The defending La Liga champions Barcelona will host Sevilla at Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys on Friday night in an effort to get their winning streak back on track. The host team, which now sits atop the standings with 17 points, will enter the match following a 2-2 draw with Mallorca on Tuesday. On the same night, Sevilla, who was in 11th place, defeated Almeria 5-1.
Barcelona vs Sevilla
In their upcoming La Liga match, Barcelona will play Sevilla at home in an effort to get back to winning ways. Barcelona is in first place overall going into this match, 10 places ahead of Sevilla. They also lead Sevilla by 10 points, although Girona, who is in second place, is only one point behind them.
The standings may have changed by the time they met Sevilla because Real Madrid played earlier. In the previous game, Barcelona fell short of fully capitalizing on Real Madrid’s blunder. They twice overcame deficits to draw 2-2 with Mallorca, and they’ll be hoping for a better performance this time. before that.
Barcelona entered this match with a winning record after six straight victories. For Barcelona, giving up four goals in only their last two games will be a huge worry.
Recently, Sevilla has added some solidity to their performance. They have won their last four games without losing. Their most recent game against Almeria resulted in a convincing 5-1 victory for them. But in the four games they were unbeaten, that was just their second victory.
The last four games have seen a significant turnaround after the team started the season without a victory in four games. Despite not scoring in one of them, they also had two clean sheets in those four games. Sevilla will be hoping to end a streak in this match in which they have failed to defeat Barcelona in six meetings. Given that they have lost four straight away league games, this does not bode well.
Sevilla is more than capable of challenging Barcelona in this match, especially since they are coming off their greatest performance of the season. But since Xavi’s team will be itching to win again, we can see the Catalan team eking out a victory and taking all three points.
For a comeback victory in the final ten minutes of play, the Blaugranas fought valiantly. Despite not playing their home matches at the renowned Camp Nou, Barca has been in such good form. With the addition of fresh faces like Ilker Gundogan and Oriol Romeu, who have strengthened the team, Xavi appears to have discovered the winning formula.
Sevilla, on the other hand, is having trouble, and their results have not been favorable. In their last two games, they had a variety of inconsistent outcomes. Despite having a few good chances in both games, their Champions League match against RC Lens and the weekend league match against Osasuna both ended in draws (1-1 and 0-0, respectively).
Goals are nearly a guarantee in this game because Barcelona has a frightening trident in attack that scores a ton of goals. As a result, we are betting on both teams to score more than 2.5 goals.
