Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
All eyes will be on Camp Nou when Barcelona and Sevilla go head to head in the La Liga derby. Barca did well to crush Real Madrid 4-0 before international break, with the team keeping their title hopes alive. Xavi is doing a great job with the Camp Nou outfit, and, as a result, the odds for home win have been dropping. A man to watch in the home team will be in-form attacker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while Dest, Roberto, Fati, and Nico should miss out with injuries.
Los Sevillanos, on the other hand, have drawn each of their last three league fixtures. Julen Lopetegui’s troops aim to stay in the title race, but seeing that Barca are a real force to be reckoned with at home, the visitors are unlikely to grab something from the match. All Suso, Acuna, Rafa Mir, Rekik, and Delaney remain in the recovery room, speaking of the away side.
Highlighted Player (Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang):
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the most famous Gabonese player and he is the first footballer from Gabon to appear in Bundesliga. Aubameyang played for the likes of Dijon, Lille, Monaco and St. Etienne in the past before joining Borussia Dortmund on July, 2013. The pacey attacker signed a five-year contract with the Millionaires and he has been producing outstanding performances with the Signal-Iduna-Park outfit ever since.
Aubameyang impressed in the 2015–16 Bundesliga, scoring 25 goals in 31 appearances for Borussia Dortmund, but that did not help Thomas Tuchel’s men win the domestic trophy. Speaking of his international career, the 187-cm-tall striker made his Gabon debut on 25 March, 2009 and he scored his first goal for the national team in a 3-2 win over Morocco.
