Barcelona vs Sevilla Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Barcelona kept pace at the top of the table with a 2-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao. Aduriz failed to make the most out of his early chances, and Bilbao paid the price with Lionel Messi scoring the opening goal in the 36th minute. An injury time goal from Paulinho confirmed the three points for Barcelona, who were only able to get a goalless draw with Olympiakos in the midweek Champions League match. Sevilla confirmed a return to form with a 2-1 victory over Leganes during the weekend. Wissam Ben Yedder’s early goal was cancelled out by Alexander Szymanowski’s second-half penalty. However, Pablo Sarabia restored the advantage for Sevilla in the 54th minute. In the midweek Champions League game against Spartak Moscow, Sevilla were able to get a 2-1 win.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Barcelona are strong favourites to win the game after having beaten Sevilla in the last six encounters without exception. Sevilla have failed to score in the last three visits to the Camp Nou, while they have been poor on the road after failing to score in the last three away games this season. Barcelona have kept four consecutive clean sheets in all competitions. I see great value in going with a Barcelona clean sheet.

Lionel Messi has averaged almost a goal per game in the matches against Sevilla, while he last failed to score a league goal against this opponent back in the 2012-13 season. Messi rediscovered his form by scoring the first goal against Athletic Bilbao last weekend. I would back Messi to score first in this match.

Barcelona Preview

Barcelona may have failed to win against Olympiakos, but the club continue to remain extremely strong on all fronts this season. One of the biggest headaches for manager Ernesto Valverde will be getting over the lengthy injury list with a small squad at his disposal. Barcelona have some key games coming up in the next four matches as they face big guns like Sevilla, Juventus, and Valencia. It certainly helps that the club has not conceded any goal in the last four matches. Lionel Messi is the leading scorer at the club with 12 goals.

Barcelona Team News

Manager Ernesto Valverde has a lengthy injury list with Ousmane Dembele (hamstring), Andre Gomes (thigh), Rafinha (meniscus), Andres Iniesta (thigh), Arda Turan (ankle), Aleix Vidal (ankle), and Sergi Roberto (hamstring) unavailable for action.

Sevilla Preview

After a bout of poor form in which the club suffered three consecutive defeats, Sevilla are back to winning ways and have picked up three consecutive wins in all competitions. Just as with Barcelona, Eusebio’s men have a tough time in the next four matches with the team facing the likes of Sevilla, Liverpool, and Villarreal. This could define the campaign with Sevilla on the cusp of dropping out of the race for title without the defeat. There has not been a single outstanding player in terms of scoring goals this season at Sevilla.

Sevilla Team News

Nicolas Pareja (groin), Daniel Carrico (thigh), Walter Montoya (groin), José Mena Rodriguez (groin), and Joaquin Correa (hamstring) are the players unavailable for Sevilla.
