Sevilla vs Barcelona
Spain – La Liga
Date: Saturday, 27 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:15 UK/ 16:15 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan (Sevilla).
Luck has changed for Sevilla for good as they experience a seven-game winning streak in La Liga and nine out of ten wins across all major competitions in their schedule. Their only loss was against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League. They will return home after a 0-2 win on the road against Osasuna and are likely to test the visitors.
Not long after their defeat to Sevilla in the Copa del Ray, Barcelona will visit again and try their luck in La Liga. Barca let their guard down twice in the last week against PSG in the Champions League and Cadiz in La Liga. The Catalans will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw at home with Cadiz, showing a shaky defense even at Camp Nou.
Sevilla vs Barcelona Head-to-head (h2h)
- Two of their recent three matches since 2020 have ended in a draw.
- Both teams have scored only twice in their recent five fixtures.
- Their previous encounter in CDR gave a 2-0 home win for Sevilla.
- The visitor has recorded three of their last five overall wins since 2019.
- The Catalans are unbeaten in their previous ten clashes in La Liga.
Sevilla vs Barcelona Prediction
Barcelona is one of the top teams in the league, and there is no doubt for their squad strength in the middle and their reign in recent years. However, changes in the team have caused problems at the back under the new manager Koeman as the Catalans are struggling to keep a clean sheet.
Sevilla has been on a dream run in the league this season and is also a point ahead of Barca on the table as it stands. The match is sizing to be a draw in full-time, but the presence of Lionel Messi in the squad proves to be a slight edge for the traveling side in the upcoming match.
The recent winless games in their schedule and habit of dropping points away from home will cause problems for Koeman and his men. The host has won none of their last ten h2h clashes with Barca in the La Liga, which is why the double chance favoring Barcelona will probably be the best bet.
