Barcelona needs to keep winning and get away from Real Madrid in the standings. For the moment, Blaugrana looks solid, leaving a good impression over the previous several rounds. Xavi’s boys are tired from the trip to Mallorca and back, but that’s the rhythm top football clubs must endure. Sevilla’s start of the year is bad, and the Rojoblancos must find a way out of this position. Located near the bottom of the standings, with problems in all the lines, Mendilibar’s unit is ahead of a challenging task.

Barcelona vs. Sevilla Preview

Barcelona

Apart from the opening event of the year, once they visited Getafe, Barcelona was excellent in all other encounters. Up to the trip to Mallorca, they had six wins in a row, with those against Betis and Antwerp in the UEFA Champions League being especially confident.

Blaugrana triumphed 5-0 in each, showcasing exceptional offense, which wasn’t the case in the past. Apart from that, we’ve seen Xavi’s boys coming back against Celta in the last 15 minutes from 0-2 to 3-2, displaying mental power as well.

Barca plays strong football, yet in recent times, they both score and allow goals, particularly on the road. 

Sevilla

Rojoblancos started the year with four losses in a row, including the one in the UEFA Super Cup against Manchester City. In all four games, we’ve seen them both scoring and conceding. 

After that, Sevilla finally won, 1-0 vs. Las Palmas at home before posting two ties against Lens in the Champions League, 1-1, and Osasuna on the road, 0-0. The results are a bit better, but still under the projected ones.

It’s safe to say that the team is on the downhill, yet that’s been the case for Sevilla’s season opening in the recent few years. They always start the year poorly and make a push in the second part of the campaign.

Barcelona vs. Sevilla Head to Head

Barca was ruthless last year against Rojoblancos, beating them 3-0 in both meetings. They haven’t lost to Sevilla in the previous six contests, winning five and posting one tie.

Barcelona vs. Sevilla Predictions

Barca is a clear favorite here. They are a better team, have the home-court edge, and a deeper roster, which is incredibly important in situations like these when these two units played previous games three days earlier. Overall, this should be a victory for Xavi’s boys, a confident and routine one.

Our verdict: Barcelona wins
