Barcelona welcome Sevilla to the Camp Nou on Sunday in the standout fixture among this week’s La Liga games.

Julen Lopetegui’s men are second in the table, nine points adrift of league leaders Real Madrid and three ahead of Xavi’s side having played a game more.

However, Barcelona are the league’s in-form team and will seek to continue their momentum as they look to haul themselves back into the title picture.

Camp Nou

To Win
Barcelona 9/20 | Draw 33/10 | Sevilla 54/10


Barcelona will be strong favourites to win this tie, they are the in-form side, playing in front of their home fans. Xavi’s side have racked up five wins in a row, a run that has seen them soar up the table to give them an outside chance of fighting for the title.

The creativity of Ousmane Dembele, the scoring form of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the youthful exuberance of Pedri, Ferran Torres and Eric Garcia have made Barcelona the league’s form team. Not only are they winning, they are winning well.

High on confidence following their impressive string of performances, the Blaugrana will be expecting nothing less than three points against a Sevilla side who haven’t won at the Camp Nou since 2002.


The Rojiblancos will have their task cut out against a Barcelona side who just thrashed Real Madrid 4-0 in their own backyard before the international break. But Lopetegui’s side know they are fully capable of pulling off an upset.

Sevilla have gone 15 league games without a loss but too many draws have hampered them. The Andalusian side failed to win a league game last month with back-to-back away draws against bottom-half sides Alaves and Rayo Vallecano, while they were held at home by Real Sociedad last time out.

Sevilla have been underwhelming of late and Lopetegui will know his side need to be alert right from kickoff as Barca will aim to come out guns blazing. One thing’s for sure: it would take a near-perfect performance to leave the Camp Nou with all three points.

Prediction: Barcelona (9/20)

Everything points to a win for Barcelona. They are the in-form side with home advantage and haven’t lost at home in the league to Sevilla since 2002. Ferran Torres has been in red-hot form, scoring in all three of Barca’s La Liga matches last month, while he was also on target for Spain in their 2-1 win over Albania last weekend.
