Team News: Barcelona
Pedri (Muscle Injury), Miralem Pjanić (Ankle Injury), Ronald Araújo (Ankle Injury), Ansu Fati (Mensical Laceration), Sergi Roberto (Muscle Injury), Philippe Coutinho (Rupture of Outer Meniscus) and Moussa Wagué (Patella rupture) won’t be available for Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman.
Team News: Sevilla
Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui has to currently contend with reduced team options. Lucas Ocampos (Ankle Injury) and Marcos Acuña (Thigh muscle rupture) are not able to play.
In this match, Sevilla are certainly able to score against this Barcelona lineup, although it probably shouldn’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
