The Spanish champions have been misfiring of late and we are backing their trip to the capital of Andalusia to produce few goals this weekend

Ernesto Valvderde takes his Barcelona side to the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday to face Sevilla in traditionally one of the toughest La Liga fixtures of the season.

Barca recorded a goalless draw at Lyon in the Champions League on Tuesday, meaning the Blaugrana have now failed to score in three of their last four away games in all competitions.

One of those games was at Sevilla, where they suffered a 2-0 Copa del Rey defeat a month ago before turning the tie around at Camp Nou.

Latest odds

Sevilla enjoyed a 2-0 home win over Lazio on Wednesday in the Europa League at bet365 offer them at 7/2 (3.50) to claim another success. Barca are available at 19/20 (1.95) with the draw at 3/1 (4.00).

Team news

Lionel Messi has started Barca's last two games after a slight injury and although he has not looked at his best, his importance to the side means he is likely to play. The Catalans remain without midfielders Arthur and Rafinha.

Sevilla are missing widemen Nolito and Aleix Vidal, while Sergio Escudero picked up a knock in the win over Lazio and is out. Jesus Navas is also a doubt for the hosts.

Preview

Sevilla consistently cause Barca problems when facing them at the Sanchez Pizjuan.

In 2015 the Andalusians won this fixture 2-1 and in 2018 Barca needed two goals in the last two minutes to draw 2-2, while last month Sevilla were comfortable winners in the cup.

The La Liga champions have looked surprisingly blunt in attack in recent weeks and two goals scored in their last four games is not a normal return for Barcelona.

Sevilla, though, have looked tired which is only natural given their season started in July with Europa League qualifiers. 

Tips and predictions

Each of Barca's last four matches have seen under 2.5 goals including their trip to Sevilla four weeks ago. A repeat is available at 6/4 (2.50) and this is a selection that has also paid out in seven of Sevilla's last ten home games. 

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
