Barcelona vs Sevilla betting tips: La Liga preview, predictions and odds

Barcelona are unbeaten in three meetings with Sevilla, including a Copa del Rey remontada 13 months ago. Overall, Sevilla are winless in 17 visitors to Camp Nou, losing 15, dating back to a Copa victory 12 years ago. Their last league win at the stadium was 20 years ago.

Barcelona to win and over 2.5 goals is 5/4.

Barcelona to win and both teams to score NO is 13/10.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored nine times for Barca, an average of a goal every 79 minutes. He is 3/1 to break the deadlock and 10/11 to add to his tally.

Match preview

After one of the most memorable, extraordinary and unexpected Clásico victories, will Barcelona continuing their winning run?

A fortnight ago, Barça ran riot at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, leaving 4-0 winners and, in truth, they could easily have scored six or seven.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang bagging a brace while Ronald Araújo and Ferran Torres were also on target, all in the first 53 minutes.

This was a shock given that Barça kicked off 15 points below Real and, even if they win their game in hand against Rayo, that gap to the leaders would still be nine.

However, Xavi's side are now unbeaten in 13 league games, including winning the last five in a row, in which they've scored 18 goals.

While the league title might just be out of reach, they're still involved in the Europa League and visit Eintracht Frankfurt this forthcoming Thursday.

Despite all the doom and gloom from earlier in the season, everything is going Barcelona's way just now, so another win seems a formality.

Sevilla are actually above Barcelona in the table, for now at least, but are enduring possibly the most underwhelming unbeaten run of all time.

In La Liga, los Nervionenses haven't lost since 28 November but have fallen away from the title race courtesy of seven draws from their last nine.

In this time too, Julen Lopetegui's side have been knocked out the Copa del Rey by Real Betis and, more recently, the Europa League at West Ham.

So, what could've been the greatest season in los Hispalenses' history, could end with them missing out on a top four place all together.

With Barça, Atleti and, to a lesser extent, Betis, Real Sociedad and Villarreal in hot pursuit, Sevilla need to find form and fast.

It's unlikely to come here though with Barcelona surely going to romp to a victory.

Barcelona team news

Despite the fact Thursday's trip to Germany is ostensibly the bigger game, Xavi now has options and can pick a strong side, even if he wants to rotate a bit.

Given that Dani Alves wasn't added to the UEFA squad in January, and the fact that Sergiño Dest is injured, means the 38 year old will start here.

Eric García got the nod at centre-back in the Clásico so could keep his place alongside Gerard Piqué, chosen over Óscar Mingueza.

In attack, Ousmane Dembélé, Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang appears to be the first-choice striker force.

But, Adama Traoré and Memphis are viable alternatives, not forgetting Luuk de Jong who is on loan from Sevilla.

Sevilla team news

Speaking of loanee centre-forwards, Anthony Martial hasn't done that much in a Sevilla shirt, but could continue to get the nod over Youssef En-Nesyri.

Érik Lamela came off the bench in the goalless draw against Real Sociedad for his first appearance since 7 November due to a shoulder injury.

Papu Gómez and Fernando are injured while fellow midfielder Thomas Delaney is out after hobbling off for Denmark against Netherlands last weekend.

Further back, with Diego Carlos and Karim Rekik out, midfielder Nemanja Gudelj will continue to partner Jules Koundé.
