Barcelona v Sevilla Preview, Primera La Liga, Saturday 14th September 2013

Barcelona have started the season in prolific fashion by winning all of their opening three matches, but people will have seen them struggle in their last two matches in which they huffed and puffed their way to a single goal victory against both Malaga and Valencia and if anything those results will probably have many of the Sevilla players confidence soar as a result.

However, Sevilla haven’t done much in their opening three matches and when they have come up against top class opposition like they did against Atletico Madrid on the opening day of the season, they were comfortably beaten even with having home advantage that night, so nothing really suggests that we will be seeing any kind of a shock result here.

Barcelona v Sevilla Team News

Barcelona Team News:

Sergio Busquests has a hamstring injury and is a major doubt for the hosts and both Isaac Cuenca and Ibrahim Afellay are definitely out as they recover from respective injuries. Other than these three players though coach Gerardo Martino has a full squad to choose from with Lionel Messi leading the attack up front who will be looking to add to his five goals already scored this season.

Sevilla Team News:

Midfielder Daniel Carrico and Defender Cicinho are the only two casualties for the visitors as both players continue to receive treatment for respective injuries. Kevin Gameiro will likely lead the Sevilla attack up front who is the clubs current top goalscorer with two so far this season.

Who Has The Advantage?

Saturday night’s match from The Nou Camp Stadium will become the 42nd meeting between the two clubs over the years with Barcelona having won 22, Sevilla having won 10 and the remaining 9 matches having finished all square.

Recent meetings show Barcelona with the clear advantage having won 3 of the last 5 games and both sides sharing the spoils in the other 2 games.

Average Goals Per Game?

117 goals have been scored during the previous 41 matches which gives us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.85 which indicates that we should see at least a couple of goals scored during this game on saturday night.

Barcelona just edge the recent form stats having won 3 of their last 5 matches and remaining unbeaten. Sevilla have only lost 1 of their last 5 games, but have also only managed 2 victories.

Barcelona v Sevilla Match Betting Odds Market.

Barcelona rarely lose games and even less when playing at their fortress which is the Nou Camp Stadium, so no shock to see the online bookmakers running scared and offering out ridiculous low odds of 1/5 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) being the current best price on offer for win number four of the season.

The Draw has happened twice in the last five meetings between the two sides and might tempt some in at generous odds of 7/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

Sevilla not really shown much this season to suggest they can cause what would be a massive upset come saturday night and win this game so even at odds of 16/1 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers) it looks unlikely that the bookies will see much action on this.

Barcelona v Sevilla Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Pretty much a no brainer this one as Barcelona will be expected to carry on their excellent start to the season and make this win number four, however the online bookmakers realise this and with such a short price available for a home win we are forced to look elsewhere for some value in this live televised match that can be seen on Sky Sports 2 High Definition on saturday night.

The goals statistics suggest we should see at least a couple of goals go in during this one and with Barcelona missing a few key players through injury, Sevilla might just be able to get one of them, so both teams to score should be a decent price and worth a closer look.

Lionel Messi has already scored five times so far in the opening three games and I would expect him to be amongst the Barcelona goals during this game as well, so ensure you check out his prices for first goal scorer and to score a brace as these two markets could also provide some value in what should be a very one sided game.
