Players to Watch
Ivan Rakitic
Ivan Rakitic

0 0 0 0
Rakitic has been in great form for Sevilla since signing in January, even when his team-mates have been less than impressive. He has scored important goals, and generally been Sevilla's focal point.
Busquets
Busquets
Position: Midfielder
Squad Number: 16

The defensive midfielder's importance to Barcelona is often overlooked. It will fall on his shoulders to slow Sevilla's attack, particularly with the absence of Carles Puyol in defence, and he will also contribute to Barcelona's own attack.
Prediction
Barcelona are flying high, and you can expect them to continue that form in this game. Sevilla will not make it easy for them, but their inconsistency this season points too a heavy defeat.
