Soccer Prediction for 24 January 2019 – Sevilla vs. Barcelona

Barcelona had almost been knocked out of the Copa Del Rey this season, not because they lost the last 16 matches, but because of the violations they committed in the first leg of the round against Levante. Fortunately, Levante was late in sending a report to RFEF, so Barcelona survived the disqualification and advanced to the quarter-finals. In the last two round eight, the Catalan giants will face one of their heavy rivals, Sevilla. The first leg match between the two itself is planned to take place on Thursday morning, 24 January 2019 at Estadio Camp Nou, Barcelona.

Sevilla did manage to advance to the last eight of the Copa del Rey this season, they also overall performed well on the Spanish La Liga stage, but in the last few matches, Pablo Machin’s landing squad appeared disappointing. In their last five parties in all competitions, Sevilla have lost 3 straight matches, just before the meeting against Barcelona, and only won one victory. Therefore, despite playing at home in the party later, it is believed that Sevilla’s chances of picking good results are small.

Moreover, Barcelona can be said to be in a positive trend, in its last five matches in all competitions, Ernesto Valverde’s landing squad won 4 victories and only lost once. On paper, Barcelona is slightly superior to the home team.
