Barcelona believe it!
Barcelona are unbeaten in 15 consecutive games in the Spanish La Liga. As 12 of them are victories.
Although with a game more, the Catalans are at a distance of 5 points to the leader Atletico Madrid.
And especially after Saturday's victory over Sevilla, they are without a doubt in high spirits and expectations.
Not only for the Championship, but also for the rematch for the King's Cup.
Seville is not to be underestimated!
Sevilla were also in a good series in La Liga until their last match. As before, they recorded 5 consecutive victories and it was zero.
They have practically only lost two of their last 14 games. Both are 0-2 from Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
Sevilla have the 2nd strongest defense in the Primera after that of Athletes. And the strongest in particular of the visiting teams.
Forecast for Barcelona - Sevilla
This match will be the 4th between the two teams for the season.
In the first of the championship at the same stadium they drew 1-1.
Then they exchanged a 2-0 victory at the stadium of Seville in a match of La Liga and in the first match for the King's Cup.
Let's now think about what can be expected from this match in the circumstances of the result of the first.
Such cases in meetings with eliminations are a constant phenomenon. And it's good to know some basics.
From the point of view of the home teams, I have most often heard speeches of the sort:
"We had a task to look for a mandatory early goal." "Wounded" means a goal until the 60th minute.
From the guests I have most often heard:
"We had to play patiently and disciplinedly in defense and look for a goal opportunity."
In this case, I'm sure of a few things:
- That Sevilla can play patiently and safely.
- That Sevilla could score if given the opportunity.
At the same time, I'm not sure about other things:
- That Barça may not give an opponent a goal opportunity.
- That Barcelona can quickly find a way to score.
There is something else very important that I heard from coaches after such a match. And that is when the host says:
"We were looking for an early goal, but we allowed the opponent to take the lead. We tried everything and turned the game around, but we couldn't continue. "
This is just one of the three most likely scenarios. But I will try it with a minimal bet, of course.
