Barcelona vs Sevilla
Spain – LaLiga
Date: Sunday, 6 October 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona).
Barca is slowly finding their rhythm back, and with the return of several of their main players, who were out injured, the defending champions surely are on the rise. In addition to all of this, the fear factor that the Camp Nou provides to visitors will be extra reason to back a win for the hosts this Sunday.

Barcelona vs Sevilla Prediction
The Blaugrana made an impressive comeback the last day, as they dealt a defeat to the then so-far unbeaten Inter Milan in the Champions League. Right away in the second minute, Lautaro Martinez had found the back of the net at this venue, but the CL semifinalists of the preceding season responded well to register a 2-1 scoreline at the end.
Lionel Messi made his return a triumphant one with a Man-of-the-Match performance.
Julen Lopetegui’s men meanwhile, lost on the road against Eibar. The former had held a two-goal lead till the 67th minute, only to concede three goals in the latter stages of the tie.
One more tough road trip awaits them, as they are supposed to travel to a ground, where they predominantly have suffered. In fact, they lost the previous six trips they made to this famed pitch, and have conceded a total of 34 goals from their prior ten journeys.
In addition, the hosts of the day have won 15 of their last 17 appearances here and boast of a 100% win-record this campaign in front of the home crowd.
As such, count on Valverde’s men to record a victory this Sunday, and score at least twice in the process as well.
Still, taking into account the defensive struggles the team has had over the course of preceding several weeks, coupled with the absence of Jordi Alba, and Samuel Umtiti due to injury, and Clement Lenglet due to suspension, a clean sheet might be out of the question for Marc Andre Ter-Stegen.
