Barcelona vs Sevilla 2021: Predictions, Line-ups and Team News

Date:

Barcelona meet Sevilla for the third time in a month – this time for the Copa del Rey 2nd leg.

The Blaugranas have a tough job to do at home: recover from a 2-0 first leg deficit. With Pedri injured, and Ter Stegen having a scare in the previous match, the Copa del Rey might be the only chance of their silverware this season; a Herculean task at that.

Barcelona and Sevilla now meet for the second time in four days.
