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.
