SEV Vs BAR Dream11 Prediction: Barcelona’s sternest test awaits them today as Sevilla serve as a tricky challenge in their title march.
The return of La Liga 2019-20 was a favourable one for Barcelona however that narrative is set to change come today. Handed over a relatively straightforward set of fixtures to restart the league, the side comes across Sevilla today, a team which is completely well endowed to curb Barcelona’s march towards the title.
However, despite the severity of the task which lies in front of them, Barcelona makes for outright favourites ahead of the imminent tie. The side has taken little time to settle into its groove, registering two emphatic wins on the bounce since the league has once again made a foray amidst the havoc wrecked by Coronavirus.
Defeating Leganes 2-0 the last time around, the side has now hit 6 goals in its last two clashes without conceding a single one in reply. The performances have seen them not only maintain their two-point lead over Real Madrid but reaffirm their status as staunch contenders for the title, one which is edging ever closer for the table toppers.
Drawing 1-1 with Levante the last time around, Sevilla’s aspirations of making it into second place were poured cold water. More importantly, the win puts them in a precarious position ahead of this clash with the side clutching at stalwarts in a bid to maintain their standing in the top 4.
Their attack has slipped up, a travesty which will be the reason for the loss this encounter by the smallest of margins.
