Barcelona vs Sevilla – La Liga : In one of the matches of this second day of the 10th round of the Spanish La Liga…
The locals of Barcelona, managed by Ernesto Valverde, and the visitors of Sevilla, coached by Eduardo Berizza, will meet at Camp Nou, in Catalunya,
with both sides being separated by 9 points going into this match on Saturday, in what is the most interesting match of this footballing weekend in Spain.
The local manager won’t be able to count with several players, due to injury, namely: Dembelé, Rafinha, Iniesta, André Gomes and Sergi Roberto, with Arda Turan and Vidal still doubtful;
As for the visiting manager, he won’t be able to count with Pareja and Daniel Carriço, while José Mena is still doubtful.
The Catalans have been having a remarkable campaign on this edition of La Liga, leading the Spanish league clearly,
since they have a considerable advantage over Real Madrid (8 points) and Atlético de Madrid (9 points), having the best attack and the best defence on the competition, where they’ve won 9 out of the 10 matches they played so far.
As for Sevilla, they are having a good season globally, sitting in 5th place in La Liga but not presenting a very good offensive record, only having scored 11 goals on these 10 rounds of competition.
After a less positive streak of games, where they got 3 losses, the team is coming off 3 consecutive wins, where they were able to score 7 goals and only conceded 2.
Barcelona vs Sevilla – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Barcelona is coming off an excellent moment of form, being one of the hardest teams to beat on the defensive aspect, like we can see by their record of only 1 goal conceded every 3 matches,
a record that is even better at home, since they average 1 goal conceded every 5 matches.
On the other hand, and despite the less positive attacking record, Sevilla is not always an easy team to beat defensively and, tactically, they are capable of causing the leaders some problems.
This way, I expect a close 1st half with only 1 goal or even no goals scored.
