Barcelona vs Sevilla Prediction & Match Preview

Barcelona

Sevilla

3 March 2021 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET Copa Del Rey Camp Nou

All eyes will be on Camp Nou when Barcelona and Sevilla go head to head in the Copa del Rey semis, return leg. 


Ronald Koeman’s troops did well to beat Sevilla 2-0 in La Liga at the weekend, and, no doubt, the Catalans are high on confidence ahead of Wednesday’s clash. 

Talented midfielder Pedri, who suffered an injury in the 2-0 win over los Sevillanos, has joined the likes of Coutinho, Fati, Pjanic, and Roberto in the recovery room.

As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Leo Messi, who found the net in Saturday’s La Liga match. 

Julen Lopetegui’s troops, on the other hand, are on a quest to defend their two-goal advantage in the return leg. 

Sevilla, though, failed to impress in the La Liga defeat to Barca, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. 

Both Acuna and Ocampos are likely to miss the game through injuries for the visiting team.

As for Sevilla, Marcos Acuna and Lucas Ocampos will not be back from injury in time for this cup tie.

Suso, Oliver Torres and Youssef En-Nesyri were all brought off the bench against Barca on Saturday and are each in contention to start this one.
