Barcelona vs Sevilla FC: Match Overview

Barcelona come across another team from Seville just days after dismantling Real Betis on a tactical level despite the 2-1 scoreline. This time, they face the Betis’s counterpart from the Seville derby, the red and whites of Sevilla FC.

The Catalans are currently enjoying a great domestic season under Xavi, producing masterful displays when winning some games, as well as showing grit and determination to pull out results in other games even when they fail to dominate as they typically like to. This winner’s mentality that Xavi has managed to cultivate in the team seems to have given them that missing edge that La Blaugrana were so desperately in need of to add that final puzzle to their approach this season.

With 4 wins and 1 draw out of their last 5 La Liga games, as well as 5 wins out of 5 games in terms of all competitions considered, FC Barcelona find themselves continuing through the season at an elite pace and consistency. Thus far in La Liga alone, Barcelona has managed to score 39 goals, the second-highest tally in the lead after Real Madrid’s 40, and have conceded only 7 goals in a total of 19 games, the best defensive record amongst all 5 top European leagues.

Sevilla, on the other hand, had a rather turbulent first half of the season. Currently sitting 13th in the La Liga table after 19 games, they have thus far only accumulated 21 total points compared to Barcelona’s goliath of 50.

However, the team from Seville have found a reignition of sorts in recent games under manager Jorge Sampaoli, having 3 wins out of their last 4 games, and are beginning to look much more dangerous than they seemed to be capable of earlier in the season.

La Blaugrana will have to be at their very best, and reportedly will look to deploy their strongest possible eleven keeping in mind the break the players will get following this game, to come out of this clash with all 3 points to maintain their lead at the top of the La Liga table.
