victory that can secure them 3rd place after this weekend.
Sevilla vs Barcelona Match Preview & Team News
After losing in the Champions League eight-finals first leg against Dortmund, the hosts got back on the winning track. Sevilla celebrated a 2:0 away to Osasuna and established themselves in the top four. This weekend, Julen Lopetegui’s side has the chance to improve their position on the standings if they beat Barcelona. Sevilla enjoys a six-win streak in La Liga, and the hosts don’t want to stop there. Jules Kounde and the lads have been unbeatable in the back in the previous five rounds. Sevilla and Atletico Madrid are now the best defensive teams in the league, with only 16 goals conceded. The Andalusian team is very confident at its ground with eight victories from 11 games. Sevilla allowed only seven goals to their visitors this season, and they want to keep up the pace.
Barcelona booked an important 3:0 win over Elche on Wednesday, and the away side keeps its title dreams alive. Ronald Koeman’s side is five points behind Atletico Madrid, but the top-placed team has one game in hand. The visitors are on a good streak in La Liga, winning five out of the previous six rounds. However, hiccups like the one last weekend against Cadiz should not happen anymore if Barcelona wants to be competitive in the title race. Leo Messi and the lads are still the most productive team in the competition, but their defense should be more confident. Barcelona managed to get back home with a win from the last six outings, but they conceded in almost all of those. The visitors need to be focused, otherwise, their title chances will be minimal.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Sevilla seems to be more consistent compared to their rivals, and we don’t believe they will lose this game. Moreover, they already celebrated a 2:0 win over Barcelona a bit more than three weeks ago in Copa del Rey.
Goals Market Prediction
The home side is very disciplined in the back, and despite Barcelona’s attacking potential, this could be a tight game. We think it could remain under a 2.5 margin.
