As a result of a series of disappointing records achieved in the last few games in the League, Barcelona must be willing to be removed from the throne of the standings, and they are now in the 2nd place. However, the Catalan giants have the chance to reclaim top spot in the standings, when they face Sevilla who sit in the top position at the moment. This super big match is scheduled to take place on the upcoming Sunday morning, October 21, 2018.
As we said, Barcelona recorded a series of disappointing results, especially in the League stage in their last few games. Most of the matches ended in a draw, including when dealing with Valencia before the international break yesterday. In fact, Barcelona performed brilliantly in the European Champions League, with two wins from two fairly heavy group phase matches.
However, the fact is that Los Catalan is not far from the top of the Spanish La Liga standings, they are only one point behind Sevilla who sit on the throne of the standings. That is, this weekend’s match could be a good opportunity for Ernesto Valverde’s squad to regain the top of the standings.
It’s just that it’s never been easy for Barcelona to win in the match against Sevilla. Moreover, before Sevilla beat Real Madrid with a landslide score of 3-0. In his last five matches, Sevilla also recorded four wins and only lost one. But it must be remembered also the fact that the match will take place at Barcelona headquarters.
