Sevilla vs Barcelona Prediction & Match Preview

Sevilla

Barcelona

27 February 2021 16:15 CET La Liga Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan

All eyes will be on Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan when Sevilla and Barcelona take on each other in the La Liga derby. 

Los Sevillanos recorded a routine 2-0 win over Osasuna on Monday evening, with the team cementing their spot in top four. 

The Andalusians are eyeing their seventh consecutive win in the national championship, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. 

Both Ocampos and Acuna remain in the recovery room, while January signing Papu Gomez is pushing for a start.

Barca, on the other hand, dropped two points in an embarrassing 1-1 draw with Cadiz at the weekend. 

Ronald Koeman’s troops are eager to stay in the title race and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. 

All Araujo, Coutinho, Fati, and Roberto are likely to miss the game with injuries.

Papu Gomez is battling Munir El Haddadi for the spot on the left of the attack, while De Jong and Oliver Torres are likely to drop out to allow Rakitic and En-Nesyri to come into the XI.

As for Barca, Sergi Roberto, Ansu Fati, Ronald Araujo and Philippe Coutinho remain unavailable for selection, but the Catalan giants did not pick up any fresh injury or suspension issues against Elche.

Koeman shuffled his pack for Wednesday's affair, but the likes of Ousmane Dembele, Sergio Busquets, Clement Lenglet, Antoine Griezmann and Sergino Dest should return for this contest.

Gerard Pique and Alba were both substituted against Elche but are available for this match, while Pedri should keep his position alongside Frenkie de Jong in the middle of the park.

Bounou; Navas, Kounde, Carlos, Rekik; Jordan, Fernando, Rakitic; Suso, En-Nesyri, Munir
