Sevilla vs Barcelona
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 31 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan (Sevilla).
Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan will play host to the derby of the Matchday in La LIga on Saturday evening when runaway leaders Barcelona are to visit Andalusia for the clash with Sevilla. Both teams will have their Champions League fixture s(next week) in mind, but we will still be in for a thrilling evening of football between the old rivals without doubts.
There is a big decision on Ernesto Valverde ahead of the clash given that his star man Lionel Messi has skipped both of Argentina’s friendlies against Italy and Spain due to a slight ankle problem. Will the Argentine superstar be rested for the Champions League affair with Roma? It would be completely reasonable decision for Valverde given that Blaugrana are as many as 11 points clear off their main challengers Atletico Madrid at the very top of the league standings.
Sevilla will not play the Champions league football next term unless they lift the trophy in the competition in May (highly unlikely scenario). Los Rojiblancos have made a massive upset by eliminating Manchester United with an impressive 1-2 win at Old Trafford, but they’ll have a super tough rival in the battle for the place in the last four as they have to eliminate German giants Bayern Munich to get there.
Sevilla vs Barcelona: Head-to-head
Sevilla have not been a tricky opposition for Barcelona over the past couple of years.
Blaugrana have won each of last seven meetings with Los Rojiblancos, including a 2-1 victory in November at Camp Nou when the teams took on each other in this term of La Liga.
Barca have bagged two or more goals in each of last seven encounters with Sevilla.
Sevilla vs Barcelona: Prediction
Vincenzo Montella’s men have been pretty easy to break down against stronger opponents in this term of Primera Division.
Sevilla have shipped as many as seven goals in two recent home losses to the likes of Atletico Madrid and Valencia).
Knowing that Barcelona have notched two or more goals in each of last seven H2H ties against Los Rojiblancos, we’ll for the away win & Blaugrana to net two or more goals as main bets here.
