Team News: Sevilla
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui to be concerned with thanks to an otherwise robust group of players. Óliver Torres (Leg Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Barcelona
Out of a mainly healthy group, there is just the sole fitness worry for the Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman to be concerned about. Yangel Herrera (Tibia Fracture) misses out for this game. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Álex Collado and Moussa Wagué.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Sevilla could well find it tough to find the net against this Barcelona lineup who we reckon will just have the edge.
That’s why we have predicted a very even match with a 0-1 advantage for Barcelona at the end of this one.
Expecting it to be tight.
