Barcelona vs. Sevilla Betting Tips: Two bets for La Liga match on ITV 4
Fans of Spanish football are in for a treat on Sunday night when ITV 4 plays host to Barcelona vs Sevilla in La Liga.
BettingOdds.com has previewed the Nou Camp encounter and provided two bets for your perusal.
Barcelona vs Sevilla Odds
Barcelona head into the 20th wave of La Liga fixtures with a five-point cushion over defending champions Real Madrid at the top of La Liga, a margin that may well have been reduced to three points come Sunday afternoon given that Real Madrid are in action earlier in the day away to Mallorca.
Whatever the outcome of that match, new Spanish Super Cup winners Barcelona will be confident of either restoring the five-point gap or increasing their lead at the summit, given that Xavi's troops have won 16 of their 19 matches so far this season, losing just once.
Barcelona host a Sevilla side that may have finished in the top-4 in the last three seasons, but are currently way off the pace down in 13th, just two points above the drop zone. However, Sevilla do appear to be turning a corner under returning boss Jorge Sampaoli, who has recorded three wins from four league games in 2022.
Still, it would be a tough ask for the visitors to come away from the Nou Camp with all three points. Barcelona are unbeaten in the league on home soil this season and have won their last nine successive games in all competitions. Unsurprisingly, they are heavily favoured by bookmakers at 1/3 to pick up another win in their pursuit of the title.
Sevilla are out at 10/1 to claim an upset, while a draw is available at 17/4.
Barcelona vs Sevilla Tips
The first pick in the betting book is Erik Lamela to himself be booked at 15/8 with Paddy Power.
No player in the whole of La Liga has committed more fouls this season than the Sevilla attacker.
The former Spurs player has racked up a hefty 47 fouls in just 17 matches - averaging an offence every 25 minutes - and has fouled three or more times in five of his last six games, picking up three yellows in the process.
He's received seven yellows for his league crimes so far this term, two of which came in the same game as the ref showed him his marching orders.
Branch that out to include all competitions and Lamella is on double figures for yellows and has had his name etched in the ref's book in each of his last two appearances against Cadiz and Osasuna.
Robert Lewandowski will obviously be well fancied in the anytime goalscorer market, but at odds-on there's not much value to be had there.
Instead, I like the price of Pedri (Pedro González) to hit the back of the net at a best-priced 11/2 with BetUK.
The midfielder has hit a pocket of form, netting three times in his last five matches in all competitions. This includes the winners in 1-0 La Liga victories over Getafe and Girona, and Barcelona's third in their impressive 3-1 Super Cup triumph over Barcelona.
Considering his current hot streak, he's difficult to overlook at 11/2 to sparkle in front of goal once again.
