FC Sevilla are performing well in La Liga, finishing 2nd with 37 points after 17 rounds. In these matches, the home team has a score of 28:12, an average of 2.35 goals per game. Sevilla are now 6 points behind the leaders Real Madrid, but Real have played one more game and if they win, Sevilla can close the gap to just three points, which would be a nice achievement before the Christmas break. In Europe, Sevilla failed to make it through to the knockout stages of the Champions League, leaving them with only the Europa League.

Visiting FC Barcelona are having a disastrous season by their standards, finishing in 7th place with 27 points after 17 games. In these matches, coach Xavi's players have score 28:21, which means 2.88 goals per game. In the Champions League, the visitors, like FC Sevilla, will not make the knockout stage and will have to settle for the Europa League knockout stage. If Barca get all three points today, they will move ahead of Atlético Madrid into fifth place, which guarantees participation in the Europa League group stage for next season.

The games between these two teams have historically produced a lot of goals, but the last few years have not been so glorious and the last three games in La Liga have seen only four goals.

In this match I'm picking over 2.5 goals in the match. I do so for the reason that both teams will need to win three points, because Sevilla would close the gap to Real, while Barca could start to close the gap to the top of the Spanish competition. In Barcelona's games, they are conceding a lot of goals overall, their back line is not the same, but as far as the offense is concerned, it is one of the best in the league, just like Sevilla's, they have the same number of league goals scored. Moreover, this is the last game before the Christmas break and I expect the boys to leave the last remnants of their strength on the pitch.

Barca managed a 3:2 shootout with Elche at the weekend, and it was there that they proved once again that their defence is not at its best, although Piqué should be available for the Sevilla game. FC Sevilla managed a 2-1 win at home to Atlético and have something to build on.

My bet:
Over 2.5 Goals @ 2.20 (bet365)
