Sevilla vs. Barcelona Predictions and Preview
Sevilla were La Liga table toppers in November but their form has tailed off dramatically since then with just one league win in their last eight attempts and two of the last 11.
Barcelona have recovered form after winning just three La Liga games in nine attempts by winning nine of their last eleven, with a win over Real Valladolid last time out.
They have kept eight clean sheets in their last 11 matches as they have reinforced their chances of winning a fourth La Liga title in five seasons and are now six points clear at the top of La Liga.
One to watch for Sevilla: French forward Wissam Ben Yedder is up to 20 goals for the campaign including recent strikes against Eibar and Roma. He is at 9/5 to score anytime in this game.
One to watch for Barcelona: Lionel Messi is now up to 29 goals for the campaign as he continues his devastating goalscoring form. He should be back to full fitness following a thigh injury and is at 17/20 to score here.
Long shot: Barcelona have eight clean sheets from their last eleven while Sevilla have failed to score in four of their last six games. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 23/1.
