This weekend, Barcelona will have the opportunity to make their way up the table. 1st placed Real Madrid take on 2nd placed Granada on Saturday. With at least one team guaranteed to drop points, Barcelona will be determined to take all 3 points this Sunday.
Barcelona haven’t been very solid defensively this season. They kept their first La Liga clean sheet of the season last weekend vs Getafe. Barcelona have won ten straight La Liga (LL) matches at Camp Nou, but the impressive stats don’t stop there! The ‘Blaugranes’ have also had the win wrapped up before the hour mark in each of their last five league victories across all venues, while going 2-0 up inside 15 minutes in their last two LL home games.
Despite being odds-on favourites, Barcelona cannot get complacent, especially when an interval is looming. Significantly, they have conceded three of the last four league goals scored against them at Camp Nou inside the final 15 minutes of either half.
Jordi Alba and Junior Firpo are both injured for Barcelona, which will lead to Nelson Semedo filling in at left-back. Jean-Clair Todibo should partner Gerard Pique at centre-back for the hosts, given that Samuel Umtiti is still struggling with an injury.
Barcelona is ranked on the 2nd place in the standings with 90 points, 116 goals scored and 37 goals received in the last 38 leagueevents. They have failed to win 4 of their last 38 matches in La Liga.In their last match they won against Eibar. Barcelona has an excellent form, they are undefeated in their last 5 games before this game with Sevilla.
FC Barcelona Predicted Line Ups: Ter Stegen – Semedo, Pique, Todibo, Roberto – Busquets, Arthur, de Jong – Messi, Suarez, Griezmann (4-3-3)

Sevilla will attempt to stand in Barcelona’s way of moving up the table this weekend. These two teams are level on 13 points at present. This Sunday evening game is likely to deliver an exciting end to this weekend’s La Liga action.
Sevilla had a low-scoring start to the season. They appeared to be suffering in the absence of Yassin Ben-Yedder and Pablo Sarabia, who left the club last summer. They managed to score just 5 goals from their opening 5 La Liga games.
Sevilla have scored 5 goals in their last 2 La Liga games. They have doubled their goal tally for their opening 7 games, in their last 2. This is encouraging for them ahead of their trip to the Camp Nou. Sevilla have never enjoyed their trips to the Camp Nou. Barcelona are impressively 15 games unbeaten at home vs Sevilla. The last time Sevilla won at the Camp Nou was January 2010.
This is something that visitors Sevilla could exploit, given that they have scored the decisive goal in the 31st-45th minute period, or beyond the 75th minute, in four of their last five league victories. A win will see them go three points clear of Barcelona.
Unfortunately for Sevilla, they visit after seven straight LL losses here, losing the first half to nil on five occasions. Furthermore, since the start of 2018/19, Sevilla have lost 50% of their away league matches entered as an outsider (W1, D2, L3).
Daniel Carrico is still an injury doubt for the away side, which could see Jules Kounde partner Diego Carlos at centre-back. Oliver Torres and Joan Jordan will battle it out to round off Sevilla's midfield alongside Fernando and Ever Banega.
Sevilla are ranked on the 4th place in the standings with 72 points, 69 goals scored and 49 goals received this season in La Liga.In their last match they won against Osasuna. Sevilla lost 2 of their last 5 matches before this match with Barcelona.
Sevilla FC Predicted Line Ups: Vaclik – Reguilon, Kounde, Carlos, Navas – Fernando, Banega, Jordan – Nolito, de Jong, Ocampos (4-3-3)
|Lucas Ocampos Sevilla FC Key Player|
