FC Barcelona continues to defend the first place in LaLiga. The Barca team, with 50 points, has a five-point advantage over Real Madrid, their closest rival, who has 45, waiting for what they do on their visit to Mallorca.
Xavi Hernández’s team comes into the match against Sevilla on an immaculate streak. The Catalans have not known defeat in LaLiga since they lost against Real Madrid in October 2022. Since then, full of victories, they stumbled against Espanyol. These results, added to the punctures of Real Madrid, have boosted the lead.
Barça will not have it easy to get the three points. In front they will have a Sevilla that has not just taken off despite the arrival of Jorge Sampaoli. The sevillistas are still at the bottom of the table with 21 points, two units from relegation.
However, Sevilla has managed to link two consecutive victories against Elche and Cádiz, two of the teams in the lower zone and who will fight until the end for permanence. Despite the elimination in the Copa del Rey, the Andalusians appear at the meeting with enough confidence to try to storm the Camp Nou.
Barça, however, is the favorite to win the game. But Xavi, who will not have Ousmane Dembelé, wanted to be prudent in the press conference before the game: “We are on the right track, under construction, it is excessive to compare ourselves with other times and say that we can be one of the best teams in the club history”.
