Sevilla vs Barcelona

, KO: 20:00 May 26, 2024, Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan
Barcelona

SEVILLA are looking to end a disappointing campaign on a positive note as they battle Barcelona in the season finale on Sunday. The hosts have been out of sorts in recent weeks and should once again fall short to the Catalans, who have been in good form lately.

It has been yet another disappointing campaign for Sevilla, who are set to finish in the bottom half of the season once again. They looked to have turned a corner in April but returned to default settings this month and have now lost their last three matches, including a 2-0 defeat to Athletic Bilbao last time out.

A small positive for Sevilla heading into Sunday’s clash is that they have done some good work at home in recent weeks. Quique Sanchez Flores’ men have won four of their last six home matches but were beaten 1-0 by relegated Cadiz in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Barcelona have been in Real Madrid’s shadow for much of the season and are set to finish second on the standings. Xavi’s men have shown some good form in recent weeks, winning four of their last five matches, including a 3-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano last time out.

The Catalans have also been decent on their travels this season and are unbeaten in 16 of their 18 away matches. They picked up a 2-0 victory at Almeria in their previous fixture on the road.

How the bookies view it: Barcelona highly fancied

Barcelona have been installed as overwhelming favourites among the bookies and are priced at 17/20 by bet365 to claim the win. Sevilla are considered outsiders with a home win priced at 21/10 while a draw is also set at odds of 21/10.

Recent head to head: Catalans out in front

Barcelona have a fine record in this fixture and have claimed six wins and a draw from the last seven meetings. The Catalans picked up a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in September.

Players to watch: Lewandowski on hot streak

Robert Lewandowski has been the man in form for Barcelona in recent weeks with five goals in his last five matches. The striker has 18 La Liga goals this season and is priced at 6/5 with bet365.

Barcelona have also been solid at the other end of the pitch, keeping clean sheets in their last three matches. Inigo Martinez and Pau Cubarsi have been heavily involved lately and can lead the Catalans to another clean sheet at 12/5 with bet365.

Probable line-ups

Sevilla have plenty of Injury problems with the likes of Jesus Navas, Erik Lamela and Oliver Torres all sidelined. Adria Pedrosa is also likely to come in for Marcos Acuna at left-back.

Fermin Lopez could retain his place in the starting line-up for Barcelona after netting a brace last time out. Andreas Christensen could also be given a run out in place of Sergi Roberto.

Sevilla: Nyland, Bade, Ramos, Salas, Acuna, Sanchez, Ocampos, Agoume, Bueno, Lukebakio En-Nesyri
Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Kounde, Cubarsi, Martinez, Cancelo, Christensen, Gundogan, Lopez, Yamal, Raphinha, Lewandowski
