Barcelona is welcoming Sevilla to Camp Nou in a derby match or round 5 in the Spanish LaLiga.
Barcelona is playing well, and they are on a 5-game winning streak, including the two games in LaLiga. In their first two games in LaLiga, Barcelona has scored 7 goals while conceding 0 goals, which certainly a good sign for their defense. In their latest LaLiga match against Celta Vigo on the road earlier this week, Barcelona has had 57% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 1 big chance, and a solid 86% of the correct passes. The conditions in this game were brutal with a strong wind, lots of rain, and pretty cord weather overall, but Barcelona was still able to play their game where they dominated in the midfield, and they were solid in the attacking end. Barcelona has had 0-1 lead at the half time, but they also conceded a red card in the 42nd minute because of Lenglet’s stupidity. Despite being a player short for the entire second half, Barcelona was able to score 2 more goals, and they have won this match 0-3. With 6 points, 7 scored goals, and 0 conceded goals, Barcelona is in 5th place in the standings. Fati has scored 3 goals for Barcelona so far, while Messi and Roberto added 1 goal each. Coutinho has added 2 assists for Barcelona. Umtiti and Ter Stegen are both injured, while Lenglet will miss this match because of the red card. Barcelona is looking well under the new head coach, but their first real test will be in this match against Sevilla, and the best thing for Barcelona is that Messi is still warming up.
Sevilla has also started this season with 2 wins, but they have lost in the UEFA Super Cup against Bayern Munich. Sevilla is playing really well as of late, especially on the defensive end. In their latest LaLiga match against Levante at home earlier this week, Sevilla was the better team with 65% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and high 885 of the correct passes. This was an exciting game, and the only thing it was missing was goals. Sevilla had one canceled goal, but they were able to score another one in the 92nd minute, and Sevilla has won this match 1-0. En-Nesyri, El Haggagi, Rakitic, and De Jong have each scored 1 goal for Sevilla so far this season, while Navas added 2 assists. El Haddadi and Jordan each added 1 more assist. Perez and Salvatierra are both injured, and they will not be playing in this game. I like Sevilla, and I see them in the race for the Champions League, and if they can stay consistent, possibly even in the race for the title.
When playing at home, Barcelona has not lost to Sevilla in their last 14 games. Barcelona is on a 5-game winning streak, while Sevilla hasn’t lost in their last 9 away games. This will be a treat as both teams are playing well, and both teams are playing nice soccer. Barcelona has injury problems on the defensive end, which is why I think they will concede a goal, but they will win this match.
