“Sevilla” is now in perfect order, won several victories in a row. Sevilla is the main competitor of Real Madrid, while it is 6 points behind, but the margin of safety for the team of Yulen Lopetegui is quite powerful. The victory over Atlético Madrid was very emotional, it was won on the case. “Sevilla”, by the way, misses the least of all.
Barça started scoring – 2 scored against Osasune, 3 against Elche. But Barcelona still has very big staffing problems, and game problems as well. Xavi cannot immediately wave his magic wand and fix everything. I think Barça’s pause will be beneficial. But at the moment Barcelona are not a competitor to Sevilla.
The hosts, having spent a lot of energy and emotions with Atlético, will play very carefully, organically, as they can with Lopetegui. I have practically no doubt that Sevilla will not lose, and less than 4 goals will be scored in the match. Barça can score against Osasune and Elche, but it is much more difficult to score against Sevilla. If we take the last Sevillian matches, there are only low classes. Only in 2019, when Messi was enchanting, something effective emerged.
My prediction is that Sevilla will not lose and the total is less than 3.5 goals.
