Barcelona endured a disappointing result last weekend when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Cadiz. However, Ronald Koeman’s side bounced back in style, beating relegation battlers Elche 3-0 earlier in the week, moving to third place in the process, five points below Atletico Madrid. With the league leaders facing a tricky away fixture against Villarreal, the Catalans will be hoping to move closer with a win. Sevilla, meanwhile, are just a couple of points and a place below Barcelona in La Liga, with a game in hand. Julen Lopetegui’s men have won ten of their last eleven games in all competitions, with the only loss coming in the UEFA Champions League against Borussia Dortmund. Having beaten Osasuna 2-0 in their last league game, the Nervionenses will have an eye on the third spot in the table.
Both have silverware on their mind with a spot in the Copa del Rey final at stake on Wednesday. Both are also comfortably in the top four in La Liga but with a chance to pull ahead in the race for next year’s Champions League with a win on Saturday. For Barca, beating Sevilla and taking the heat off this race would be significant in their rebuilding efforts, offering the chance to experiment and take chances the rest of the way. It won’t be easy with Sevilla on a six-game winning streak domestically, but a win would be a great way to build confidence ahead of the Copa semi-final.
ust 17 days ago, at the same venue, the two sides met in the Copa del Rey semi-final first leg with Sevilla running out 2-0 winners.
Jules Koundé and Ivan Rakitić scoring, the latter doing so against his former club.
Thus, los Nervionenses boast a healthy advantage going into the second leg at Camp Nou coming up on Wednesday.
In La Liga, the two sides are just one place apart.
Sevilla are healthy and confident and have a really good defense, but Barça have played well enough in the league since the start of 2021 to give us hope for a good performance and three big points. They haven’t played well in any big game this season, and two giant ones against the same tough opponent are ahead. But it obviously won’t be easy. Sevilla away is always a tough game for any La Liga team, and this has been a really good season for them under Julen Lopetegui. These are the two hottest teams in the league: with Sevilla having won their last six in Barça coming in on a 14-game unbeaten streak with eight wins in their last nine.
