Barcelona will be looking to make it three straight La Liga wins when they welcome Sevilla to Camp Nou on Sunday night.
The Catalan giants have struggled to show their best form in the early stages of the campaign but are only two points off division leaders Real Madrid, while Sevilla sit sixth on the same points as Barca.
The 2-0 loss at Granada on September 21 was a low point for the team, but the results since then have been impressive. Indeed, back-to-back wins over Villarreal and Getafe followed the two-goal defeat, before Luis Suarez netted twice in a 2-1 win over Inter Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Head to Head
The sides have taken each other on 61 times, with Barca leading with 36 wins to Sevilla’s 12. 13 draws have also been played out between the sides.
Sevilla will be looking to add another win to this record, which is heavily in favour of the Ernesto Valverde’s men.
JThe last time they played against each other, it ended with an impressive 4-2 away victory to Barcelona, led by a Lionel Messi hat-trick.
Possible Line Ups
Barcelona possible starting lineup: Ter Stegen; Roberto, Pique, Todibo, Semedo; Arthur, Busquets, De Jong; Griezmann, Suarez, Messi
Sevilla possible starting lineup: Vaclik; Navas, Carlos, Kounde, Reguilon; Banega, Fernando, Jordan; Ocampos, De Jong, Nolito
Sevilla are certainly capable of picking up a result at Camp Nou, although it is difficult to back against Barca due to their excellent record in this fixture. We fancy Valverde’s side to concede but to ultimately secure all three points, which would lead them nicely into the next international break.
