Barcelona v Sevilla tips – can Barca overcome the odds?

There’s a reasonable chance that Barcelona could end up having a potless season considering that the Catalan club are playing catch-up in the Primera Liga title race, while Ronald Koeman’s side are effectively out of the Champions League after getting thumped at home to Paris Saint-Germain where Kylian Mbappe ran riot at the Nou Camp.

Perhaps Barca’s best chances of winning a trophy this season is through the Copa del Rey, with Koeman desperately looking to land silverware although they will have to produce some magic in order to overcome a stubborn Sevilla team.

Barcelona Now 7/2 to Win Copa Del Rey This Season

The bookies now make Barcelona one of the outsiders to win the 2021 Copa del Rey, with Koeman’s side 2-0 down after the first leg at Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, with Ivan Rakitic haunting his old club and scoring a second goal which might end up proving to be decisive.

If you compare the latest Copa del Rey outright betting odds, then you can find 7/2 available with Unibet and that will obviously seem like an enormous price if Barca are somehow able to wrestle themselves back into the tie and find a way through to the final.

This tie will take place just four days after the two teams meet in Seville in a Primera Liga clash, with Barcelona having hosted their opponents much earlier in the season and that ended in a 1-1 draw, so Barca will have to find a way of scoring at least two goals in this clash.

Sevilla Now Copa Del Rey Favourites After Beating Barca

Sevilla moved above Barcelona in the La Liga table after a recent 2-0 victory away at Osasuna, with Luuk de Jong scoring in that game and the Dutchman has been in good scoring form recently, although the real strength is the team’s defence and Julen Lopetegui’s side will be confident when it comes to denying Barca many scoring chances.

If you compare the Spanish football betting odds, you will be able to find 5/4 about Sevilla winning the Copa del Rey and we shouldn’t forget that this team won the Europa League last season and should be able to contain Barcelona to the extent that they reach the final and line up as very strong favourites.

Levante and Athletic Bilbao are lining up against each other in the other semi-final and the winner of the Barcelona v Sevilla tie will be overwhelming favourites to triumph in the final.

Barcelona Massive Favourites to Win Second Leg

If you compare the latest bookmaker odds, you will find that Koeman’s side are the big outsiders at 5/2 to qualify from this semi-final clash and they not only have to keep Sevilla at bay for ninety minutes but find a way to score at least two goals against a defence which has proved to be impenetrable in recent weeks.

However, the bookies do make Barcelona strong favourites at best football odds of 8/15 and they will look to go on the attack, with Lionel Messi in excellent scoring form and perhaps some magic from the serial Ballon d’Or winner could put his team back in contention.

On the flip side, there are still no supporters in the stadium and the betting odds of 5/1 about a Sevilla win could be worth a nibble considering that the home team have to take risks going forward.

What Are the Best Bets for Barcelona v Sevilla?

We actually think that Barcelona are too short in the betting on the 1x2 odds market and the best ploy could be Sevilla +1 which is available at around the even money mark. The visitors are outstanding from a defensive point-of-view and we don’t expect keeper Bono to be collecting the ball from his net on too many occasions.

Sevilla are capable of keeping things tight and you can back Under 2.5 Goals with a fair degree of confidence, with the bookies offering odds as big as 6/4 about this outcome.
