Tip Barcelona - Sevilla
Barcelona and Sevilla are set to face off for the fourth time this season as they contest for a place in the Copa del Rey final. This game at Nou Camp, comes just four days after facing off in La Liga, a game that Barcelona won 2-0. Barcelona’s last loss was at the hands of Sevilla, in the first leg of this tie. They lost 2-0 at the time, and the Catalans have all to do in this game. After scoring 12 goals in the five matches that followed that loss, they can only hope to improve in defence, having conceded six. The last two matches have presented an improvement in defence as they registered straight clean sheets – they have just five in the last 15 matches. Barcelona have won 10 of their last 15 matches, and three losses therein, have all been in cup games. They have just one outright win and one clean sheet in the last five Copa del Rey matches.
Sevilla have now conceded five goals in the last three matches and this should be a major concern going to a game against Barcelona. Their biggest source of hope will come from the fact they have straight wins and four clean sheets in the last five away matches. In the last 15 away matches, Sevilla have lost just once, against Atletico Madrid. They have nine clean sheets in 14 away matches across all competitions and are unbeaten in their last six Copa del Rey matches. They have six straight clean sheets and six wins in the competition and go here with four straight away wins in Copa del Rey matches. In one of the two away losses they have in 14 matches in this competition, Sevilla suffered a 6-1 loss to Barcelona in 2019. They have a poor run against Barca – one win in the last seven meetings, and they’ll be hoping to at least get a draw here.
Key points Barcelona - Sevilla
Sevilla have one win in the last seven meetings with Barcelona.
Sevilla have five straight away wins.
Barcelona have one clean sheet in their last five Copa del Rey matches.

Conclusion Barcelona - Sevilla
Sevilla need at least a draw, but can also lose 1-0 and proceed after their 2-0 win at home in this tie. They haven’t done so well defensively lately and Barcelona will want to take advantage of that, as they play at home. Sevilla have however been good away from home and do not concede a lot in their away matches. The visitors also have a good run in the Copa del Rey and may coin a good strategy to frustrate Barcelona who haven’t been at their best this season. A draw may pass here.
