Welcome back to TalkBarca. Our topic for today is the Match Preview of the second leg of this year’s Copa Del Rey, FC Barcelona vs Sevilla. FC Barcelona is all set to face off Sevilla once again in the knockout fixture of the CDR. The teams faced off against each other the previous weekend and Barcelona won that game with flying colors. Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi registered their names on the scoresheet while Sevilla was not able to score a single goal.
This game is going to take place inside FC Barcelona’s home, Camp Nou. However, this encounter is going to be surely unpredictable. Can FC Barcelona make it to the next round?
FC BARCELONA VS SEVILLA MATCH PREVIEW
FC Barcelona was very dominant when Sevilla and FC Barcelona previously faced each other. The team played as a unit and Ronald Koemann had his tactical planning on point. Ousmane Dembele and Lionel Messi also scored 1 goal each. Marc Andre Ter Stegen kept a clean sheet as well. Therefore, it turned out to be one of the best games for FC Barcelona for the season. The team displayed an amazing display of tactical play and total football.
Sevilla is going to come into this game with the defeat in mind. The previous performance can play a little part, but it is not going to change Sevilla’s attitude at all. Both teams are almost at a similar position in La Liga. Sevilla has also impressed a lot this season. Therefore, it is stupid to think that Sevilla is going to play poorly against FC Barcelona just because they lost to the Blaugranas at the weekend.
Sevilla is enjoying the form of its life in every competition. They not only made it to the semi-final of the CDR, but they are also in the top 4 of the La Liga. This goes to show that Lopetegui’s men are going to come into this game hungry for a win. They are going to come at Ronald Koemann’s men with all guns blazing and are going to win this no matter what.
This enthusiasm and passion are going to make this encounter worth watching and a treat for the neutral fans.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM FC BARCELONA?
FC Barcelona is setting high bars of the standard this season. They are currently sitting in 2nd place in the points table, but have also been nominated to have one of the best attack and defense of the season. Despite the huge crisis in defense, and uncountable mistakes in the attack, Barca has still managed to make such a name for itself. This proves that class is always permanent. FC Barcelona is going to come into this game with the intention of winning it. Ronald Koemann is doing a very fine job as FC Barcelona manager and he is finally settling in. Koemann is a mastermind and his elite tactics are one of the reasons why FC Barcelona thrashed Sevilla last week.
Barcelona is going to stick to its natural playing standards. The home turf is going to provide a bit of support. Koemann is going to try and dominate the game from the get-go because an early goal is going to help the team a lot in terms of confidence and momentum. Ronald Koemann must choose his starting lineup very wisely because any slight mistake or injustice can cost the entire team. Reaching the semi-finals of any competition is always a tough task. Now FC Barcelona should target to win the tournament and nothing less than that. It is also very unlikely that Koemann opts for the exact starting lineup that he chose on the weekend. This is because FC Barcelona is dealing with injury issues and other problems as well. However, he has a huge responsibility on his shoulders today. He must not let this one slip.
This is surely going to be a nail-biting encounter. FC Barcelona vs Sevilla is always a fun game to watch. However, this game is going to be even spicier since it is a semi-final. Barcelona is the favorite team to win this game. However, nothing can be commented on at this stage.
The best and bravest team is going to make it to the finals.
