Sevilla vs Barcelona Betting Tip and Prediction

Sevilla vs Barcelona – Copa del Rey: The Copa del Rey’s final is played at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, in Madrid
Between two teams that have been making remarkable campaigns.
Each on their own level. Barcelona is leading La Liga, taking large steps towards winning the title, having been underwhelming in Europe by falling on the quarter-finals of the competition.
As for Sevilla, with less brilliance on their campaign, they managed to achieve the same level of their rivals on the Champions League, while still having this possibility of playing for the Cup title.
This is an opportunity for Sevilla to show their skills, leaving behind the idea that they failed one of their main objectives of the season, which was qualifying again onto the Champions League.
On that race, Valencia’s great campaign left them with less margin to work with. On their path until this point, I highlight the elimination of Atlético de Madrid, on the quarter-finals, and of Leganés, on the semi-finals.
But it is interesting to analyze, on the current period of the season, where the team’s focus has been. They are winless for 7 consecutive matches,
on their attempt to go far on the Champions League, taking advantage of the rhythm, to also go all-out on this Cup final.
For Barcelona, with the league title practically clinched, they have the fact they weren’t able to at least go one round further on the Champions League in the back of their minds.
It’s not just the fact that they’ve fallen on the quarter-finals, but also the fact that it happened against AS Roma, a team that isn’t considered to be part of the elite of European football.
The Copa del Rey might, now, appear as an opportunity of revenge, for a team that also finds a lot of motivation when they play in Madrid.
Sevilla vs Barcelona – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On the weekend, they drew against Celta de Vigo, on a match that already gave some signs of management from a side that, to reach the final, eliminated Celta itself, Espanyol and Valencia.
Without a doubt, Barcelona comes into this match as favourite.
