Barcelona vs Sevilla FC Preview

Barcelona vs Sevilla FC

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio Camp Nou

Date: 20th October 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Top of the table clashes in La Liga are usually between Barcelona and Real Madrid, but this game is one that it is being played between Barca and a Sevilla side that many expect to be fighting for a top six position this season.

Performances have been poor between Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Atletico Madrid this season that top of the table Sevilla could get the chance to finish inside the La Liga top four this season.

The Catalans have had an up-and-down domestic season so far despite shining in Europe.

They have won just four of eight league games while losing to the unfancied Leganes three weeks ago.

Barca head into this game without a win in their last 4 league games, so their fans will be looking for a home win here.

Barcelona can reclaim top spot on the table with a win here.

Sevilla fans have been delighted by the football their team has been playing this season.

They currently top the standings in La Liga and are heading into this game on a fine run of form.

Sevilla come into this game on a run of four straight league wins including a 3-0 thrashing of Real Madrid.

They have netted 14 times and conceded just 4 times in those matches.

This game represents a tougher challenge, but they showed last season that they are one of the teams that can expose Barcelona and they will look to do that here again.

Bookmakers have priced Barcelona up very short giving Sevilla seemingly no chance based on the odds.

Goal markets suggest this will be a goal feast as over 2.5 goals is trading long odds-on.

This game gets underway at 19:45 GMT.
