Sevilla vs Barcelona Match Preview and Team News
Tuesday will see a great match in La Liga as title hopefuls Sevilla host Barcelona in La Liga for a match which was originally scheduled to be played on matchday four. Sevilla is flying high in the league and currently finds themselves second, trailing Real Madrid by six points. They are coming off a big 2-1 victory against Atletico in their last match, which saw them net an 88th-minute winner thanks to Lucas Ocampos. FC Barcelona travels to the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan stadium in seventh place as they look to build consistency under manager Xavi. The visitors are coming off a late winner of their own, scoring in the 85th minute to defeat Elche 3-2 after having squandered a two-goal advantage. Barcelona now has three wins, two draws, and two defeats with the Blaugrana legend as manager of the club. Nemanja Gudelj is a tremendous defensive midfielder who knows what he is doing at all times, he is strong, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy, and he deserves praise. Papu Gomez is a guy who causes many problems to the opponent on the left side. He is fast and is unstoppable in a one-on-one game.
Sevilla has been on an impressive run as of late, winning three straight in La Liga since losing 2-1 away to Madrid at the end of November. However, they were incredibly fortunate to have recorded victories in those matches as they were comprehensively outplayed by Villareal and Athletic Club – with the two sides combining for a total of six clear-cut chances as opposed to Sevilla’s one. Atletico as well did enough where they should have at least earned a point in their most recent match. Barcelona has shown flashes under Xavi’s system, and there have been some encouraging performances, but the Catalans need to straighten out their defensive issues as they have been quite leaky at the back. Memphis Depay is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, and he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. Gavi showed that he is a great player, he moves well and cooperates with the attackers, all praise for him.
