Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Sunday’s football match at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan pits together Sevilla and Barcelona. With no more than one point separating the two teams in the La Liga standings ahead of Matchday 11, a close encounter is on the cards this time out. Los Sevillanos have been impressive at home this term, and they are eyeing their sixth consecutive victory at “Pizjuan”. Jorge Sampaoli’s men did well to beat Atletico Madrid in their last home fixture and that is the main reason why we predict the Andalusians will pick up one point from Sunday’s football game. Barcelona experienced all sorts of problems in a 3-1 loss to Manchester City in midweek and seeing that they failed to impress in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Granada at the weekend, the Catalan giants would not be too disappointed with one point from the clash. A man to watch in the away team will be Leo Messi, who scored his 90th Champions League goal against Manchester City.
Highlighted Player (Vitolo):
Over the years Victor Machin Perez - Vitolo has established himself as one of Sevilla’s key players. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a forward as well, won his third consecutive Europa League trophy with los Sevillanos in 2016.
Vitolo was born in Las Palmas on 2 November, 1989 and he played for his home-town club Las Palmas from 2010 to 2013. The Spanish footballer joined Sevilla on 28 June, 2013 and, no doubt, he made the right decision when he moved to Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Vitolo played one game for Spain in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, but he failed to make the final cut.
However, he established himself as a first-team regular under Julen Lopetegui. Vitolo scored his first goal for La Furia Roja in an 8-0 win over Liechtenstein and he provided an assist for David Silva as well. He has a contract with Sevilla which expires on 30 June, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Barcelona):
Barcelona is a Spanish football club based in Barcelona, Catalonia. Barca were founded in 1899 and they are regarded as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Catalan giants won their 24th La Liga title in 2016, with Luis Suarez winning “El Pichichi” award. Barcelona have won five European Cup trophies and a number of top-class players were part of the team in the past.
The likes of Hristo Stoichkov, Romario, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona and Pep Guardiola are some of many players that played for Barca in the past, but, no doubt, Leo Messi has established himself as the club’s trademark. Barcelona welcome their rivals at Camp Nou, the stadium that was built in 1957.
Barcelona’s local rivals are Espanyol, but the rivalry between Barca and Real Madrid is much bigger. The two La Liga giants face each other in “El Clasico”, which is considered one of the most exciting derbies in the world football. Barca are famous for their football youth school La Masia as well.
