Sevilla vs Barcelona Live : Sevilla vs Barcelona Live Stream Online Watch The Sevilla vs Barcelona is usually a Top 4 matchup in La Liga; it’s almost that this time around. Currently, Barcelona’s fourth in the standings, and Sevilla’s in sixth. Both squads have sights set on Champions League places for the coming season, though the way that Sevilla’s playing in Europa League right now–especially with newly-signed striker Chicharito–it could qualify for Champions League by winning Europa League. Meanwhile, for Barca, let’s just say it’s been a really good week to be Luis Suarez.
Suarez scored the opening goal in last week’s La Liga matchup with Getafe, which was good enough for Barca to get the 2-0 win. Then Suarez scored a brace to help Barca come back against Inter Milan in Champions League play, after the team gave up a second-minute goal and spent the whole first half and part of the second chasing the match. There are still question marks around Luis Suarez’s health, though it looks like Ansu Fati, thought to be too injured to miss out on Spanish U-17 activation during the upcoming international break, might be returning.
Sevilla beat APOEL 1-0 on Thursday, with Chicharito scoring the lone goal of the match. Last weekend, Sevilla found goals from Nolito, Lucas Ocampos, and Franco Vazquez to outlast Real Sociedad 3-2. While a draw would be a great result for Sevilla, especially given the match will be played in front of the Camp Nou faithful, both teams will be looking for a win to assert themselves in the standings. It really does look, from these early stages of the season, that La Liga will be more wide open than last year. (That doesn’t portend well for a Barca team that ran away with it last year. But Barca may find that this still works out in its favor.)
Both Ansu Fati and Jordi Alba are back in the Barcelona squad for their Sunday night meeting with Sevilla at the Camp Nou.Back from injuries, Ernesto Valverde is hopeful that the pair will be able to feature, particularly Jordi Alba given that backup left-back Junior Firpo is out injured.There is also a spot for 20-year-old Uruguayan Ronald Araujo, a defender with the B team.
Barcelona will want to build on their midweek win over Inter when they return to domestic action against Sevilla on Sunday and Ernesto Valverde has called on his players to put together a good run of form.
It’s been a mixed start to the season for the Catalan club so far, but coming from behind against Inter will have them facing Sevilla with confidence.”At Barcelona you can be at rock bottom on Monday and in heaven on Friday,” Valverde said of the ups and downs in the mood around the club at his pre-match press conference.
