Spanish La Liga: Barcelona vs. Sevilla

Barcelona and Sevilla square off in the highlight of Primera Division’s 7th round (3:00 p.m UK Time).

For the first time in many years, neither Barcelona nor Real Madrid is leading the Spanish Primera Division. Furthermore, Sevilla has sunk into the 15th place with just five points in six rounds, so the pressure is as high as it gets ahead of this key match. Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan will turn into a volcano as Barcelona comes visiting and past performance suggests a high scoring game at the venue.

Champions League Matches Take Their Toll

Sevilla has won Europa League on several occasions but this year, they have higher expectations and hope to survive the group stage in the Champions League. A convincing victory in the opening match helps a lot, but the most difficult games are yet to come, with Juventus and Manchester City being the top dogs in this group.

Meanwhile, all this European commotion is taking its toll as Sevilla lost back-to-back games before barely winning a domestic match against Rayo Vallecano. The home side is yet to solve its serious defensive woes and hadn’t it been for the goal scored in the last minutes of regulation time, the three points would’ve evaded them.

Barcelona Struggles to Keep Clean Sheets

The reigning champions used to push opponents into a corner and their relentless attacks and crushing ball possession gave the other teams few chances to mount convincing attacks. Everything has changed this month and in four consecutive games Barcelona failed to keep a single clean sheet and conceded a total of eight goals.

bet365 Sports makes a tempting proposition to those who want to bet on this match and are reluctant to wager on the winning team. The odds on more than 2.5 goals to be scored currently sit at 3/5, but they could go down as kickoff draws near. Sevilla fans have their team priced at 11/4, while backing the favorites Barcelona could result in the investment being doubled if the visitors prevail.
