Barcelona will not be able to make the season a success, but have clearly come alive under Xavi
The Blue Granatas have endured some very disappointing years. This season has certainly turned out to be a black one. Koeman failed to cope with Messi’s departure and an abundance of injuries, and completely botched the start of the tempo. No, Xavi also had his share of setbacks. Already with their legend, the Catalans were knocked out of the Champions League and the domestic cup. But gradually the ex-midfielder restructured the game, and the winter transfer campaign was quite fruitful. And it was especially evident in the last round, when they beat Real Madrid in the El Clasico. Also, they scored 4 unanswered goals in Madrid! True, there is 1 caveat: Yes, on the 1 hand, we want to beat Sevilla and move up to 2nd place. But, on the other hand, on Thursday we will have an away game with Eintracht Frankfurt am Main. And it is only in the Europa League that “more than a club” can take the title! Perhaps we should give the leaders in the La Liga a rest for this trip?
Sevilla have been frankly disappointing of late
White Andalusia as a whole look pretty good when it comes to overall results, and that’s purely in the Primera. The ambitious club crashed out of the Champions League in the group stage, then suffered setbacks in the Cup (a scandalous derby loss to Betis) and the Europa League (they beat West Ham 0-1 at home but then conceded two unanswered away goals). That leaves only the Primera, but there is no longer a fight for the title, not a race for Real, but only a simulation: in 7 out of the last 9 rounds there were only draws. The Nervionense have won only against Elche and Betis at home and the gap to the Galacticos has already reached 9 points. Moreover, there is a risk of not only being left without 2nd place, but even there is a risk of leaving the top 4.
Sevilla have won only once in their last 9 matches – in the cup, 2-0. And even there, Barcelona were able to conduct a decent ‘comeback’, and in the end went on to qualify. In December this La Liga season, the Blue Granatas were able to pull out a 1-1 draw at Ramon Sanchez Pixuan.
Barcelona are stronger and would have to prove it. But Sevilla will also try to show their teeth, so a total of more than 2.5 goals is worth looking at (odds – 1.97).
