Barcelona v Sevilla Betting Tips: Match Preview
Barcelona will face a very known opponent in the Tuesday match from the UEFA Super Cup final. The pre-season warm up had mixed results mainly to the absense of the participants in the Copa America 2015 like Messi & Neymar. Performance rating currently at 57% but expecting to rise once the season starts.
55 million euro spent on transfers so far, for just 2 players: Arda Turan from Atletico Madrid 35 million and Aleix Vidal from Sevilla for 20 million. Three days later after this match, Barcelona await 2 games against Atletico Bilbao for the Spanish Super Cup (August 14th & 17th 2015).
Overall record against Sevilla W25-D10-L10 with 4 wins and 1 draw in the last 5 meetings. With the full squad back, we are expecting Barcelona to breeze through this match, in anticipation for the other two matches awaiting them later that week. While the odds for the victory as low @ 1.30 the Asian Handicap betting markets are giving out generous odds for -1.5 @ 2.00.
Both teams have managed to score in each of the last 5 games, and each game has seen 3 or more goals, so Both Teams to Score – Yes and Over 2.5 Goals seem safe options for this match as well.
Sevilla’s pre-season matches exposed a lot of weaknesses in the team, leaving them with a performance rating of 43% and overall 2 victories in 7 games. The last victory the team has achieved against Barcelona was back in 2010 in the Super Cup, with 3-1. Overall 10 victories 10 draws and 25 loses against Blaugrana with 4 losses and a draw in the last 5 most recent matches.
New names for the team so far this season are: Michael Krohn-Dehli from Celta Vigo as a free agent, Ciro Immobile from Borussia Dortmund on a loan, Steven N’Zonzi from Stoke City for 9.7 million euro, Sergio Escudero from Getafe for 2.5 million euro, Adil Rami from AC Milan for 4.2 million euro, Mariano Ferreira from Bordeaux for 3 million euro and Gael Kakuta from Chelsea for 4.5 million euro.
Plenty of new players to strengthen the team, it’s up to Unai Emery to find the correct position for all of them. He managed to lead Valencia to the third position 3 seasons ago and had quite success with the team. Last season managed to lead Sevilla to the 5th position and win Europa League, so perhaps a return in Champions League is expected from him this season.
While Sevilla might not have great chances against Barcelona, it will be a good test for the team to face another Spanish opponent, which they will eventually have to face at least twice this season.
Barcelona are a true favourite in this match, with all starters back in the team after a prolonged vacation for those participating in Copa America 2015 like Messi, Neymar, Dani Alves etc. The odds for a victory are low @ 1.30, but Barcelona -1.5 on the Asian Handicap is @ 2.00 with bet365.com
In the last 5 games, all games have seen 3+ goals and every time both teams have managed to score a goal. Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 1.75 is another great betting option at bet365.com
