Quick Facts

  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in each of previous nine matches between the two teams
  • Barcelona are after their 28th Copa del Rey trophy
  • Sevilla failed to keep a clean sheet in last five fixtures

  • Barca defeated Athletic Bilbao in the 2014/2015 Spanish Cup final (3-1)

Barcelona vs Sevilla Prediction

Barcelona did well to win the La Liga trophy at the weekend, but they do not want to stop now. The Catalan giants aim to defend the Copa del Rey trophy and seeing that Sevilla head into the game following a victory over Liverpool in the Europa League final, I am tempted to put my money on the reigning champions. Barcelona have been impressive in La Liga of late and they are likely to crush los Sevillanos, who head into the match with a severely-weakened squad.
