Sevilla v Barcelona
Barcelona are arguably the best club side in the world. They won the Champions league in Europe last season and in Lionel Messi they have a player who has been called the best footballer in the world. Even so they have some ground to make up on Real Madrid in the latest standings and they can begin to get closer in the league to their biggest rivals by winning this match away from home.
Barcelona are second in the league while Sevilla are 11th. Barcelona have a superior goal difference by 58 goals this season to date. The last two matches between the sides have ended in draws but Barcelona won the previous five, including a 5-0 in 2010.
In matches against common opponents Barcelona have a win rate of 95%. Against the same opposition Sevilla have won 62% of these matches. The away side also have a far greater goal difference in these matches. On current form and recent comparative form this is a game Barcelona can and must win if they are to get closer to Madrid in the league table.
