Barcelona vs Sevilla
Spanish La Liga
Date: 5 February 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Spotify Camp Nou (Barcelona).
Barcelona host Sevilla in one of the most exciting games of the 20th La Liga round in the last game of Sunday’s schedule at Spotify Camp Nou. Blaugrana will be searching for their tenth straight win across competitions here.
They have successfully passes some very difficult challenges in January, including the league matches against Atletico Madrid and Betis, Copa del Rey tie against Sociedad, and Super Cup clash with Real Madrid.
Xavi has found the right formula for keeping things quiet in his team’s defensive line, something that has represented a big issue for the Catalans in the last several seasons.
Blaugrana now own by far the best defensive record in the elite class of Spanish football with only 7 goals allowed in 19 matches so far.
Barcelona could have easily kept another clean sheet on Wednesday evening when they shipped a late goal from their own center back Ronald Araujo.
It did not change the outcome of the match, though, as Xavi’s troops saw off Real Betis 1-2 with goals from Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski.
Barcelona will have a really nice opportunity to maintain their winning run here against Sevilla who have been struggling to perform since the beginning of the season.
Jorge Sampaoli’s men took advantage of the somewhat easier schedule in January to escape the red zone after successive home wins over Getafe, Cadiz, and Elche. Barcelona should represent too big of a task for them at Camp Nou.
