Sevilla - Barcelona Betting Preview: Why hosts can score twice

With the home side in good scoring form, our tipster believes backing them to net two times against the champions is a great option for a value bet
Barcelona travel to Sevilla on Sunday extremely aware of how they have struggled in recent matches against the Andalusians.

Earlier on this season at Camp Nou, the visitors came from 2-0 down to level things up at 2-2 only for Alex Sanchez to score a 93rd minute winner, while on their last trip to the Sanchez Pizjuan the Blaugrana had to come from 2-0 down themselves at half-time to record a 3-2 with another injury-time winner.

Barca know that it will not be easy against a Sevilla side who have been playing well despite losing their last two games and Paddy Power price a win for the champions at 8/15 (1.53). Sevilla, who boast one of the strongest home records in Spain over the last 18 months, are offered at 5/1 (6.00) with the draw available at 3/1 (4.00).

With Barcelona winning just one of their last four league games, now might be a good time to play Tata Martino's men and Sevilla will fancy their chances of continuing their good recent scoring record.

The hosts are offered at 21/10 (3.10) to score two goals or more and this may well be a shrewd investment for a small value bet.

Sevilla have scored two or more in seven of their last nine home Liga matches, as well as in two of their last three meetings with Barca. Unai Emery's side are one of the top scorers in the division and backing them to net twice against a Barca side that have been conceding regularly looks like a decent option.
