Barcelona vs Sevilla Preview – Prediction, how to watch & potential line-ups

Sunday’s La Liga action closes out at the Spotify Camp Nou as Barcelona and Sevilla go head-to-head in a lopsided heavyweight contest.

After opening the new calendar year with a hat-trick of 1-0 wins, Xavi Hernandez’s side dispatched Real Betis 2-1 on Wednesday to maintain a five-point lead at the summit. 

Having won four consecutive top-flight games by a single-goal margin for the first time in the club’s history, the Blaugrana come into this matchday with 50 points to their name.

Four of the last five times they have had at least 50 points at this stage of the season, they have won the title, so they have a piece of history backing their claim for a first La Liga triumph since 2018/19.

In other circumstances, Sevilla would be a viable candidate to knock Barcelona off their perch, yet the visitors have endured a stuttering league campaign thus far.

Despite winning back-to-back La Liga matches for the first time this season, Los Rojiblancos are still only two points clear of 18th-placed Cadiz, so they can ill-afford to rest on their laurels. 

A 3-0 home romping of whipping boys Elche last weekend offered Jorge Sampaoli’s side a morale boost ahead of this trip, as they now aim at scoring 2+ goals in consecutive league games for the first time this term.

Match Preview


Still yet to lose at home in La Liga this season (W7, D2), Barcelona have netted an average of 2.37 goals per game in their last eight home league outings since a goalless draw against Rayo Vallecano on matchday one. 

Except for Joselu’s penalty in a 1-1 stalemate at the turn of the year, Xavi’s men have kept a clean sheet in their remaining eight league games at Camp Nou this term, which bodes well for their effort to sink Sevilla again.

An overwhelming 3-0 victory in the reverse fixture in September extended Barcelona’s unbeaten league run against the Andalusian outfit to 14 matches (W10, D4), which promises a one-sided affair. 


Speaking of one-sided affairs, Sevilla’s last La Liga win at Camp Nou dates back to 2002, with Los Rojiblancos going winless in their 19 league visits to Barcelona since (D3, L16). 

If their recent away form is anything to go by, another long day is ahead of Sampaoli’s team as they head into proceedings winless on their last four top-flight travels (D2, L2). 

But after scoring in their last nine away outings in La Liga, Sevilla may still have a fighting chance against the league’s best defence.

Barcelona vs Sevilla Prediction 

Despite Sevilla’s mini-revival, a win at Camp Nou at long odds feels like it’s too much to ask.

We expect Barcelona to pick up where they left off in February and post another win ‘to nil.’

Barcelona 2-0 Sevilla
