Saturday afternoon’s La Liga action sees Spanish champions and current league leaders Barcelona travel to an out-of-form Sevilla.

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.

Unsurprisingly, the visitors are favourites for this encounter at odds of 4/5 with a Sevilla victory priced at 14/5 and the draw available at 29/10.

These fixtures tend to produce a lot of goals with 27 going in across the most recent six meetings, so over 3.5 goals at 13/10 appears to be a solid bet with over 4.5 at 29/10.

A ‘double chance’ on Sevilla to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 19/20 while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 1/4.

If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 15/8 while Barca to win both halves is at 21/5.

Latest Form

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.
