If you fancy the visitors to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 17/10.
One to watch for Sevilla: Wissam Ben Yedder is the dangerman for Sevilla and is their joint top league scorer with six La Liga strikes this season, alongside his recent double at Manchester United. He is priced at 23/10 to find the net anytime here.
One to watch for Barcelona: Lionel Messi is the top scorer in La Liga so far this campaign with 25 goals in his 28 outings – with eight in his last six games in all competitions – and he is available at 11/13 to score at any point in this game.
