Barcelona vs Sevilla
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 20 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona).
Sevilla overtook Barcelona and Real Madrid and climbed up at the very top of the league standings after a streak of four consecutive wins in the competition. Los Rojiblancos have been deadly in the final third along the way, bagging as many as 14 goals in these four wins (3.5 per game). Can they take advantage of the momentum and keep such form going against reigning champions Barcelona in the derby of the Matchday on Saturday evening?
Blaugrana are in huge crisis if we take a look at their league results. They go into this winless in four straight La Liga affairs. They drew three and lost one in the process and can only be thankful to real Madrid’s disastrous run of form for being still in a genuine quest for the title.
Barcelona vs Sevilla: Head-to-head
- Barcelona were the dominant force in this match-up over the years.
- Blaugrana won 35, drew 11 and lost 11 of 57 encounters against Sevillistas.
- Barcelona won 9 and drew 1 of last 10 matches against Los Rojiblancos.
- Three or more goals were seen in all of last seven head to head outings between the two sides.
Barcelona vs Sevilla: Prediction
We have all ingredients for a high-scoring thriller this Saturday at Camp Nou. Ernesto Valverde’s troops were surprisingly easy to break down in the most recent set of fixtures and we can hardly imagine them keep things tight against such an in-form attacking outfit here.
Barca will still be without injured Samuel Umtiti and backing goals at both ends is a heavy banker here. The question is whether the hosts can return on the winning ways and get their league campaign up and running with a victory against table-toppers here?
We’d definitely skip the home win bet at 1.33 with such form of Sevilla’s. You will probably make no mistake backing any “Over” bet here. Over 3.5 goals FT is paid at 1.72, while Over 1.5 goals in the first half is priced up at 1.83.
