Barcelona vs Sevilla should be one of the most interesting and thrilling games of Sunday at Round 8 of Spanish La Liga. This match will be held at Camp Nou, in Barcelona. Both are among leaders this season in the Primeira, and after this game, lots of positions can be changed. Will Barcelona take 5th in a row win at home this season, or Sevilla will take at least 1 point? This game should be very important for both! Read our thoughts about this great clash between two La Liga Giants Barcelona vs Sevilla, here below.

These teams met very often this season and already this year they played 3 times. Barca won 3 out of 3 matches over Sevilla, as Catalonians became champions of Super Cup, 4:2 won in La Liga and won Quarter-final of Copa del Rey. Sevilla won only once against Barcelona during the 14 meetings. However, this season everything can change, as both teams struggling, so both have great opportunities to use weaknesses of the opponent. Sevilla lost 6 times in a row while playing in Barcelona.

Barcelona

Barcelona struggling at the beginning of the season. They stand now at 4th place in La Liga, however, already lost twice against Granada and Athletic Bilbao. Moreover, they conceding at least 1 goal in already 8 games in different competitions including friendly matches. The newcomer Griezmann scored already 3 goals and made 2 assists. That’s a result which all Barcelona fans wanted from him. Especially, now, when Barcelona often playing without Lionel Messi.

On Wednesday, Blaugrana played against Internazionale in the group stage of UEFA Champions League. Even conceding first, they were strong enough to make a comeback, thanks to Luis Suarez double. Barcelona controlled 63% of possession and created much more dangerous moments. Even one of the strongest Italian defences couldn’t stand against such a strong and fast attacking lineup. In general, hosts have weak sides, which can be used by their constant rivals Sevilla already this Sunday.

Samuel Umtiti, Jordi Alba, Junior Firpo and young super-talent Ansu Fati will miss next game due to injuries.

Sevilla

While Barcelona playing in Champions League, Sevilla trying their best in Europa League, and they do it very well. They won already 2 games over APOEL and Qarabag scoring in total 4 and conceding 0 goals. Newcomer Mexican Chicharito already scored 2 in EL, however, still can’t open his scoreboard in LL. In general, Lapetegui called lots of new players, and everyone worth to be tested even against the strongest opponents in different competitions.

Sevilla now stands at 6th place, however, they have an absolutely equal amount of points with Barcelona. So this game should be very important by showing their season plans and abilities they brought together with new stars. Julen Lopetegui’s team also lost twice this season, against Real Madrid and then surprisingly against Eibar. But still everything is ahead, and they can reach the first place, in which Real Madrid, as there are only 2 points between them. For comparison, in England, Liverpool is 7 points ahead of even 3rd place. Of course, Sevilla shows very beautiful football, but Barcelona should be very motivated taking 3 importation points and continuing the fight for 1st place also.
