Barcelona are set to play Sevilla at Camp Nou on Sunday for their next La Liga fixture.

Barcelona come into this game on the back of a 4-0 win over Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid in their most recent game. A brace from Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and goals from Uruguayan centre-back Ronald Araujo and attacker Ferran Torres sealed the deal for Xavi’s Barcelona.

Sevilla, on the other hand, drew 0-0 against Imanol Alguacil’s Real Sociedad in La Liga. Sevilla failed to register a shot on target, compared to Real Sociedad’s two.

Barcelona vs Sevilla Prediction

Barcelona were seemingly swimming in problems until recently, but the arrival of Xavi has acted as a balm throughout the club. The legendary midfielder has steadied the ship exceedingly well, and Barcelona have produced some stunning performances already under his management. Of course, the 4-0 thrashing of Real Madrid is comfortably Barcelona’s best performance under Xavi.

January saw Barcelona sign three attackers, and all three have proven to be worth the money. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Adama Traore and Ferran Torres have all impressed to varying degrees. Combine that with the wealth of young talent that Barcelona possess, in the form of Gavi, Pedri, Ansu Fati and Ronald Araujo means that the club look secure, all of a sudden.

Sergio Busquets tells @EsportsRAC1: “I’d love Leo Messi to come back here at Barcelona – but it’s gonna be hard as he’s under contract with Paris Saint-Germain”. 🇪🇸 #FCBMessage for Gavi and Araújo? “Who leaves Barcelona will regret it”, Busquets added.

They are currently 3rd in the league, 12 points behind league leaders Real Madrid, who have played a game more. One can only imagine where Barcelona would have been had Xavi been at the helm for a longer period of time.

Sevilla, on the other hand, are 2nd in the league, three points ahead of Barcelona, who have a game in hand. Manager Julen Lopetegui has attracted attention from Manchester United in recent months, while the club boasts talents like Jules Kounde and Rafa Mir.

Barcelona to win.
