Focusing on Goals: 3 Ways to Bet on Sevilla vs Barcelona

Sevilla failed to meet expectations this season. They have been playing well at home, but our sportsbook doesn’t think that’s enough, with the team listed at a +290 betting line on Sunday vs Barcelona.

Barcelona already secured the league’s second place, winning their last three games with a 7-0 aggregate.

Sevilla vs Barcelona Odds and Spreads


 

Home Record + Youssef En-Nesyri? Bet Over in Sevilla’s Team Total

Sevilla is winless in its last three games, losing 3-2 to Villarreal, 1-0 to Cadiz, and 2-0 to Athletic Club. However, Sevilla only lost two of its last seven games at home, scoring in all games but one.

That’s one of the only two reasons to consider betting on Sevilla. The other is Youssef En-Nesyri. He has scored 17 goals in all competitions, scoring four in Sevilla’s last seven games.

Sergio Ramos leads Sevilla’s defensive unit, while Marcos Acuna and Jesus Navas lead the midfield. Up front, besides En-Nesyri, there’s Dodi Lukebakio, who has scored five goals in La Liga.

Losing to Barcelona could send Sevilla to 15th place. They can’t fall into the relegation zone, but there’s no doubt that finishing closer to the relegation zone than the top 10 would be humiliating. After all, we’re talking about a team that has won the UEFA Europa League seven times.

Regardless of the result, you should include Sevilla scoring over 1½ goals at +152 in your La Liga picks. Los Rojiblancos did exactly that in three of their last five games at Sanchez-Pizjuan.

 

Sevilla vs Barcelona Betting Tips

  • Barcelona is 8-9-1 ATS on the road.

 

Xavi Out at Barca?

Midseason, Xavi Hernandez announced he wouldn’t return as Barcelona head coach. A month ago, President Joan Laporta said Hernandez would stay since he managed to turn things around. Well, last week, the former midfielder said some things that the board of directors didn’t like and it’s very likely that Sunday’s game will be his last.


Hernandez did well despite Barcelona’s inability to sign huge superstars due to the financial fair play. Even so, after losing to Villarreal, Real Madrid, and Girona, they were left out of the title race.

Securing second place in the league means they qualified for the Spanish Super Cup. Most recently, they won 3-0 against Rayo Vallecano, with Robert Lewandowski and Pedri Gonzalez as the scorers. Gonzalez scored a brace, which allowed him to regain a lot of confidence after suffering tremendously due to injuries.


Los Azulgranas also won their last road match against Almeria, 2-0. Fermin Lopez scored twice, which leads me to the main reason for Barcelona to be in control of the La Liga lines against Sevilla: the depth of its roster.

You can also expect Barcelona to score more than 1½ goals here, as they scored two goals in its last six games. Expect this match to turn into a goal-fest, making the Over 3 goals for the match a great online bet today.
