About the match

Barcelona’s failure to qualify for the knockout round of the Champions League was a huge blow to the club, but aside from the European disappointment, the team have been excellent for much of this campaign.

Xavi‘s side have already secured their first trophy of 2022-23, lifting the Spanish Super Cup last month, while they are chasing success in three more competitions, including the Europa League, where they will take on Manchester United in a two-legged knockout round playoff later this month.

Barcelona will face Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey, while they are currently in pole position in the La Liga table, sitting top, five points clear of second-placed Real Madrid on the same number of games (19).

The Catalan giants have won each of their last four league games against Atletico Madrid, Getafe, Girona and Real Betis, beating the latter 2-1 on Wednesday night, with Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski netting in the second half of the contest in Seville.

Barcelona will face Sevilla and Villarreal in their next two league matches before welcoming Man United for the first leg of their Europa League knockout round playoff on February 16.

Xavi’s team have the best home record in La Liga this season, picking up 23 points from nine matches, and they will be welcoming a Sevilla outfit who have collected just nine points from nine games on their travels.

Not too long ago, Sevilla were in the relegation zone, but three wins from their last four league matches has allowed them to move into 13th spot in the table on 21 points.

side have overcome Getafe, Cadiz and Elche in three of their last four games, beating the latter 3-0 last time out to rise up the table, but it is still so tight towards the bottom.

Indeed, there are only three points between 18th-placed Cadiz and Almeria in 11th, so the picture could change so quickly, and Sevilla are actually now just five points behind ninth-placed Athletic Bilbao.

Los Nervionenses have finished fourth in each of their last three campaigns, but they are 13 points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid at this stage, so it is very difficult to imagine them picking up enough points over the next few months to put themselves in contention for a Champions League spot.

Sevilla’s relegation fears have been eased, but they are only two points ahead of 18th-placed Cadiz, and they now face a match with the best side in the division, at least according to the league table.

Barcelona recorded a 3-0 victory at Estadio Ramon earlier this season, while they have not lost to Sevilla in Spain’s top flight since October 2015, which is an indication of the size of the away side’s task here.
