This game might have been seen as a test of Barcelona’s resurgence if they hadn’t managed to wipe the floor with Real Madrid in the Clásico just before the international break. Now it will be Sevilla hoping to keep up, as their campaign looks to be stuttering towards the end.
Where and when: Camp Nou – 3 April, kick-off 20:00
Where you can see Barcelona vs. Sevilla: Eleven, La Liga TV
Last time: These two played out a 1-1 draw at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán when Xavi was just getting used to being back at Barcelona in December.
Barcelona vs. Sevilla Predictions and Preview
It is quite something to say that the 4-0 scoreline Barcelona celebrated at the Bernabéu doesn’t actually do the Catalan club justice. Xavi’s side completely overwhelmed their old rivals – and league leaders by ten points. There could have been many more goals if it wasn’t for the finishing of the forwards and the saves of Courtois in the Real goal.
Everything worked like clockwork for Barcelona and Aubameyang showed just how much happier he is in Spain than at Arsenal by scoring two of the four goals.
Sevilla seem to be going in the other direction, however. There were faint murmurings about a title challenge earlier in the season but now Julen Lopetegui will probably be happy with just hanging on for a top four finish. There was another goalless draw at home to Real Sociedad in the last match and any momentum seems to have well and truly stopped.
Barcelona vs. Sevilla full time result odds
Rewind a few months and the odds for this fixture would have been completely different. But now Barcelona have lost just one league game since Xavi took over and have progressed to the last eight of the Champions League. Sevilla may still be second in the table before this one kicks off but they have drawn seven of the last nine in La Liga and crashed out of the Europa League. This should finish as a home win at odds of 4/9.
Barcelona vs. Sevilla both teams to score odds
For all the talk of Atlético Madrid’s defensive strength, it is Sevilla who have the best goals against record in La Liga. Even in the current poor run of form, they have still not conceded many goals – but the team doesn’t seem to be scoring many up the other end either. That could be a problem at the Camp Nou. With Barcelona in the form they are in, this could end in a clean sheet for the home side.
Barcelona vs. Sevilla correct score odds
Sevilla will be hoping that they can turn around their form and pull out a performance on Sunday like one from earlier in the season. That may make it a little more difficult for Barcelona to create the scoring opportunities that they were offered against Real Madrid in their last fixture. There will be some who think the home side will continue to score goals but a 1-0 win at 6/1 looks like good value.
Barcelona vs. Sevilla first goalscorer odds
Barcelona are another Spanish top flight club that have their pick of attacking players who like to score goals. Top scorer Memphis Depay didn’t even start against Real Madrid and Ansu Fati is returning from injury as well. But it is Aubameyang who is really enjoying life at the moment and he could be the one to find the net first on Sunday.
