Real fire test

Sevilla and Barça meet to measure themselves in LaLiga. Whoever wins the game will come very close to the top of the table (Mov. LaLiga, 16:15).


The dance between Seville and Barcelona begins with a match that, although it does not aim to be decisive, can make it very clear the path that both teams can follow from tomorrow. This afternoon at the Sánchez Pizjuán (4:15 p.m. Movistar LaLiga) a rehearsal with real fire will be staged for the game, this final yes, next Wednesday at the Camp Nou with the same protagonists in the Cup semifinal in which the Sevilla starts 2-0 in favor.

If the two coaches agree on something, it is to ensure from the outset that this afternoon's match will have nothing to do with the Cup match (follow the match live on From Sevilla the attitude of covered is adopted and they do not want to monopolize the spotlight. Lopetegui does not want to hear about options for LaLiga and ensures that he looks more at the fifth than the first.

But it cannot be denied that thanks to an impressive streak of 9 league games won over the last ten (with eight consecutive wins), the people of Seville are going like a plane. So much so that if they beat Barcelona they would tie with Madrid provisionally in second place with one game less than the whites. Little joke with Sevilla.

From Barcelona, the appointment is reached with the utmost precautions. Koeman's men have a serious problem when they face big teams and in their last two league appearances against Cádiz and Elche they left much to be desired.

The Blaugrana will face a rival that in the last month has only faltered against Dortmund, who defeated them last week in the Champions League. It remains to be seen if Messi, a specialist against Sevilla, can play Haaland today. The Argentine is a toothache for Sevilla, but the Argentine arrives heavily loaded with matches since the fate of his team depends on him. The return of Araújo is expected to prop up a defense caught with pins, but the young Uruguayan lacks the rhythm of matches before a meeting of this caliber.
