Sevilla will travel to Camp Nou to face Barcelona, a ground where they have not won since a Copa Del Rey encounter in 2010, twelve years ago. Only three points separate both teams, and Barca also have a game in hand. The match is scheduled for the 4th of April, and the kickoff time is set at 00:30 IST. 

Barcelona have not lost in their last 12 matches in all competitions, with their recent success in the El Clásico a highlight of how much they have improved under Xavi’s tutelage. Sevilla are second in La Liga, three points ahead of Barca, and they travel knowing that a loss to Barcelona will see them lose second place to the Blaugrana. A lot is on the line for both teams, and we expect a tight contest at Camp Nou.

Teams Status

Take a look at the latest form and team news from Barcelona and Sevilla:

Barcelona Form and Team News

El Clásico’s success has Barcelona brimming with confidence, and the win was well deserved, as the Blaugrana have easily been the best team in La Liga in recent weeks. With no losses in 13 league games, Barcelona have clawed their way up to third in the league, just three points behind Sevilla and level on points with Atlético Madrid.

Barcelona have 15 wins, 9 draws, and 4 losses in 28 games, with 9 of those wins coming in an unbeaten league run that dates back to December. They have scored 56 goals and conceded 29, with Memphis Depay still topping the scoring charts for Barcelona with 10 goals and 2 assists. A bright spot in Barca’s recent form is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has scored 7 goals and created 1, even as a January signing.

Sergino Dest, Samuel Umtiti, Sergi Roberto, and Ansu Fati are still injured for Barcelona and unlikely to feature in this fixture.

Sevilla Form and Team News

Four draws and one victory in their last 5 league matches tell the story of Sevilla’s campaign so far. They have lost just twice all season but have found it hard to win games, with 15 wins, 12 draws, and 2 losses in 29 matches. They have conceded the least number of goals for any team in the league and are placed second but have dropped over 24 points due to draws this season.

Having 40 goals scored and 19 conceded, Sevilla will see their position threatened by a rejuvenated Barcelona and Atlético Madrid, who are both 3 points behind them. They travel to Barcelona knowing that only a win or a draw will see them keep their place and stay in touch with Real Madrid at the top of the log. Rafa Mir has scored the most goals for the Seville outfit this season with 8 league goals.

Rafa Mir, Suso, Fernando Reges, Gomez Papu, Thomas Delaney, Karim Rekik, Carlos Diego, and Marcos Acuna have picked up knocks and are doubtful for the trip to Barcelona.

Statistics play a prominent role as Barcelona are heavy favorites to win this fixture. Sevilla have not won at Camp Nou in 12 years, losing all but two of the 29 encounters that followed that win. On the sportsbook, Barcelona to win is placed at 1.48 odds, a draw is at 4.40 odds, and Sevilla to win is at 7.00.

The Paripesa sportsbook places Barca to win at 1.49 odds, with the odds for a draw and Sevilla winning at 4.68 and 7.60, respectively. On the Parimatch sportsbook, the odds for all three outcomes are 1.50, 4.50, and 7.50, respectively.

Tipster’s Angle

From the head-to-head record between these two teams, Barca have come out on top in 5 of their last 10 meetings, with Sevilla winning twice and the rest ending in draws. 

Sevilla will lose the second spot if they continue to drop points, but a lack of success at Camp Nou in 12 years is worrying, even for a Sevilla side that have conceded the least goals in the league. Barcelona are on a 12-match unbeaten streak (9 wins and 3 draws) and have dominated games even against top opposition. 

Here are our tips for this fixture:

Tip: Barcelona to Win or Draw @ 1.118

Barcelona are playing their usual brand of football and have been largely successful and dominant in recent weeks. They play at home to Sevilla, where the away side have a history of losing 18 of the last 20 visits. 

Barcelona are in better form than their rivals and will fancy taking all three points from this encounter. Barcelona to win or draw is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.118 odds.

Tip: Draw in Either Half @ 1.616

Sevilla are somewhat accustomed to draws, having recorded 12 already this season. They are the more conservative of the two teams, with a sturdy defensive play that several teams struggle against. We expect this fixture to start on a slow note and either half to end in a draw. Draw in Either half is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.616 odds.


As we enter the business end of La Liga, Barcelona have picked up much-needed form and will hope to leapfrog Sevilla if they come out on top. Sevilla have lost just two games all season and will be difficult to break down. We expect a lively game at Camp Nou.
