Prediction and odds for the game: Barcelona (9/20) vs Sevilla (11/2)
We are backing the draw at odds of 15/4
When: Sunday 3 April 2022, Kick-off 20:00
Where: The Nou Camp
On Sunday night, in-form Barcelona hosts Sevilla at the Nou Camp in what could be one of the most intriguing matches of the Spanish football weekend.
The Catalan giants have roared into form and up the table in recent months under club legend Xavi Hernandez. Their form has been such that a victory in this clash would move the Blaugrana above Sunday night’s second-place opponents in the table.
Xavi’s team head into this clash 13 matches undefeated in the Spanish top flight. They have also won their last five matches in La Liga. In their last La Liga match, Barcelona hammered arch-rivals Real Madrid 4-0 on home soil.
Their potent attacking play has played a pivotal role in their recent stellar league form, as Barcelona have scored two or more goals in their last seven matches in the Spanish top-flight.
The Catalan giants also have a strong recent home record, having recorded four consecutive home wins in the Spanish top-flight. Their potent attacking play has also been fully illustrated in their recent home games, as Barcelona has scored at least three goals in their last four league matches at the Camp Nou.
The Andalusians are 15 games undefeated in La Liga since a defeat by league leaders Real Madrid. However, Julen Lopetegui’s team has fallen nine points behind Los Blancos in the title race due to far too many draws of late.
The visitors have drawn seven of their previous ten away games in La Liga, which includes drawing four of their last five league games on their travels in the Spanish top-flight. In their last league game, Real Sociedad held Los Rojiblancos to a goalless draw at the Sanchez Pizjuan.
Sevilla are undefeated in their last seven away games in the Spanish top-flight. However, the visitors have drawn their last five away games in La Liga, with their last seven matches on their travels producing under 2.5 goals.
The fact that Sevilla has the best defence in La Liga has been one of the key factors in their recent low-scoring games on their travels. They have conceded six goals fewer in La Liga than the second-best defence in La Liga, league leaders Real Madrid.
Barcelona are in outstanding form, but Sevilla are such a difficult team to beat. The game pits the second most prolific attack in the league against the best defence. Sevilla’s stubborn defence could well be a match for the home team’s fearsome attack. With that in mind, we are backing the draw and under 2.5 goals scored.
Our Tips: We are backing the draw at odds of 15/4 and/or under 2.5 goals scored at evens. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
