Sevilla vs Barcelona Prediction:Sevilla will enter this tie on a winning thread of their own. They won seven on the trot across competitions, being much tighter at the back along the way. Julen Lopetegui is doing a fantastic job on Sevilla’s bench. His men conceded just one goal in the last seven matches across competitions. The team is now even stronger for Papu Gomez who managed to score a screamer on his debut in the weekend’s 3-0 thumping of Getafe at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Although the Catalans are on a six-win streak, Sevilla looked much more impressive lately. Los Rojiblancos are capable of hurting this Barcelona team and we see a fantastic value in backing the home win at the odds of 3.25. The value is enormous also with Alejandro Gomez to score anytime at the sky-high 4.00 odds. The fantastic Argentinean has bagged his first Sevilla goal in the first appearance for the club and he should have plenty of room to deliver past the struggling defence of Barcelona here.
