Barcelona will lock horns with Sevilla at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium this Saturday night as they look to pick up all three points at home. The Catalan club managed to secure an easy 4-0 win against Real Valladolid last weekend which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this showdown versus the Andalusian outfit.
Xavi will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to keep changes to a minimum for this game. Robert Lewandowski is nailed-on to lead the charge for Barca on the attacking end of the field but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be sidelined for this game due to a fractured jaw.
4-3-3 Barcelona Predicted Lineup To Face Sevilla
Marc-André ter Stegen will function in goal for Xavi’s side after keeping a clean sheet in his last La Liga appearance. Eric Garcia could once again get a chance to impress alongside Ronald Araujo at the heart of Xavi’s defence. Both of them will have to defend their penalty box well if they want to keep the Sevilla attackers at bay during the game.
Jules Kounde could fill in as a makeshift right-back while Alejandro Balde focuses on catching the eye from the left-back position. They could both get the license to get forward and join in on the attack.
Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba will have to settle for a place on the bench as they wait for their chance to impress in the second 45 minutes if needed.
Pedri, Sergio Busquets and Gavi will get the responsibility of anchoring the midfield for Barca. Pedri managed to get his name on the scoresheet last weekend, so his confidence would be quite high ahead of this game.
Sergi Roberto, Ferran Torres and Franck Kessie will have to be content with a spot on the bench as they wait for their chance to make an impact in the latter stages of the game if needed.
Ousmane Dembele could be given the nod to make a few dangerous runs with the ball down the left flank while Raphinha hopes to prove his worth as the right-sided wide player.
Robert Lewandowski will lead the line for the Catalan giants in the final third after scoring a brace versus Valladolid last weekend.
Ansu Fati will be named on the bench but might come on to make an impact in the second half if Barca are in need of a goal by then.
