They met twice in February, Sevilla winning 2-0 at home in the semi-finals 1st leg before a 2-0 defeat at Camp Nou in La Liga.

Barcelona Form


Barcelona have won nine of their last 10 matches in La Liga to get back into title contention. 

The Catalan club suffered a disappointing 4-1 home defeat to PSG in the UEFA Champions League. Barca then drew 1-1 against Cadiz after having 81% possession and 20-3 shots, conceding an 89th minute penalty.

Ronald Koeman’s side won 3-0 against Elche with Lionel Messi bagging a brace and Jordi Alba wrapping it up. 

Barcelona won 2-0 at Sevilla on Saturday as Koeman lined up with three central defenders. Messi assisted Ousmane Dembélé for the opener before scoring himself to make it 7 goals in his last 5 matches in all competitions.

Barcelona Injuries & Team News


Barcelona centre-back Ronald Araujo, right back Moussa Wagué and the versatile Sergi Roberto are injured.

Midfielders Miralem Pjanić, Pedri, attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho and forward Ansu Fati are also injured.

Sevilla Form


Sevilla had won eight straight matches in all competitions including seven to nil, but have shown some weaknesses in recent weeks.

Julen Lopetegui’s side hosted Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League, losing 3-2 after some uncharacteristically poor defending.

Sevilla bounced back with a 2-0 win at Osasuna before hosting Barcelona on Saturday. They were toothless in attack, going down 2-0 after registering just 0.12 expected goals.

Sevilla Injuries & Team News


Left back Marcos Acuña and winger Lucas Ocampos are injured.

Expect some changes here with Suso and Youssef En-Nesyri to return to the starting side.
