Sevilla v Barcelona tips – Lopetegui's side a big price to win

At the time of writing, Sevilla are 33/1 to win the 2020/21 La Liga title, although Julen Lopetegui’s side know that a string of victories could really propel Los Nervionenses into the championship race and this needs to start with a win over a Barcelona side who have been blowing hot and cold.

Even so, Barca are favourites to win at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, with Ronald Koeman’s side having recently enjoyed an emphatic 5-1 win over Alaves although that result was followed by a 4-1 tonking at home to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Can We Back Sevilla With Confidence at 23/10?

Sevilla have pretty strong home form this season and we’re surprised to see them trading at 23/10 on the full-time result betting market to win this clash. Lopetegui’s side have secured eight wins from eleven games played at their own stadium and it’s notable how stubborn the team have been from a defensive point-of-view.

Before Sevilla were turned over at home to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, they were enjoying an excellent run of victories and they were incredible defensively to the extent that just one goal was conceded in that run of eight games.

Jules Kounde has been a star performer at the back in front of goalkeeper Bono, while Ivan Rakitic will be lining up against his former club and Sevilla recently beat Barcelona in a Copa del Rey clash despite being sent off as big betting outsiders for that clash.

Should We Put Barcelona in Our Accumulator Bets?

Barcelona are still challenging hard for the La Liga title and they could still be in contention considering that Atletico Madrid have started wavering at the worst possible time, with Barca now trading at single figure betting odds and they’re no bigger than 6/1 to scoop the Spanish title this season.

However, there was that Champions League humiliation at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain followed by a 1-1 draw against Cadiz, with the latest Spanish football odds comparison revealing that Koeman’s team are trading at 6/5 to win this particular match.

Barca might not be the most trustworthy team in this situation and they have failed to win four of their eleven away games this season, with Lionel Messi no longer capable of singlehandedly winning football matches like previous years when he was the best player in the world.

On the flip side, Messi is in excellent scoring form at the moment and there have been eleven goals from the serial Ballon d’Or winner in as many games, with Barca having to get on the front foot and win this clash if they’re to stay in contention for another Spanish league title.

What Are the Best Bets for Sevilla v Barcelona?

We just feel as though Sevilla are the big betting value for this clash and it could be worth considering the home team on the Asian Handicap if you want to get Spanish football betting odds with a spot of insurance. You can get 7/10 about them with half a goal advantage and that looks a very solid proposition.

Barcelona are a team that can be opposed and they might struggle to break down a rock-solid defence. If you’re looking for a more adventurous price, you might consider a victory for Sevilla on the 1x2 betting market and the odds are currently 23/10.

There is also the chance to back a Sevilla win to nil at big betting odds of 11/2 and they are sure to run a tight ship against a Barca team who often seem toothless if that man Messi is nullified throughout a contest.
