Barcelona come into this match looking to extend their amazing run of form. They are up against Sevilla who could pose one of the biggest threats for Barcelona. Manager Ernesto Valverde has already been able to see his team score plenty of goals. However, there is an onus on Barcelona to keep the winning run going as they might just be able to seal the title with a huge advantage. Even at this game being just a few months into the new season, the Catalan outfit have the opportunity to establish an 11 point advantage over Real Madrid.
Meanwhile, Sevilla are hoping to get back into the top four places. It is truly becoming a tough competition in the La Liga, as teams like Real Madrid have not been winning as expected. Sevilla have the opportunity to step up to the plate, but the club have so far been unable to do so. Recent matches, however, appear to indicate otherwise.
Barcelona are overwhelming favourites to get a victory in this game as they have been quite strong when it comes to matches against Sevilla. Valverde has admitted that he is not concerned about the team being unable to score in the Champions League after five years, but there are signs of Barcelona not being able to score the huge number of goals like they did a few months ago. After having watched Barcelona suffer against the tight defence of Olympiakos, Sevilla can be expected to adopt the same at the back. Sevilla are generally a strong defensive team and they have played in only a few number of goals – compared to the opposition.
A match at the Camp Nou almost invariably points out to a win for Barcelona. Even though Sevilla are a strong opponent, this game could only go one way.
