Barcelona News and Form
Barcelona have slipped to a surprising D3 L1 run of form in their last four games. So they need to really pick themselves up as they return to action. This is a great game in which to do it as they would climb back to the top of the table with a win. Barcelona have drawn their last two home games in the league, games against Girona and Atheltic Bilbao. This is a big period for them because the following weekend they will be meeting with Real Madrid in El Clasico. Barcelona to win by a one-goal margin is at 10/3 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 5:17 pm).
The reason that appeals is because is six of their last eleven wins over Sevilla have been by the one goal (all competitions). Barcelona have scored 14 goals at home this season (average 3.5 per game) so they do have the scoring power in them of course. Lionel Messi is the 9/4 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 5:17 pm). He has five league goals in four home appearances this season. Definitely, because the Catalans are conceding at the moment, it is worth looking at both teams to score.
Sevilla News and Form
Sevilla have taken everyone by surprise then as they were the leaders at the international break. That was after a four-match winning streak out of the blue. They had only gone W1 D1 L2 in their opening four games of the season. But they have switched on the scoring power and have returned fourteen goals in their last four games. Over 3.5 goals is at 8/11 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 5:17 pm). They can challenge here.
Sevilla are W3 L1 in their last four road games, winning their last two. They have averaged over three goals per game away from home this season. This will be their first away game this season against a side in the top six, but they did hammer Real Madrid 3-0 at home back at the end of September. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last four games. Andre Silva, Wissam Ben Yedder are the ones who are firing them along with goals. Given the way they are playing, seeing them cover a +1.50 Asian Handicap looks a great option at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 5:17 pm).
Barcelona v Sevilla Head to Head
Barcelona have won four of the last five meetings with Sevilla in all competitions (D1) so they do have the head to head form going. Three of those four wins there were only by a 2-1 scoreline. Each of the last six have produced at least three goals between these two and Barcelona are on a five-match winning streak at home in the league against Sevilla.
