FC Barcelona – Sevilla, spanish Super cup prediction
Sevilla will try to make get a reveng for their shameful loss against Barcelona by 0-5 in the final of Copa del Rey. The new coach, Pablo Machin, is doing well for now as the team is in a series of 4 consecutive wins, 3 of which against teams from Europe League. Sevilla may be slightly tired of their match against Zalgiris during the week, and the next one comes the rematch. Goal # 1 for Sevilla in the new season is getting back into the top 4. They sold their big star exactly to Barcelona. The french defender Clement Lengtlet is going to compete with Umtiti and Pique. Joaquin Correa was also sold to Lazio. The biggest arrivals for Sevilla this summer are the right winger, Alex Vidal from Barcelona, the defenders Gnagnon and Gomez, and the defensive midfielder, Amadou.
Barcelona played only three friendly matches in the summer in America and this will be their first major test. Valverde is expected to go out with much more serious lineup and the new captain, Leo Messi, to start the game. The new additions, Malcolm, Arturo Vidal and Lenglet, can also have some minutes. Barca did not impress with the youths in their last three games and did not record a win. Now, however, with the return of much of the first team, we are expected to see the Catalans at their familiar level and enjoy a spectacular game.
The last six games between these two teams were “over 2.5”. Especially in such games as the super-cup, it is usually given chance of the attacking football. Our main prediction will be “Barcelona to score first half” at 1.54. The odds are not very high, so there may be several more options.
- Barcelona to score both halves – 2.00
- BTTS and over 2.5 goals – 1.85
Messi will start. Malcolm and Arthur are ready, too. Vidal will be in the group
Sarabia and Vidal probably will start. Sevilla will have much stronger line up rather than their previous game.
