Barcelona: Unbeaten in 12 games
Xavi Hernandez continues to receive compliments for the great job he is currently doing as Barcelona manager. Already leading the Catalan giants from ninth place to third place in La Liga, Xavi’s tactical masterclass caught the soccer world’s attention.
The 4-0 victory against Real Madrid in El Clasico was a special one for the hosts with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring a brace and Ferran Torres and Ronald Araujo also contributing to the scoreboard. The progress under Xavi is real. He transformed Barcelona into a blend of creativity and attacking firepower.
Aubameyang has scored nine goals in his last eight games for Barcelona across all competitions while creating an amazing relationship on the pitch with Ferran Torres. Aubameyang has the characteristics of a traditional center-forward, but he also has the speed to go into space. He is a great striker and a great transfer for Barca. It has taken some time for the players to understand Xavi’s tactical approach but it is paying dividends. The high-pressing and intensity are back and Barcelona is getting better and better.
If they beat Sevilla they will move to second place in the standings, probably 12 points behind leaders Real Madrid with a game in hand on them. They need a miracle to catch the leaders because we have only nine games left till the end of the season but next season they will be serious title contenders.
They also have the chance to win the Europa League as they reached the quarter-finals. They will travel to play Eintracht Frankfurt next week but we don’t expect them to rest any important players against Sevilla so we will definitely include them in our Soccer picks and parlays.
Sevilla: The kings of draw games
Sevilla is the new Atletico Madrid as they transformed themselves into the best defensive side in the Spanish top-flight league. They allowed just 19 goals in 29 league games and they are sitting second in the standings. Unfortunately, they are struggling to find the back of the net lately, and they have the second-worst attack in the top seven.
They dropped too many points lately in their quest to catch Real Madrid, being kept to draw games by lower-ranked teams like Rayo Vallecano, Alaves, or Espanyol. Basically, they are the kings of draw games, recording 12 of them in 29 games, the most in the entire league.
Despite being just seven points above fifth-placed and city rival Betis, we don’t see them losing the Champions League spots but we expect them to return empty-handed from their trip to Barcelona. The international break was probably what they needed to recharge their batteries after scoring just one goal in their previous three fixtures.
For the visitors, all Suso, Acuna, Rafa Mir, Rekik, and Delaney will be out for this clash, remaining in the recovery room. That’s very important to know when you’re betting online. Sevilla is also out of the European competitions after failing to qualify for the Europa League quarter-finals, losing 2-0 to West Ham on the road. Their main objective is to focus on their domestic league and earn a top-four finish.
Barcelona vs Sevilla Head-to-Head
If we’re talking only about the league games, Sevilla’s last win against Barcelona came seven years ago when they managed to beat the Blaugrana 2-1 on home soil. They’ve never beat the hosts on the road in the last 27 years and we expect that trend to continue. Barcelona won eight of the last nine home mutual encounters against Sevilla, scoring at least two goals in each match. The hosts are one of the best home teams in the league with nine wins in 13 home games and 31 goals scored in the process while Sevilla managed to score just 12 goals in 15 away games.

Barcelona vs Sevilla Predictions
Barcelona is in great form at the moment and their recent results are amazing. They’ve earned 26 from a possible 30 points in their last 10 fixtures in La Liga, more than any other side in 2022. They enter this clash as huge favorites being priced at -225 on the three-way money line according to the latest Soccer odds while the goal line is set at 2½.
There’s no betting value on a straight home win so we are trying to dig deep and find another angle. A nice bet is Barcelona to score over 1½ goals on their own but that’s too juiced, being priced at -170. Given their amazing home record but also given Sevilla’s rock-solid defense we expect a home win combined with a maximum of three goals in the match. Sevilla tends to keep things tight at the back but Barcelona will push till they find a way to score, and they have the necessary weapons to do that.
