Sevilla – Barcelona, La Liga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR SEVILLA - BARCELONA
Sevilla proved their class in Europa League and managed to eliminate Lazio after a new victory to 0, this time with 2 goals difference. They should play like that in La Liga right now against Barcelona, because Sevilla have just 1 point more than Getafe, but they are in a weak form in the league. If they manage to defeat Barca, this may be the path to the revival, because then there are not so difficult matches in the league, and for Sevilla it is extremely important to keep their place in the Top 4.
Barcelona was not happy with the zero draw against Lyon. They attacked almost the entire game, but the French just made their post something unreachable. Barca won their last match from La Liga comfortably a few weeks ago, but received an unexpected gift from Girona the next day who won against Real M. So Barca’s lead in front of the second, Atletico, is 7 points.
Sevilla and Barcelona are rivals who have always scored many goals. Some Barca games have not been so high goal scoring lately, but it has happened against teams with a far more defensive approach than Sevilla. Hosts are required to seek victory. Sevilla have not scored a goal as host against Barcelona last in 2012. Our prediction here is BTTS at 1.53 and we think this is the safest bet. But you can try directly BTTS+ over 2.5 goals at 1.75.
- Sevilla has only 1 home loss and scored a goal in nine of their last 11 home games
- Barca has no clean sheet as a guest against a team over 10th place
