In the upcoming fixture of the La Liga, 6th placed Sevilla is hosting the league leaders Barcelona in a thrilling fixture. This game would be of paramount importance for the hosts because in their last six head to head encounters with Barcelona they have failed to register a single win against them so far and it would be exciting to see if they can pull off a miracle. Sevilla’s last triumph over Manchester United would give them the confidence that they can beat Barcelona in this game which is most unlikely but still, they would go for it. The guests would come into this match with a terrific record and would like to add the three match points to their name and extend their lead on their rivals.
