The Sevilla game is one of the key games of the season. A victory would allow Barça to tie on points with Rayo Vallecano and finish 2021 in Champions League positions. What seemed so far a couple of weeks ago is now within reach.
Not so much because of the good performance of the team, which has not yet happened, but because of the constant loss of points by the teams that are at the top of the table.
It will not be easy because Sevilla have great players in all lines, but like the Catalan club they are plagued with injuries in many positions.
Despite his bad season in goal, he will be Marc-André ter Stegen. The German goalkeeper will be in charge of trying to clear the door in a very difficult game
In defense he will return Gerard Piqué sanctioned for accumulating yellow for the match against Elche. Since Xavi does not like Dest or Mingueza, we will see him again Ronald araujo on the right side. Accompanying Piqué in the axis of the rear he will play again Lenglet whom Xavi trusts too much. The left side will be for Jordi Alba.
Sergio Busquets will be in charge of organizing the engine room and will have inside Gavi and Nico leaving Frenkie de Jong on the bench once and for all. It is time for you to wake up.
The wide open ends will be Ousmane Dembélé and Ez Abde, who today are the most dangerous players with the ball of the Barça team. Philippe Coutinho will be waiting for a chance on the bench in the second half. At the tip of the attack he will repeat Ferran Jutglá that left great minutes and a beautiful goal in his match against Elche.
Goalkeeper: Ter Stegen
Defenses: Araújo, Piqué, Lenglet and Jordi Alba
Midfield: Busquets, Gavi and Nico
Lead: Abde, Jutglá and Dembélé
