Sevilla vs Barcelona: TV channel, live stream, squad news & preview

The Blaugrana can move 14 points clear of their nearest rivals at the top of the Primera Division should they win

Barcelona return to La Liga action following the international break as they make the trip to Andalusia to face Sevilla on Saturday.

Ernesto Valverde's men are 11 points clear of second-place Atletico Madrid after 29 games and can take a step closer to the Primera Division title with a win.

The hosts have shown their quality in the Champions League by reaching the quarter-finals, but their league form has been inconsistent and they are in a fight to secure European football.

The Catalan side came out on top when the sides met at Camp Nou back in November and another tight affair is expected at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Squads & Team News

Position Sevilla players
Goalkeepers Rico, Sori, Soriano
Defenders Corchia, Layun, Kjaer, Lenglet, Carrico, Arana, Escudero, Pareja, Mercado, Carole
Midfielders Mesa, Banega, Correa, Geis, Pizarro, N'Zonzi, Navas, Sarabia, Ganso, Vazquez
Forwards Ben Yedder, Muriel, Nolito, Sandro

Sevilla will be without Pablo Sarabia, who is suspended, while Sebastien Corchia is sidelined with a hamstring injury. Other than that, Montella has a fully fit panel.

Potential Sevilla starting XI: Rico; Laylun, Kjaer, Lenglet, Escudero; Banega, N'Zonzi; Sarabia, Vazquez, Nolito; Ben Yedder.

Position Barcelona players
Goalkeepers Ter Stegen, Cillessen
Defenders Semedo, Pique, Alba, Umtiti, Vermaelen, Mina, Vidal
Midfielders Rakitic, D. Suarez, Iniesta, Coutinho, Paulinho, Roberto, Gomes
Forwards Dembele, Messi, L. Suarez, Alcacer

Barca have been boosted by the return to full fitness of Portugal international Nelson Semedo and Belgium's Thomas Vermaelen, but Sergio Busquets is expected to miss out as he recovers from injury.

Lionel Messi sat out both of Argentina's friendly games during the international break and Valverde has indicated that the forward is not 100 per cent, so may begin the game on the bench.

Potential Barcelona starting XI: Ter Stegen; Vidal, Pique, Umtiti, Alba; Paulinho, Rakitic, Iniesta, Coutinho; Dembele, L. Suarez.

Match Preview

Barcelona will attempt to extend their unbeaten run in La Liga to 30 games when they take on Montella's Rojiblancos and they can move further clear at the summit by doing so.

With Atletico not in action until Sunday, the Blaugrana can potentially move 14 points clear of their nearest rivals with just 24 points to play for in the remaining eight games.

Interestingly, both Barca and Sevilla are in Champions League action a few days later - against Roma and Bayern Munich respectively - so they will undoubtedly have one eye on those games.

For the visitors that may mean leaving Messi out of the starting XI as a precaution, after the Argentine sat out both of his country's friendly matches during the March international break.

Nevertheless, with the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele leading the attack, as well as Luis Suarez, who is back from suspension, Barca possess ample star quality to secure victory.
